Top court upholds earlier verdict regarding court martial


ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court on Friday rejected defence ministry’s review petition against its order to uphold the Lahore High Court (LHC) decision that said there could not be court martial of a military official over non-disclosure of his financial assets, according to a report published in an English daily said.

Gill, an army officer, was tried by field general court martial (FGCM) on three charges relating to the money matters and one relating to the improperly filing of his tax return for 1996-97 by declaring his salary as his sole source of income, while he had income from other sources as well.

The apex court’s three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Umar Ata Bandial, resumed hearing of the ministry’s review petition regarding reinstatement of military official Colonel Munir Ahmad Gill.
