The accused will face charges in the military court under the Army Act.

ATC Judge Hussain declares the May 9 “vandals” to be transferred.
On Tuesday, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Faisalabad approved turning over four suspects to the military court who were charged with targeting defense sites during the May 9 protests.

After Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was arrested, there were violent protests that followed. The commanding commander of the Pakistan Army sought the custody of the suspects who were reportedly responsible for attacking the office of a security institution in Faisalabad.

The case was heard by ATC Judge Muhammad Hussain, who also approved the transfer of the accused for an Army Act trial.

Party supporters allegedly looted government and military facilities on May 9 after becoming incensed by the detention.

The government enlisted the army to stop the violence and declared that the demonstrators would be judged according to army law.

In a nationwide sweep, many PTI employees and leaders have been detained.

Eight suspects accused of taking part in the attack on the General Headquarters (GHQ) during the May 9 riots were sent to military courts the day before by the ATC in Rawalpindi.

After Deputy Prosecutor General Malik Rafqat Ali moved a petition asking for the transfer of the suspects to military courts, ATC Judge Hamid Hussain accepted the transfer of the cases.

Similar to this, the commanding officer last week received 16 suspects, including an ex-PTI MPA who was implicated in the looting and vandalism of Jinnah House in Lahore.
