Family of Army Veteran Pleads for Justice
The family of army veteran, Hasan Askree, who was court-martialed after writing a critical letter to former army chief, has spoken out for the first time.
They claim Hasan was unjustly tried in a Field General Court Martial, and was incarcerated alongside hardened criminals and terrorists in a maximum-security prison. Despite a court order to transfer him to Adiala jail, he has not been moved.
His family maintains that court-martialing a civilian for attempting to seduce military officials made a mockery of the offense of mutiny and insubordination. Hasan’s mother is suffering from end-stage renal failure, and his father is 87 and has multiple ailments, making it difficult to visit him.
The family has not received any communication regarding the charges or verdict. The military’s public relations arm, Inter-Services Public Relations, has not commented on the matter.
