After a decade of insurgency, Pakistan’s Tribal areas remain in a state of crisis. In the Tribal areas, the courts are barred from upholding the fundamental rights protections guaranteed under Pakistan’s constitution. This document summarizes the report by Amnesty International which shows that, rather than investigating and prosecuting the perpetrators of these abuses, the authorities have given sweeping powers of arrest and detention to the armed forces, cementing the culture of impunity.
