Description

The United Kingdom has operated a system of military courts-martial for centuries and, effective in 2009, created a Court Martial as a permanent, standing court for military matters. While UK law preserves the traditional military structure of discipline from within the chain of command for some offenses, these have been significantly narrowed by recent legislative acts. The Judge Advocate General is now a civilian lawyer and, as of 2009, the prosecution for serious crimes was removed from the chain of command and placed in the hands of the Director of Service Prosecutions, who may be a civilian lawyer. A new complaints procedure was introduced after the deaths of four soldiers at barracks in the UK. The procedure still involves the traditional chain of command, but provides an independent complaints commissioner that may hear complaints and refer them back to the complainants chain of command.Israel's military justice system has not been significantly changed by statutory amendment since the Military Justice Law (MJL) first went into effect in 1955. This Law established two mechanisms for military adjudication, namely, a system of court-martial adjudication, and a system of disciplinary adjudication. New circumstances arising from changing times, the passage of the Law for the Prevention of Sexual Harassment, 5758-1998, and requirements introduced by the Supreme Court have resulted in the need to adopt new policies. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has therefore issued a number of military orders that deal with disciplinary adjudication. The IDF has also established a school for military justice and requires adjudication officers to complete training offered by the school.When Germany reestablished its Armed Forces after World War II, a deliberate decision was made to have criminal offenses committed by soldiers tried in the ordinary courts and this principle remains in force today. The only existing military courts are disciplinary courts, which have jurisdiction over disciplinary offenses of members of the Armed Forces only. Even though the Basic Law (Constitution) allows for the creation of a military court to serve during war time, no legislation has ever been enacted to create such a court. The only significant change to the existing system was enacted in January 2013, when venue for the criminal offenses of soldiers under certain deployments was centralized in the courts of Kempten, a city in Bavaria. This serves the purpose of facilitating prosecution by allowing the prosecutors of that district to gain expertise in the investigation of offenses committed abroad and in combat situations.
