Al-Haq has repeatedly voiced its rejection and denouncement of prosecuting civilians before military courts. Al-Haq further deems that extending military jurisdiction to try and hold civilian persons to account is a clear and grave usurpation of civil jurisdiction and authority by the military judicial authorities. To this avail, Al-Haq presents this study in order to address the issue of military justice in the OPT from three main perspectives:
- The set of regulations that govern the operation of military justice;
- Legality of trying civilians before military courts; and
- Legal liability arising from detaining and trying military personnel and civilians before military courts.
