Statement on enforced disappearances and military jurisdiction
Judicial Protection | Duty to Investigate | Duty to Prosecute | Punishment
The Committee reaffirms that cases of enforced disappearance should remain outside of military jurisdiction that could limit the effectiveness of investigations, prosecutions and trials. Such cases should be investigated and prosecuted by or under the control of civil authorities and tried only by ordinary courts.
