Military Courts In A Democratic South Africa

The independence of South African military courts is questionable in light of the new Constitution. Problems relating to judicial independence and the right to be tried by an independent and impartial tribunal can be identified at various levels in the hierarchy of military courts. Aifheli s research project investigates ways of achieving an appropriate degree of judicial independence of military courts in South Africa. It will attempt to find comprehensive solutions on ways of improving the judicial independence of these courts.
