Is There a Right to be Tried by Court-Martial?

Every so often one runs across a case in which a soldier claims a right to be tried by court-martial. It's happening in Pakistan, where former President and Army chief Pervez Musharraf has appealed the denial of his objection to being tried for high treason by a special court instead of a court-martial. His appeal will be decided by a two-justice division bench of the Islamabad High Court. Readers in Pakistan: please keep us posted on the appeal.
