Colombian military justice bill passes third reading, 30-2

By a vote of 30-2, the pending military justice bill was approved by the First Committee of the Colombian House of Representatives in its third reading. Vanguardia has the story here. One criticism of the measure is that it permits military courts to try sex offenses. The last time Congress passed military justice reform legislation, the Constitutional Court set it aside for procedural irregularities.
