"We must abolish the justice of another time"

The military court case involving journalists in Cameroon has kicked up a storm of protest. Consider this Fench-language op-ed in Camera.be. "Military justice is used . . . as political justice." The author comments that Cameroon is one of the last countries in the world to use military courts to try civilians. The article is not, however, entirely accurate: e.g., in limited circumstances a UK military court can try civilians.
