Another example of poor reporting

One of the frustrations of trying to follow military justice developments on a global basis is the very uneven quality of the journalism on this subject. Consider this article about civilian court review of a Gambian Armed Forces court-martial arising from a 2014 coup attempt. It provides no clue as to what legal issues the convicted persons, some of whom are under death sentences, have raised. The article describes the trial as having been held in secret. Might that be an issue?
