Transparency watch in Australia

BuzzFeed News continues to report on efforts to gain access to the names of Australian military personnel who are tried by military courts. Excerpt:
While public access to defence court martials is theoretically possible, it is made exceedingly difficult by the defence department; the organisation refuses to publish court lists, and requires media personnel to be escorted in and out of proceedings.
How about listing who is being tried for what, when, and where on a website that is accessible to the public, as in Canada
