Dueling data

Victims' families at the
Legislative Yuan
This article in the China Post describes a current controversy over limitations on the jurisdiction of the Executive Yuan's Military Injustice Petitions Committee, an agency that reviews courts-martial. Depending on whose numbers you credit, the committee has rejected only a handful of the cases brought to it since last August, or nearly all. The controversy arises from the decision to exclude cases that are over 20 years old or that involve alternative service conscripts.

Readers in Taiwan, can you shed further light on this situation?

Who should review courts-martial and other military disciplinary actions--a court or an administrative agency? What should the time limit be for review?
