South African Defence Review 2014

The 2014 South African Defence Review is now available online. Chapter 12 deals with military discipline. Echoing a point made in last year's edition and the one before that, the 2014 version asserts:
[C]hallenges arising from the application of the Military Discipline Supplementary Measures Act and limited training thereon have led to perceptions that military discipline has been compromised and the authority of Commanders eroded. The current system has specifically disempowered commanders by removing the summary discipline system away from the commander to the military courts.
