New special rapporteur on independence of judges and lawyers

Mónica Pinto
Congratulations to Mónica Pinto of Argentina on her appointment as the UN's new special rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers. Succeeding Gabriela Knaul of Brazil, Dean Pinto's portfolio will include military justice matters. Perhaps there will be further progress on the 2006 Draft Principles Governing the Administration of Justice Through Military Tribunals (also known as the Decaux Principles, for Prof. Emmanuel Decaux of France).
