Not military justice, but . . .

Controversy continues to swirl in New Zealand over a failed defamation case against a journalist. Excerpt:
A failed challenge to the credibility of a journalist by the Defence Force has blown up in its face, cost taxpayers more than $1 million and resulted in an Afghan police unit commander whose evidence did not survive scrutiny seeking to stay in New Zealand as a refugee.
Details about the case can be found in this report from The Otago Daily Times.
During the three-year battle, the Defence Force used 15 lawyers at a cost of $643,000.
