When was the appeal?

From South Sudan we read of the firing squad execution of two soldiers for murder and other offenses. The men were arrested on July 17 and executed on July 22. From the news report:
No one, according to the town mayor, is above the stipulated laws. 
A military judge cautioned soldiers against violating army regulations. 
“This is a warning to those soldiers who used to violet the military regulation, it is also what tell the people of South Sudan that any soldier found committing crime against civilian should be deal with,”a judge, who preferred anonymity said on Friday.
Conspicuously absent is any reference to appellate review.
