Kyrgyzstan military courts under scrutiny

Debate continues in the Kyrgyzstan parliament over whether military courts should be done away with. According to this report, it's a question of money and need:
Today, the initiator of the bill Almambet Shykmamatov (Ata Meken) said that the salary of the judges at the Military Court is several times higher than wages of other servants of Themis. However, the load on the Military Court is small. 
Judges of the garrison court receive 40-48 thousand soms, the Military Court - 55-61 thousand, municipal courts - 32-35 thousand. 
"We consider the Military Court as an excess burden. It exists in Russia and USA because they are military powers. Having eliminated these structures, free judges will be sent to the busiest local courts," Almambet Shykmamatov said.
