Liberian UCMJ to be updated

The speaker of Liberia's House of Representatives is taking steps to move ahead on four long-delayed bills. One of them concerns military justice:
The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) aims to reform the military as it rebuilds its forces with an emphasis on human rights and professionalization, including ensuring continued progress and that members act according to the rule of law. 
The law will also discuss pretrial, trial, and post-trial procedures, including modes of proof, for courts-martial, military commissions and other military tribunals, and procedures for courts of inquiry, among others.
This Daily Observer article is sparse on details. The second quoted paragraph seems to track Article 36(a), UCMJ.
