Mexican reforms summarized

It's from 2014, but still worth having: a summary of Mexico's military justice reforms, from the Office for Human Rights and Democracy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, available here. Excerpt:
It is important to emphasize that prior to the adoption of the aforementioned amendments, the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice issued criteria that restricted military jurisdiction for crimes against military discipline only in cases not involving civilians. Also, the Office of Military Justice has been following the practice of declining jurisdiction in favor of the civilian authorities.
