Military justice bureau proposed for Ukraine

Anatoliy Matios, Ukraine's chief military prosecutor, has called for creation of a State Bureau of Military Justice, according to this report.
“I persistently urge society and lawmakers to create (in analogy with the NABU) the State Bureau for Military Justice. In the warring Ukraine, the military prosecutor’s office must be authorized to fully monitor the observance and application of laws in all military formations. This right should be secured at least temporarily, for the period of the Joint Forces Operation and the law on the peculiarities of the state policy on securing Ukraine’s state sovereignty over temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Luhansk regions,” he wrote.
The proposal will be considered at a conference next week:
Matios noted that the bill on the State Bureau for Military Justice would be presented to the public and experts in Kharkiv on May 29-30 during an international conference “Reforming Military Justice System in Ukraine: The Current State and Prospects.” An expert assessment of the document will be given by experts of military justice from more than ten countries who will take part in the event.
