Application for judicial review by the Judge Advocate General of the Canadian Forces
On Friday, 20 January 2023, the National Post and other Postmedia newspapers in Canada published an article indicating that the Judge Advocate General of the Canadian Forces (JAG), Rear-Admiral (RAdm) Geneviève Bernatchez had filed a notice of application before the Federal Court of Canada, seeking to block the publication of a report into allegations of wrong-doing raised by one or more of the JAG's subordinates.
The news report raised as many questions as it answered. Global Military Justice Reform contributor, Rory Fowler, expands upon this issue, and the questions arising therefrom, in his Blog here:
