Posted by:

This arrested General had better HOPE that his prosecution is moved to a civilian court and away from a “Courts Martial” or Military tribunal, for a couple of simple reasons: In the military tribunal, according to their own Uniform Code (“UCMJ”) of Military Justice” they only need two (2/3) thirds of the “jury” (other military officers!) to convict, whereas in civilian court, you need a “unanimous” verdict. And did you also know that the UCMJ allows the “jury” of military officers in the Military trial to question the witnesses — and to also “cross examine” the Defendant General (if he takes the stand in his own defense) AFTER his lawyer and the prosecution are done questioning the witness?
