Australian Defence Force seeking feedback on military justice system

Today the Australian Defence Force announced it is seeking feedback on the military justice system. The Inspector General of the ADF has commissioned a questionnaire which aims to improve problem areas. The feedback opportunity is open to anyone who has been involved in any capacity in:
  • a Defence Force Discipline matter;
  • the discipline officer scheme;
  • a redress of grievance, or
  • an unacceptable behavior complaint.
Any comments made will be treated in confidence. To participate in the feedback questionnaire go here.

ADF also indicated that the Government is now preparing a permanent judicial solution in which serious service offences will be tried by a court which meets the requirements of Chapter III of the Constitution. In August the High Court of Australia declared recent reforms that established the Australian Military Court in the Defence Force Discipline Act 1982, to be invalid.
