    Default 2010 Manual for Military Commissions

    Manual for Military Commissions, 27 April 2010
    The 2010 Edition of the Manual for Military Commissions (M.M.C.) is hereby published, with immediate effect, in implementation of Chapter 47A of title 10, United States Code, as amended by the Military Commissions Act of 2009 (Title XVIII of Public Law 111-84), 10 U.S.C. 948a, et seq. The M.M.C. consists of four parts: I, Preamble; II, Rules for Military Commissions (R.M.C.); III, Military Commissions Rules of Evidence (Mil. Comm. R. Evid.); and IV, Crimes and Elements.

    Pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 949a, the M.M.C. is adapted to the Manual for Courts-Martial.

    Default Hi Ted

    Thanks for posting the link to new manual. I should do a review of it - I've skimmed it, but have been more interested in other stuff. It does have at least one error (kind of funny).

    From the Table of Contents

    Rule 202. Persons subject to the jurisdiction of the military commissions . . II-15
    (a) In general . . II-15
    (b) Determination of unlawful enemy combatant status by Combatant Status Review Tribunal or other competent tribunal dispositive . . II-15
    (c) Procedure . . II-15
    and in the actual rule:

    Rule 202. Persons subject to the jurisdiction of the military commissions

    (a) In general. Any alien unprivileged enemy belligerent is subject to trial by military commission under chapter 47A of title 10, United States Code.

    (b) Privileged belligerents. Military commissions under chapter 47A of title 10, United States Code, shall not have jurisdiction over privileged belligerents.

    (c) Competent Tribunal. A military commission is a competent tribunal to make a finding sufficient for jurisdiction.
    The old CRST process is a dead duck - and has been for a couple of years.

    Regards

    Mike
