A Conversation With the Chief Prosecutor of Military Commissions
Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, chief prosecutor in the Office of Military Commissions, will discuss the Military Commissions Act of 2009, which reformed a system much criticized when established in 2001 by presidential order. Martins will address key features of the current military commission process, including due process protections, narrowness of jurisdiction, oversight by federal civilian courts, compliance with international legal obligations, public trial requirements and transparency measures. He will also discuss continuing challenges to the reformed system's legitimacy, suggest what will be necessary to surmount perceptions of "victor's justice," and offer thoughts on the future of efforts to hold al-Qaida and associated forces accountable under law. Considerable time will be reserved for questions from the audience.
