    To a great extent, it is right that Disciplinary Proceedings of the Defence Forces is high flawed and mostly totally influenced by the desire of the personal ordering the C of I (Board of Inquiry in Naval parlance).

    The problem is that the Judge, Jury and the Executioner is vested in only one organisation i.e. JAG (Judge Advocate General) Branch and the JAG's future is decided by the very person who order the Inquiry, the Summary of Evidence, Court Martial and who Promulgate the Sentence.

    Much debate has gone on internally, but none wants to give away the powers of being 'Mogambo, Khus Hai' since it could be taken as losing face and thus authority and unquestioned ease in exercising command.
