"The attached document, a chart entitled 'Comparison of Selected Procedural Rights in Criminal Tribunals' is provided in response to your request for a new version of the chart from CRS Report RL31600, The Department of Defense Rules for Military Commissions: Analysis of Procedural Rules and Comparison with Proposed Legislation and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. In addition to columns comparing the rules for courts-martial and for military commissions as presently established by the Department of Defense Military Commission Order No. 1, the chart provides information regarding the procedural rules in selected international tribunals. These include the International Military Tribunal (IMT) established by the Allies to try European Axis war crimes after World War II, as well as the more recent 'ad hoc' tribunals established by the United Nations Security Council to try war crimes that occurred during the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda."
