Especially in criminal cases, the military police, the military prosecutor, and the military judge have jurisdiction over the investigation and the trial.

Any member of the armed forces who is dissatisfied with an unfavorable disposition made against his/her will can file a petition for examination, the process called Petitions on Military Personnel Management. If he/she finds the result of this petition unsatisfied, he/she could file administrative litigation as well.
