Military judicature actually exists! It acts and produces results!
“Sworn Administrative Inquiries” might be the most effective way of covering up any offenses of the Hierarchy… The constantly repeated and multiplied complaints of hazing incidents against both soldiers and the students of Productive Schools might encounter the main characteristic of civil justice – that it is blind…
The investigations and judicial proceedings regarding fatal accidents might have never revealed the true culprits – the government policy which in the name of martial readiness and combat effectiveness systematically sacrifices staff, as it always murders the victims a second time by blaming them…
But as for military judicature and the military prosecutor…They are in full readiness to virtually destroy any young person who gets entangled in the cogwheels of compulsory conscription. The offspring of the rich, famous athletes and artists and journalists of the regime might enjoy a multitude of privileges and facilitations… But not anyone who is truly in need, not anyone who for purely procedural reasons, which of course are beyond the control of simple citizens, finds himself on the boundary of law and order provisions!
This happened to G.K. who has been living in the UK for 11 years.
He came to Greece for a few days due to serious family reasons and for a job interview. While on his way back to the UK, at passport control it was found that he had exceeded the stay limit for people who have not fulfilled their military service and live abroad, by 3 days.
After checking the dates of his flights during the year (which is certainly not rock solid evidence as he may have left and come back to the country by other means of transport) it was suggested by the military prosecutor that he should be prohibited from leaving the country.
He was arrested and detained for several hours at the airport security building where he testified. Apart from the trial he now must face, a ban on him leaving the country was issued. All this even though he was just a pending appointment (with the Greek embassy in London) away from the right of an annual six-month stay in Greece. In just six months he will be 35 years old and can buy off the service.
Now he is stuck in Greece and will almost certainly lose his job in England where he has an underage son (with British citizenship).
The reply of the army to the above was “You should have been more careful; we can’t do anything”. Does anyone dispute the characterization of civil justice as blind, barbaric and class driven? Military justice has again exhibited extreme rigor and complete indifference: let you lose your job, let your child stay far from his father.
And to think that the vast majority in the military are war professionals who have never experienced the jungle of labour relations in the private sector but chose a military career for professional stability.
They decide for G.K. and every G.K. who compulsory conscription recruits as free labour and as a consumable for their military adventurism.
