The Installation of Military Justice in Madrid

The Installation of Military Justice in Madrid

(p.53) 2 The Installation of Military Justice in Madrid
Franco's Justice


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the repressive jurisdiction that prosecuted civil war criminal ‘responsibilities’ — the military justice system. It traces the historical reasons why the military could arrogate to itself such powers. It stresses that the military authorities accepted, and acted upon, the assumption that everyone who remained in Madrid during the civil war could be guilty of ‘military rebellion’.

Keywords:   Spanish Civil War, military justice system, civil war criminals, Madrid, military rebellion
