587. Custody during Service Civilian Court proceedings.

Where a person has been arraigned before the Service Civilian Court1 and proceedings before the court have not concluded, a judge advocate2, if satisfied that taking him into service custody is justified, may direct the arrest of that person3. Any person with power to arrest that person for a service offence4 has the same power, exercisable in the same way, to arrest him pursuant to such a direction5. Where a judge advocate has such power6 to direct the arrest of a defendant7, he also has power to issue a warrant for the defendant's arrest
