Where the Court Martial1 convicts a person it must pass a separate sentence in respect of each offence of which he is convicted2.
Any sentence passed by the Court Martial must be determined by a majority of the votes of the members of the court3, and in the case of an equality of votes on the sentence, the judge advocate has a casting vote4. The sentence5 must be recorded in writing, dated and signed by the judge advocate6 and the president of the board7. The judge advocate must make the statement of reasons, and give the explanation, required by statute8
