Martial law is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions by a government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory.

Martial law can be used by governments to enforce their rule over the public. Martial law may be declared in cases of major natural disasters; however, most countries use a different legal construct, such as a state of emergency. (Wikipedia)

Breaking Down Martial Law

Extract from Wednesday 15th October 2019

When martial law is declared, civil liberties, such as the right to free movement, to free speech or protection from unreasonable searches, can be suspended. The justice system that typically handles issues of criminal and civil law may be replaced with a military justice system, such as a military tribunal. Civilians may be arrested for violating curfews or for offenses that, in normal times, would not be considered serious enough to warrant detention. Laws relating to habeas corpus, designed to prevent unlawful detention, may also be suspended, allowing the military to keep individuals detained indefinitely without the possibility of recourse.

When to Declare Martial Law

Considering the negative ramifications, martial law can have on a country and its citizens, declaring martial law is reserved for situations in which law and order is rapidly deteriorating. It may be declared at home to reign in protests, civil unrest, coup d’états or insurrections. It may also be declared when a country’s military occupies foreign territory, such as at the end of a war.
