Egyptian Children in Military Court

http://www.hrw.org/news/2012/03/27/egypt-children-trial

In Egypt, military courts run the judicial system in the country ever since their Liberation. The military courts in all countries are known to be unfair, pretty biased and brutal. These courts are created for the purpose of taking cases of Military Officials who broke the law in some way. The reason I explain this is that in Egypt there have been at least 43 children in trial inside of these courts. This is completely unfair for these children and their families. For example Islam Harby, a 16-year-old boy has already served a year in an adult prison due to an unfair trial before the military court. Do you think these children should be tried in a military court? What could be done or put in place to either neutralize the courts or provide for a better judicial system at least for the youth? Can you do something about it? Or do you know someone who is?
