In the Ohashi case before the Australian Military Court at Rabaul in 1946, the judge advocate stated that the notion of “fair trial” supposed, inter alia, that:
–the accused should know the exact nature of the charge against him/her;
–the accused should know what is alleged against him/her by way of evidence;
–he should have full opportunity to give his own version of the case and produce evidence to support it.
