The Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act of 2000 (MEJA) was primarily crafted to establish federal criminal jurisdiction over civilians employed by or accompanying the armed forces outside of the United States.9 This includes (1) civilian employees, (2) contractors and subcontractors, and (3) employees of contractors and subcontractors.10 Dependents of members of the armed forces and those “employed by the Armed Forces” also fall under the act’s jurisdiction. This article discuss various aspects of the MEJA.
