South Korea's move is too harsh: for religious reasons, he refused to serve in the military and worked in prison for three years

January 01, 2020 09:56 Observer


(Observer.net) South Korea has made a tough move in the military service.

According to the Yonhap News Agency on the 30th, South Korea ’s Ministry of Defense announced on Monday that Korean men who have refused military service due to religion or personal religious belief will be allowed to work in local prisons for three years instead of South Korea ’s two-year compulsory military service.

According to Korean law, all physically fit Korean men must serve in the military for a period of about two years. Escaping service will be sentenced to prison.

And just last Friday, the South Korean parliament passed a bill that would allow men who refuse military service for personal religious reasons to serve in prison for 36 months instead of joining the army.

According to the bill, those who refuse military service for religious reasons such as "freedom of conscience" can choose to serve in an educational reform facility for 36 months. The alternative military service system will be officially implemented in January 2020.

According to the bill, when the system was first implemented, the relevant service personnel would uniformly serve in educational and reforming facilities. After the system is perfected and taken root, the service units will be expanded to fire departments and welfare agencies.

In fact, the Korean court passed a landmark constitutional ruling in 2018 before the new law was passed. The ruling states that it is necessary to provide a small number of religious believers with an alternative form of military service that does not involve the use of firearms or other weapons.

South Korea's Ministry of Defense earlier announced the new plan and said it had taken into account fair treatment of active duty soldiers and some key principles to prevent the use of new regulations to evade recruitment.
