European Committee of Social Rights: Conclusions 2004 (Cyprus)

Service required to replace military service

In its last conclusion, the Committee considered that the duration of the service that replaced compulsory military service was excessive (Conclusions XVI-1, pp. 98).

10. Le Comité est préoccupé par le traitement inéquitable des objecteurs de conscience à Chypre, qui sont soumis à un service de remplacement, d'une durée excessive de 42 mois, ce qui n'est pas compatible avec les dispositions des articles 18 et 26 du Pacte, et par le fait que les personnes qui n'accomplissent pas de service militaire sont passibles de sanctions répétées.
