Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz has said his ministry is continuing to work

on options for dealing with conscientious objectors.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, the minister said their efforts are aimed

at protecting the Turkish state from new fines to be imposed by the European

Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) due to Turkey's policy of mandatory military

service. In Turkey, military service is compulsory for all male citizens over

the age of 20; however, if a man is enrolled in an institution of higher

learning, he is allowed to delay his service until he completes his

education.

“We are working on a plan for conscientious objection. Males will either

serve in the military or be allowed to skip out on service by agreeing to

submit to penalties,” the minister said. He did not elaborate on what such

penalties might entail.

According to Article 72 of the Constitution, all Turkish citizens must

perform military service: “National service is the right and duty of every

Turk. The manner in which this service shall be performed, or considered as

performed, either in the Armed Forces or in public service shall be regulated

by law.” In addition, Article 45 of the Military Penal Code explicitly

states, “Individuals may not evade military service, and penalties may not

be revoked, for religious or moral reasons.” Such legal mandates make

conscientious objection a crime in Turkey.
