BELGRADE, March 9 (Reuters) - Serbia is set to pardon tens of thousands of draft dodgers, most of them hiding abroad, more than a decade after wars in the Balkans ended, the country's justice minister said on Tuesday.

The draft law, which is currently being debated by parliament, envisages a full pardon for all those who evaded conscription for the nine-month service after 2006 or fled from their units.

Serbia: an end to conscription?

According to a report in BalkanInsight.com, Serbia's minister of defence Dragan Sutanovac has announced that compulsory military service will be suspended and the professionalisation of the Serbian Army be completed next year.

In an interview with the daily Blic, Sutanovac expressed his belief that the country's president Boris Tadic will be in a position to suspend compulsory military service based on a report given by the defence ministry.

1er décembre – Soutien au prisonnier et prisonnières pour la paix

« En septembre 2001, lors de ma demande aux autorités serbes de reconnaître mon droit à l'objection de conscience, douze 12 objos pour raisons religieuses y étaient emprisonnés. Avec la campagne organisée par l'IRG et d'autres groupes pacifistes, j'ai échappé à la prison et, de plus, les douze incarcérés furent libérés dans les mois qui ont suivi.»
