Taiwan has NOT abolished conscription, contrary to what your article says. Young men are unfortunately still liable to four months of compulsory military service. I would also like to know what persons refusing to perform this four-month stint face in terms of sanctions and penalties. Are they unconditionally exempted for the asking (as they should be) or do they have to perform so-called alternative service (if so, for how long?) or do they face imprisonment? Please try to provide us with more information and more details.
