conscription exists

According to some sources, Gabon had conscription in the 1980s. [1] [2] [3]

The 6 December 1960 Law-Decree nr. 4 (published in Journal Officiel de la République du Gabon, 1 January 1961) has created the national armed forces and instituted compulsory military service. [2]

A 1997 UN report states that there is no conscription.
