How to avoid the army?

Postby Pale » Sat Mar 26, 2011 9:34 pm

I will be going to the army next year supposedly. My father is not from cyprus, my mother is cypriot/british and so am I. I am maronite. The say I have to go to the army for 6 months but I don't want to waste 6 months there if I can avoid it. I will be leaving abroad for studies and I could use that time more usefully.

Please, please tell me what ways there are that I can avoid the army.

Thank you.

Isn't it the case that Maronites are excused from duty????

Tell us where you were born, where you father was born, where your grandfather was born.

I've been told that even as maronite I have to do and I did a search on wikipedia and found that it was no longer optional for maronites since 2007.

My father was born in Lebanon, my grandfather too. My mother was born in England, her parents from Cyprus.

Obligation to serve goes through the male line only, up to grandfather, you don't have a Cy father or a Cy grandfather... and your mother's nationality isn't important... so on the answers, don't see why you should be obliged to serve.

One last question from moi... do you have CY citizenship???

Yes I have Cyprus citizenship and British. On my ID my nationality is Cyprus/British.

I've talked to people who know about these things and are connected to the army in some way, also the minister of defense and although we have told them all this information they insist I have to go. I really hope you're right and I can get myself out of this.

Thank you so much for your time.

I take offence that you’re trying to dodge your military obligation at the expense of your occupied country, enslaved compatriots, and those who have already served the nation! :evil:

Being a citizen in a country is not only about claiming your rights but meeting your obligations, so grow up and start acting like a man!

Obligations are only obligations when they are rigorously tested against requirements in Actual Law. Would be a funny state of affairs if it were otherwise.

Here we go Pale, ...

Have a look at what the Law of The Republic says about whether you are obliged to serve...
