Males born after 1994 to be exempt from military service: MND

Taipei, Dec. 30 (CNA) Males born after Jan. 1, 1994 are to be exempted from the current one-year compulsory military service, but should undergo a mandatory four-month military training period upon reaching conscription age, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said Friday. MND spokesman Luo Shou-he said the four-month military training system will be implemented in 2013 when the country's military service system will change from compulsory to fully voluntary enlistment. The new measure is part of a package of amendments to the Act of Military Service System passed by the Legislative Yuan Dec. 13, Luo said.
