South Korea allows conscientious objection to military service

The Supreme Court of South Korea ruled Thursday that religious beliefs and conscience must be taken into account as valid reasons for rejecting the military service call, thus canceling a previous decision of 14 years ago, reports Yonhap News Agency.

This opinion follows the decision of the South Korean Constitutional Court on June 28 to provide an alternative form of national service for conscientious objectors.
