Switzerland: Amnesty International urges the immediate release of conscientious objector Marino Keckeis

Marino Keckeis, a 24-year-old qualified forestry worker, has been serving a five-month sentence in Grosshof Prison, Kriens (Canton of Lucerne), since 15 January 2002 for refusing to perform compulsory military service. Amnesty International (AI) believes his refusal of military service is the result of his conscientiously-held, ethical and religious convictions, and considers him to be a prisoner of conscience who should be released immediately.
