Slovak Republic: Possible prisoner of conscience: Milos Lipinsky

On 26 August 1993, Milos Lipinsky received his call-up papers from the District Military Administration ordering him to start military service on 5 October. Milos Lipinsky returned the call-up papers with a statement saying that he refused to start military service on grounds of his religious beliefs. Amnesty International is concerned that Milos Lipinsky has been sentenced to 14 months’ imprisonment for having refused to carry out military service, and fears that this sentence may be carried out in which case it would consider Milos Lipinsky to be a prisoner of conscience and ask for his immediate and unconditional release.
