1. Partial statement of the defendant;
1. A written accusation;
1. Application of statutes governing receipt of written notice of enlistment;
1. As to the Defendant’s assertion on criminal facts under Article 88(1)1 of the pertinent Act, the Defendant asserts to the effect that “justifiable cause” under Article 88(1) of the Military Service Act exists, since the Defendant, as the B church believers, refused military service according to the religious conscience guaranteed by the Constitution.
The above argument by the defendant does not constitute justifiable grounds under the interpretation of the current Constitution and the Military Service Act (see, e.g., Supreme Court en banc Decision 2004Do2965, Jul. 15, 2004). Thus, the above argument cannot be accepted.
It is so decided as per Disposition for the above reasons.
