“Report on Violations of Conscripts’ Rights during the Conscriptions in 2016-2017”
December 25, 12:00

The most urgent issue for conscripts involves the health issues and medical conclusions during conscriptions. In 2016-2017, 50 out of 59 applications filed by the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly-Vanadzor Office referred to the health issues of conscripts. 

Armine Sadikyan, Coordinator of Peace Building Projects of HCA Vandzor, says that like the previous year, this year also most of the applications referred to that issue when the citizens disagreed with the conclusions of the medical committee on their health.

“The law provides for a comprehensive medical examination but it does not apply to all conscripts, medical conclusions are controversial by various medical institutions. And the central medical institution is based on the data that is in the disadvantage of a conscript. Instead of sending the conclusion to the 3rd medical institution to deny or approve, a decision is immediately made,” Armine Sadikyan said during the press conference at Media Center on December 25.
