Turkey passes law allowing exemption from military service

The Turkish government has passed a new law that will allow paid exemption from the Turkish military service.

The new law, which allows anyone over the age of 30 to pay to be exempt from military service was passed by the government and will begin on December 31. The cost to pay to be exempt from military service in Turkey will cost 30,000 Turkish Liras.

There is also an option to serve for a shortened period of 21 days without age restrictions for those who have worked abroad for three years.

The income made from those who pay to be exempt from the military service will fund social services for veterans of the armed forces and the police in Turkey.

The Turkish military is one of the strongest militaries in the world. The chance for some to pay to be exempt from the military service will allow for Turkey to raise a lot of funds that can be put back to good use from those who don’t wish to serve the military service in Turkey.
