Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office urges Armenian Defense Ministry to look into military conscription of a kyphotic young man

The Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office urges the Armenian Defense Ministry to look into the military conscription of a young man with thoracic kyphosis. 

The statement posted on the official website of the organization says that in 2011 A.D. underwent examination at Erebuni Medical Center and was diagnosed with thoracic kyphosis (angle 66 degrees). In accordance with Article 36 of the Order No.410 of the Armenian Defense Ministry, in such cases the conscript is exempted from military service or is granted determent. A.D. was granted a three-year determent. In 2014 the young man was called up for military service with the reasoning that A.D. has an admissible kyphosis (angle 60 degrees) for the service. 

However, A.D. underwent another examination at a different medical center and was diagnosed with a 62-degree kyphosis, which makes the conscript unfit for service.    

On July 11 and 18 the young man applied to the Defense Ministry with the support of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office to revise his conscription but has received no reply yet.  

The Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Vanadzor Office has addressed a letter to Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan to revise the legality of A.D.'s conscription. In addition, the organization suggests paying much attention to this and other conscription-related cases and providing the conscripts with proper medical assistance to evade further problems.
