I am a student from Singapore planning to study in USA and while googling on extradition by the USA, I chance upon your blog. I am also never a supporter of PAP for various reasons. (Mainly I believe a roles in government cannot be dynastic)

I have a question to ask and hope you will help me. I am also studying law(both civil and criminal) on my own as an interest.

Firstly I am a conscientious objector/pacifist and I do not wish to serve the army and plan to continue my university studies in USA without serving the army. I plan to be a scientist in future possibly forever in the USA.

I would like to know if I would be extradite back to Singapore from USA if I failed to enlist?

Also if I failed to enlist am I breaking the military law or does Singapore classified military law under criminal law?


Best regards,
