I finally got to thinking it over and am seriously considering defaulting on national service and heading over to the states. Only, what would the US officials be inclined to do if they do happen to find out that I bailed on national service? Would they have to deport me?
What status can I claim as a conscious objector? I read the universal declaration of human rights article 4 (regarding servitude), article 14 on (everyone having rights to asylum from persecution-of Males in Singapore through conscription) and finally article 2, which says there should be no distinction made on the basis of international status of a country or a territory to which a person belongs to. Please advice.
Dear Erik .......,
Thanks for your Email. Unfortunately avoidance of National Service is not a reason for asylum. However there are many other reasons you can use to get asylum from Singapore. When you reach the United States, please contact me.
