Re: Ticino Laws translated into EN

View Post
I opened this Topic for people who have started to learn the Italian language in Ticino. It is topic is not for whom study law. I opened the topic in the Language corner, but a moderator the thread moved. It is changed completely and transformed the meaning of my topic.
A) your thread was moved by the moderator you refer to due its being political, historical and legal questions raised.

B) you also refer to
What are your military duties?
The Swiss males are obligated to military service, under certain conditions can can they do an alternative civilian service, military service for women is voluntary. Whoever does not pay
the compulsory military or civil service charges must pay a fee.

First to come to the civil service as an alternative to "real" military service. Civil Service takes longer than the normal one, and there still are lots of regulations in power in order to discourage/prevent people from switching to Civil Service.

Second, the length of the service has come down. So that I can only give you a short idea about what I had
> basic military service (RS) = 4 months
> after that, each year 3 weeks plus 3 days for about 12 years
> after that, for about a decade, one week each 2nd year
--- there would be "civil service" for a few additional years, but it is relatively easy to avoid that stuff
>> in my case it nevertheless amounted to some 400 days of military service

Re: Ticino Laws translated into EN

Englishforum.ch is for English-speakers to discuss life in Switzerland. If the OP wants a translation of copious Italian legal texts, there are other channels available. If s/he wants to practice English online, jrspet kindly provided links earlier in this thread. If s/he wants to join in the conversation on other threads in EF, or wants to start a new one, s/he is welcome to do so (in intelligible English, please!)

But most of the opening page of posts in this thread don't belong on EF. Thread closed.
This user would like to thank for this useful post:
