23-year-old renegade of Austrian army convicted

A 23-year-old man from Austrias Western province Tirol decided that he don’t want to serve the Austrian army anymore. He escaped from the barracks and tried to hide himself. But the military police found him.

Yesterday he stood trial and was convicted to a financial penalty of 4.000 Euro. In court he explained that he prefered to get drunk at home instead of serving the Austrian army. He also confirmed that the military service was “very stressful”. Too stressful for him.

The verdict is deemed to be quite mild. Usually renegades of the Austrian army have to go to prison.

Good news for the young man: he does not need to join the army again. In January he is going to start his civilian service.
