Conscientious objection bill proposed in Turkey

A bill has been proposed to permit conscientious objection in Turkey. Details here. It would cover both conscription objectors and in-service objectors.
"The draft law would also provide the persons in question an opportunity to work for any public institutions, NGOs or other organizations working in the public interest instead of military service. They would be paid, covered by social security and would not be discriminated, according to the proposal."
