'Conscientious objection to military service is a human right. Contrary to international obligations, currently over 250 young people are imprisoned for refusing military service in the Republic of Korea.

I am writing to urge your government to immediately release them, and stop imprisoning those who refuse military service in the future.

Thank you.
