The defence ministry issued a reminder to reservists who have not reported for duty to do so by the end of the month or face sanctions.

The announcement concerns those who failed to report for reservist duty between 1989 to 2019 (born between 1971 to 2001) and those whose reasons for the temporary suspension of their service were no longer valid.

Those who do not have in their possession a summons for the year 2021 or have not updated the document asking them to report for duty, should also appear by April 30, the ministry added.

When they arrive at the recruitment departments, they must also have their identity card or passport or any other official document of the Republic, and the summons. In case of change of residence, they must bring proof of their new address (utility bill).

Reservists who have been discharged are exempted.

Those who fail to comply by the end of April could face a fine of up to €2,000 and or up to one year in prison.
