In a 10 September 2008 telephone interview, a representative of the Tunisian Consulate in Montréal reiterated the information provided in a previous telephone interview on 18 September 2006 regarding the penalties for refusing to perform military service; that is, that there are no absolute answers and that decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Additional information on the penalties incurred by a Tunisian citizen who has not performed military service in the past and who has now passed the age of mandatory military service could not be found among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim for refugee protection. Please find below the list of sources consulted in researching this Information Request.
