    I don't think you can expect him to serve any form of NS. Too old.
    The fine that is mandated is the maximum for the offence. Anyone can clarify?

    If Singapore were to jail the person, how do you think it will play out in the international arena?
    I can see the foreign news headlines now.

    I don't think it's fair he paid only $5k but I don't think it's that appropriate for him to serve NS.
    The law should be amended to put in a heftier fine, more like $50k to $100k, since parents have to post a $75k bond for their children if the children should go overseas.

    If they can afford to go overseas, $5k doesn't really hurt.
    Some people wouldn't mind paying $5k to get out of 10 cycles of reservist much less National Service.

    Revoke their citizenship is a better option, since they do not wan to serve their country.
    Let them move to other countries & be a 2nd/3rd class citizens.
    den distribute those fines & give us reservist a share of it!

    Maybe for every one year of AWOL they will be fined $50K. So, if the offender AWOL for 20 years, it would amount to $1 million.

    Well said. If only 5k, will only encourage others to follow his method to avoid NS.
