Being single or not having children are disproportionate demands for professional soldiers

 

The Constitutional Court determined that demanding single status and the absence of children for incorporation as a professional soldier, constitutes a violation of the rights to equality and personal autonomy.This conditioning is justified by the Corporation in that although the rules studied of Decree Law 1793 of 2000 have a legitimate purpose, the legislator can not exclude certain persons because of their condition, since this constitutes a discrimination proscribed by the Constitution.
