In Czech Republic, there was a huge DFs around 1996, when the branch got new light regarding alternative military service. Back then, in drafted armed forces of the country, the alternative was prison, coal mines, or alternative service (mostly in hospice or old folk homes). Initially, WT supported alternative service between 1989 and 1996, but when the flip-flop doctrine was implemented, massive DFs was implemented across many KH in the Czech Republic. I left WT several years prior that, but in 1996-1997 up to 8% of males were DFs on spot for refusing to leave already performing alternative service. Violation would mean prison and criminal record. It still baffled me, why some of the men returned into WT after all these BS they went through, having their personal life destroyed by flip-flop doctrine, and having permanent criminal record.
