Mutsuz Turkish Nationality

Hello dear lawyers,

I'm Australian born with a Turkish born father. I'm thinking of applying for Turkish citizenship, but don't wish to do army service. I'm 23 and would just like to do a PhD there and vacation in summers.

Question: I read in a Turkish paper about a new law that indicates those applying for citizenship from abroad and who are 22 or older, will NO longer require to serve the army. Is this true & is this law in effect? That information was written in an article in Today's Zaman by a Turkish lawyer. When I asked if it was true, he said "consult a lawyer", which he is, so not sure why he could not say 'yes', or 'no'.

Thank you in advance for your time & free help.
