New ‘three strikes’ rule passed for career soldiers

Career soldiers who accumulate three major demerits in one year will be expelled from the military. That's according to an amendment to a statute governing the country's enlisted personnel which passed the legislature on Friday.

The amendment is part of government plans to improve the way personnel are evaluated.

Democratic Progressive Party lawmaker Wang Ding-yu said the amendment offers the military a better legal framework to kick out personnel who fail to meet the standards expected of them.
