From the Associated Press :
Serbia and Montenegro’s army has filed charges against former NBA star Vlade Divac for evading the military draft.
Divac, 37, was obliged by the law to join the compulsory six-month military service by the age of 35, the state prosecutors’ office said Wednesday.
It asked Serbia and Montenegro’s foreign ministry “to determine Divac’s citizenship and his home address” to be able to carry out the legal proceedings and hand him the draft notice.
I’m not sure which is more depressing ; that Serbia and Montenegro are desperate for the military services of a 37 year old with a a bad back, or that said country’s military strategy apparently involves a lot of flopping.
