Evaluation of the handling of requests for sentence remission

Evaluation of the handling of requests for sentence remission

Summary

Approximately 7000 applications for parole are submitted in the Netherlands every year. The new legislation means that it is possible to process applications for parole in a more rapid and effective manner, as these applications must be accompanied by specific reasons. The Research and Documentation Centre is carrying out a study into the effects of the new legislation on the processing time for applications for parole and on the nature of the decisions taken.
