CCR: Law on the execution of sentences – constitutional. Detainees living in inhuman conditions receive 6 days per month penalty reduction

11

The Constitutional Court has rejected on Wednesday, by majority vote, the objection of unconstitutionality filed in May by 51 PNL and USR deputies on the draft amendment bill to the Law on the execution of sentences, considering that the normative act is constitutional.

On Wednesday CCR discussed the objection of unconstitutionality of the provisions of the bill amending and supplementing Law no.254/2013 on the execution of sentences and detention measures ordered by the judicial bodies during the criminal trial, objection filed by 51 deputies belonging to the PNL and USR parliamentary groups.

The petition argued that this law was fundamentally altered by the Chamber of Deputies through a series of 43 amendments that were not discussed at all by the Senate.

“In concrete terms, the project establishes the possibility to buy days of freedom, which is immoral and dangerous,” the signatories note.

The signatories also consider that it is “excessive” to increase the benefit in days considered to be executed, up from 20% to 25% for paid work, up from 25% to 33% for unpaid work and up from 33% to 50% for work during the night.

The Chamber of Deputies has recently adopted, as decisional body, the law on execution of sentences, which provides for a reduction of 6 days per month penalty reduction for living in inhuman conditions, but also that inmates can ‘buy’ free days for remuneration.
