This is an invitation for you to sign your support for the introduction of the Parole System in the Maltese islands. Parole is the conditional release of a prison inmate after serving part (if not all) of his or her sentence, allowing the inmate to live in the community under supervision of the parole period. The decision to grant parole is the responsibility, of a board of parole or commission. Violation of the conditions of parole result in revocation and re-imprisonment.

    • Parole is an opportunity for offenders to serve part of their sentence in the community. Research has shown that this a chance for offenders to rehabilitate, and if supervised and supported these people have a greater probability of leading a crime free life. I agree with parole as long as their is appropriate supervision to offenders according to the risk they present to the community.

    • I agree that parole helps offenders to rehabilitate positively in society but only if supported professionally and supervised approprietly for the safety of the community.

    • Give a chance to the people who really want and deserve a second chance. Society must learn how to forgive and reintegrate the 'sinners' who have been labelled so.

    • We hope any sentence given out is not just punitive but rehabilitative. Thus the responsibility to fine tune the mechanisms we employ as a society that values justice and the dignity of the individual.

    • I think it helps a lot for re-integrating the candidate in an efficient way, in order for him/her not to go back to the ''wrong'' steps

    • I agree with parole but only if it is controlled and applicable to prisoners who have committed non-violent offences, incuding drub abuse and petty theft. Parole could prove a beneficial system as long as it is not abused of.

    • This is a great idea. I think it will give these people hope and maybe they won't go back to a life of crime!

    • Having worked as a Probation Officer for the past 8 1/2 years i am very much in favour of prison alternatives & gradual reintegration back into society following imprisonment. however i do recommend that for a professional to qualify as a Parole Officer they are to be given specific training as we recieved to become Probation Officers.
