2 Execution of sentence

Juvenile inmates are mainly accommodated in juvenile prisons and serve their sentences separately from adults in specially segregated areas. However, amendment of the Juvenile Act in 2000 enabled juveniles younger than 16 sentenced to imprisonment with or without work to serve their sentences at juvenile training schools until reaching 16 (no one, however, had been subject to this provision up to the end of 2009).

The formulation of treatment guidelines for juvenile inmates involves goals for individual stages that are divided into an introduction, development, and generalization, which are then reflected in implementing work, reformation guidance, and academic education, etc. If the juveniles are serving their sentences in juvenile training schools, they are not subject to work and instead receiving correctional education.
