2 Revocation of suspension of execution of sentence
Table 3-5-2-2 shows the number of offenders whose suspension of execution of sentence was revoked by reason, over the last five years.
In 2005, 7,553 offenders had their suspension of execution of sentence revoked, and an overwhelming majority of the 7,080 (93.7%) were revoked for new convictions of imprisonment for a repeat offense.
Since the persons who were granted suspension of execution of sentence in a given year and those whose suspension of execution of sentence was revoked in that year are of two different target groups, it is not possible to calculate the revocation rate in a strict sense. However, by finding out the percentage of the latter compared to the former, it is possible to observe a rough trend of revocation of suspension of execution of sentence for that year.
In 2005, the percentage of those who had their suspension of execution of sentence revoked against the total number of those granted suspensions (D/A %) was 13.7%. By type of offense (limited to offenses for which 100 persons or more had been granted suspension of execution of sentence, hereinafter the same in this section), Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Act violations were the highest with 43.4%, followed by Stimulants Control Act violations with 24.9%, and theft with 22.5%. The percentage of revocation due to a new conviction of imprisonment for those under probationary supervision (F/C %) was 29.6%. By type of offense, Stimulants Control Act violations were the highest with 36.3%, followed by theft with 34.1%, and injury with 29.4% (Source: Annual Report of Statistics on Prosecution).
