Section 1 Parole

Parole can be granted to inmates sentenced to imprisonment with or without work after they have served the statutory term (one third of a definite imprisonment term or 10 years for life imprisonment). Parole is granted to inmates who express “genuine repentance.” More concretely, parole can be granted to inmates who are deemed to have a sense of remorse for the offense they committed and who are willing to reform and rehabilitate themselves, without any likelihood of repeating an offense, thus making it reasonable to place them under parole supervision for their own reformation and rehabilitation, with the general sentiment of society approving of that decision.
