Purposes of execution of imprisonment and release on licence comments to the resolution of the Supreme Court of 26 April 2017, I KZP 2/1

Subject and Keywords:

purposes of punishment   release on licence   judicial sentencing


This article brings attention not only to the need for a distinction between penalty and its functions, but also to the nature of the tasks posed before the penalty at the stage of imposing and executing the penalty. Based on the example of imprisonment, it has been proven that at the stage of execution the assigned to it objectives become limited to the completion of the reasons of the individual-preventive nature. Further part of this study also relates to the Supreme Court resolution of 26 April 2017, which accurately pointed out that while adjudicating release on licence from the rest of the sentence, criminal purposes, present at the stage of imposing the penalty referred to in chapter VI of the Criminal Code, must yield to individual-preventive reasons.
