Consultation on parole 20/12/2018 Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf has launched a consultation on Transforming Parole in Scotland

Consultation on parole

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf has launched a consultation on Transforming Parole in Scotland, proposing that victims and their families should be given information on the parole process at the earliest opportunity and that they should be able to make representations to the parole board.

The consultation also seeks a broad range of views on:

  • increased transparency about decisions;
  • streamlining the process by which the Parole Board receive information needed to make decisions;
  • changes to the supervision and recall of individuals;
  • whether greater consideration of exclusion zones is required, where parolees are restricted from entering certain areas or approaching named individuals; and
  • proposals to strengthen the independence, and governance and accountability arrangements of the Parole Board for Scotland.

The consultation will run until 27th March 2019.

It can be found here.
