Short Update: UK Parole Board clarifies COVID-19 prisoner early release scheme

admin - April 10, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Prisoner releases, Remote Justice

On 8 April 2020 the Parole Board published a clarification in relation to the Ministry of Justice announcement on the early release of prisoners with two months or less left on their sentence. Prisoners whose release is a Parole Board decision will not be eligible for early release under this scheme. The Parole Board is seeking to review all its cases via remote telephone/video hearings or intensive paper review to determine if someone is safe to release.
