Parole Council is reported to have received 283 appeals for pardon or change of measure of punishment. Nevertheless, only 32 are subject to consideration. Let us remind you that the new Confinement Code cancelled Parole Commission. Instead, three Parole Councils have been established - in East Georgia, West Georgia and Juvenile Council.
Every three months, members of the council talk to prisoners in the course of their meetings and then pass verdicts on releasing them on parole or changing the measure of punishment.
The council comprises officials of the Ministry of Probation, Execution of Sentences and Legal Assistance, National Probation Agency, local NGOs, Supreme Council of Justice and representatives of local public authorities. All the decisions taken by Parole Commission are final and do not require the court's approval.
