PDF (Parole Board annual report 2020) - Published Version

A total of 75 prisoners were referred to the Parole Board for review during 2020. All were invited to participate in the process (see Table 1). Overall, 47 accepted the invitation while 14 declined and 14 invitations had not been responded to at the time of this report being prepared. Of the 14 who declined, 11 are serving determinate sentences and of the 14 who did not respond to the invitation to participate, 13 were serving determinate sentences. Prisoners on determinate sentences are automatically entitled to 25 per cent remission and can apply for 33 per cent remission. This may explain why some of them choose not to engage with the Parole Board (see Table 2 and Appendix 2). A breakdown of the kinds of cases dealt with is given in Table 3 and the trend is shown in Appendix 3
