Improving Rehabilitation Of Prisoners
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Widowed Land
Disturbed that in penitentiary establishments, in certain nations, there is a low level of infrastructure, which causes unsanitary conditions for life.
Observes that in some nations, there's overpopulation in prisons, that usually causes mass riots, underfed, unsanitary and low control over detained people.
Acknowledges that there's some chances of unqualified people might work in prisons. These unqualified workers could overwhelm their authority and start discrimination against prisoners.
Reminds that some prisoners may rehabilitate faster than the others, and government should sanction good behavior.
Tells that penitentiary establishments should help convicts prepare themselves for future life out of the detainment.
Concerned that ex-offenders are less likely to get a job. This problem might cause massive unemployment, further a due, it arbitrarily violets individual's right to have a job.
The World Assembly hereby:
Commands that governments must fund the infrastructure in jails.
Recommends that nations that can afford to build new prisons, should act so to avoid overpopulation.
Mandates that nations which cannot afford new jails, may implement law of "split sentences", which proved to be effective in solving overpopulation in penitentiary establishments. In such cases, detained person will serve part of his/her sentence in jail, other part in house arrest.
1.) "Split sentences" will not be used on convicts, whose crimes ended up with a lethal incident.
2.) Sentence time in jail/house arrest will be decided by the judge according to the criminal case.
3.) Time ratio between jail sentence and house arrest can be reconsidered after 2 years in jail. Final verdict will be chosen by the judge.
Demands to make annual retraining of workers in prisons, to make sure only qualified candidates work there,
Mandates to let the detainee out of a prison for one day after good behavior.(For example: Cleaning kitchens, toilets, cells; Having healthy relationships with other prisoners; Having no rule broken since the arrest; Not missing therapies with psychologist). Hosting family or friend(s) of detainee will take responsibility for him/her during one day release.
1.) Prisoner will be judged by a psychologist;
2.) During three days release, convict will be reunited with the family/close friend(s);
3.) Prisoner will be under a surveillance and will be prohibited to exit the house;
4.) Only time a detainee can leave the house is for medical reasons, with escort of police;
5.) There will be no sanctioning for criminals who were detained for a murder and terrorism;
6.) Consent from the family/close friend(s) and prisoner is needed, without consent no such actions will take place.
7.) Governments must determine their own standards of good behaviour with the guidance of above mentioned examples. How extended the good behaviour must be to allow one day release, also depends on governments' choice.
Commands that prisoners must have therapies with pyschologists, preparing them for future social life.
1.) This clause does not concern either convicts with lifelong detainment, or who are sentenced to capital punishment.
2.) Extremely violent detainees who may harm or kill the psychologist will be permitted to the meetings if convict will be handicapped.
3.) Guards must standby the psychologist, during the therapy, to guarantee safety.
Bans the rejection of a candidate for an open job, based solely on their criminal background.
1.) Exceptions can be made, if ex-convict is applying for a job, which can directly be linked to his/her alleged crime. (for example: If ex-offender was detained because of child abuse, employer might deny job in Kindergarten/School)
Encourages government to fund media campaigns, which will serve purpose of spreading information that will reassure employers/population that ex-convicts are capable of holding job posts productively.
This is the discussion thread.
Voting will be opened when it reaches queue
