Editorial: Society benefits from early release

Amsterdam, 5 juni 2014  - Today, an editorial about the advantages of the conditional release-scheme as it is currently regulated in the Netherlands, was published in the newspaper Nederlands Dagblad. Earlier this year there was a fuss about the scheme when it became known that Volkert van der G. was eliglibe for it.  Subsequently, on 27 March, the State Secretary for Justice Teeven announced that he would have the scheme examined.

The editorial was written bij Jacques Claessen, Tamara Buruma en Alrik de Haas, members of the foundation Mens en Strafrecht (for a Humane Criminal Justice System).
