Thousands of prisoners will be released immediately after the recalculation of the period of detention under the new law. About it in interview to “Moscow Komsomolets” said the Deputy head of the FSIN Valery Maksimenko.

According to him, the innovation will affect every fifth of those currently serving a sentence in colonies. However, in most cases, it will not mean immediate release: convicted shorten. The conversion will be a matter for the courts or at the request of the prisoner, or the presentation of the institution executing punishment.

“Under the new Federal law on the part of prisoners will be simply mitigated punishment in the form of sentence reduction. While the exemption is subject, according to our preliminary estimates, about 14 thousand people”, — said Maksimenko.

A law establishing the rules of the competition held in jail convicted of days in the sentence, signed in early July. Now one day spent in prison is equivalent to one and a half days in a General regime colony and colony. Also one day in jail is equal to two days under house arrest or in prison.

The law specifies that this procedure will not apply to those convicted of particularly serious and are associated with terrorist activities offences.

Before the law for defendants in criminal cases served time in jail counted, regardless of sentence “day for day”.
