Volume 1 Issue 1 ( July - September ) 2023 OPEN ACCESS
Remission, equitable, and rational information.
The government possesses the authority to suspend or commute sentences as outlined in Section 432 of the Criminal Code. The remission should rely on precise, equitable, and rational information. Sentence remission refers to the complete termination of a sentence, albeit in a condensed form. The provisions for granting remission are outlined in Articles 72 and 161 for the President and the Governor, respectively. Instances of non-compliance with Article 21 may arise when applicants for remission experience delays in submitting their required documentation. Remission is not inherently entitled.
