It was after four sessions that the Constitutional Court (TC) fully provided a resolution for the parole project. The court, in a divided decision, stated that it was unconstitutional in only one of the three articles that tried to challenge Chile Vamos.
In this way, a convicted perpetrator of a crime against humanity should not manifest public repentance to obtain additional prisoner benefits, as stipulated in the bill sent by Congress in November.
Although only part of the requirements of the ruling party were accepted, the bloc said it was happy with the resolution. This was shown by the UDI representative, Jaime Coloma, one of them who leads the document presentation before TC.
The Constitutional Court rejected other requirements from Chile. We are trying to challenge other requirements for access to probation: that they have served two-thirds of their sentences and cooperated in investigations. The paragraphs remain when the parliament is dispatched.
