Special Time Allowance For Loyalty

Special Time Allowance for Loyalty

ART. 98

NOTES:

The article applies only to prisoners who escaped.

There is a deduction of 1/5 of the period of sentence of prisoner who, having evaded the service of his sentence during the calamity or catastrophe mentioned in Art 158, gives himself up to the authorities within 48 hours following the issuance of the proclamation by the President announcing the passing away of the calamity or catastrophe.

The deduction is based on the original sentence and not on the unexpired portion.

Art 158 provides for increased penalties:

A convict who has evaded the service of his sentence by leaving the penal institution on the occasion of disorder resulting from conflagration, earthquake or similar catastrophe or during mutiny in which he did not participate is liable to an increased penalty (1/5 of the time still remaining to be served – not to exceed 6 months), if he fails to give himself up to the authorities within 48 hours following the issuance of a proclamation by the President announcing the passing away of
the calamity.


ART. 99: WHO GRANTS TIME ALLOWANCES

NOTES:

The authority to grant time allowance for good conduct is exclusively vested in the Director. (e.g. provincial warden cannot usurp Director’s authority)

It is not an automatic right, and once granted, cannot be revoked by him.
