Law on Criminal Execution: Outline
It is possible to execute the penalties to the convicts, found under General and Special Provisions of the Criminal Law by the means of Criminal Procedure Law. The Criminal Procedure Law regulates the process from the beginning of the threat of punishment to the final judgment of the court. The execution of the conviction decision given by the Criminal Court after the prosecution, in other words the execution of the judgment, is in the scope of the Law on Criminal Execution.
The Term: Execution
Criminal Execution Law is a branch of law that includes not only the finalization of the sentence and the sanctions applied, but also the measures aimed at protecting the procedure itself, such as detention during the trial.
Execution can be defined literally as the execution, application and enforcement of a judgment or a ruling. The basic principle in execution is to bring the convicts together with the punishment without leaving the principles of the taming, deterrence and rehabilitation of the sentences.
After the amendments made in 2005 to the Turkish Penal Code, considerably important amendments were made in the execution regime of the sentences with the Statutory Decree No. 671. In this context, considerable progress has been made in favour of convicts and detainees in the regulation on release on probation and probation measures.
As part of these developments, to sum up, political crimes and constitutional crimes have been excluded. In terms of crimes committed before July 1, 2016, it is thinkable to say that there are significant amendments in the ground of the execution regime.
