    Belgian child molester and murderer wants early release after 16 years.

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/marc-dutrou...192457848.html

    This is a major issue at this moment in Belgium. Marc Dutroux is one of the biggest criminals in recent Belgian history. He abducted, abused and tortured 6 children between 1995 and 1996 and murdered 4 of them, and had 5 more earlier abductions and rapes on his record. he is currently serving a life sentence in a highsec prison, and has to be available to the government for another 10 years (dutch term is "zich ter beschikking stellen").

    the problem is that this "monster of Charleroi", as the media calls him, has asked for early release and monitoring through an electronic ankle bracelet, after only 16 years imprisonment. every single doctor who has examined him calls this man a "core psychopath", someone who had extreme risk of relapse into his old habits and has no remorse, no feelings and no compassion.

    You can probably understand that this is a giant shitstorm here in Belgium. I mean, the government has actually reformed the justice system because of him back in 1992, when he got released after 3 years of a 13 year imprisonment for the 5 abductions and rapes. they're working on a second reform because his wife was released on probation last year through the same law that was reformed for Dutroux. this man managed to escape during his first trial, which caused the Belgian secretary of justice to resign from his post. Dutroux is actually using the same law he caused the reform of in his request to be released.

    so what's your opinion on this? I doubt anyone here would actually advocate releasing him. hell, even his lawyers think he should stay in jail.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    What is the chance that they are going to let him out then? He can want his early release like nothing else - doesn't mean he should get it.

    I have to say that I don't know the first thing about the Belgium justice system, but this seems way more complicated than it should be. If he is "requesting" release, why can't it just be denied without any fuss?

    The Doctors say he is showing no remorse, he still has time to serve, force him to serve it out I say. Early release should be for the rehabilitated, this guy doesnt sound like he is.

    probably much the same as ours in this respect - we all know charles manson will NEVER be paroled, but they have to give the process due diligence anyway

    Need more information on Belgian justice system. I'm sure his request can and should be turned down.

    Citizens of Belgium, take control... take control of your country.
    As a citizen of Belgium I say do what's moraly is right to do, I do not care what the media says, while he was a monster by any stretch of the imagination, I do despise that some criminals get an easier time thene others simple because they make a better story.

    But as I said, not going to defend him, he's undefendable.
    If he has the right to ask this, let him ask, that said ,he's staying put, he's not getting out.

    he's locked in there FOREEEEEEVER.

    I dont understand how he can just "request" to be let free? what would be the point of a sentence if people could just ask to leave?

    Surely there is something more to this.

    You may be right. Perhaps I read the OP with a different mindset than was intended but it seemed to be implied that there is a possibly (no matter how remote) that the request may be granted.

    He deserves nothing and should be ignored.

    Most countries allow you to apply for parole, does not mean he will get it.

    yeah, but remember that the media likes to ham things up. as per my example, manson's last parole hearing raised a shitstorm, with media acting as though there was actually a chance he would get it

    Once a certain % of your sentence is done, you can request that, I think, I'm not sure.
    They'll judge if you've changed/show regret/are ready to enter the world again, and release you if they rule you're ready.

    I though Belgium Justice System followed the principle of irretroactivity of law.

    What about making/reforming laws to suit specific individuals?

    Under Belgian law, criminals can be freed after serving a third of their sentences, or after 15 years in the case of those who have received life, a perpetual sentence in Belgium.
    From the link above. Though, that's pretty much bull, aren't there any rules regarding obviously dangerous peoples custody? Like, having experts evaluate them before they get a chance to get out? I mean, knowing they let him run once it'd be very unwise to release him again, cause it'd be very likely something terrible will happen again.

    Is he able to be kept passed his 16 years if he is not deemed safe for the public? A 16 year sentence seems pretty small for 4 murders to begin with.

    I doubt he will be let free, although he did get out 10 years early for his first set of charges.

    Not must.
