§ 2. Conditional stay of execution of punishment and is conditional-parole from enduring the punishment.

Norms about conditional stay of execution of punishment and it is conditional-parole from enduring the punishment, contain in a separate part V «criminal action and punishment Repayment», the chapter II «punishment Repayment» UK Somalia (item 150 item, 151).

The name conditional stay of execution of punishment reflects the legal nature of this measure, as kind of clearing of punishment. Conditional stay of execution of punishment, more successful name of the given security measure in comparison with "probation" in Russia. In any country condemnation of the person on behalf of the state not conditional, but real.

On the basis, the maintenance and the application purposes conditional stay of execution of punishment (further conditional punishment) is the independent form of realisation of the criminal liability concerning the persons who have made punishable act, called to promote decrease in application of imprisonment. It now one of the crime control directions, reflected in the Minimum standard rules of the Organization of the Incorporated nations concerning the measures which have been not connected with imprisonment (from December, 14th, 1990) Rules recommend the Tokyo rules as the measures alternative to imprisonment, conditional release from responsibility, conditional punishment or punishment with a delay, conditional release from the conclusion and judicial supervision, any other kind which has been not connected with imprisonment; their any combination.

In the legislation of the countries of the world conditional non-use of punishment has different names and a regulation in the law. In UK the Russian Federation similar norms (the item of item 73,74 UK the Russian Federations) contain in chapter 10 "Awarding punishment" and are called "probation" and in chapter 12 «Clearing from

Punishments »with the name« an enduring the punishment delay »(the item item 82,82і UK the Russian Federation). It is the habitual term for criminal law of Russia which did not begin to change and at acceptance of the last UK the Russian Federation and in the course of its constant perfection. As a matter of fact, condemnation cannot be conditional. The court pronounces a real sentence and establishes in it real restrictions of the rights and freedom for the guilty person.

In the theory of criminal law conditional punishment can be carried to forms of realisation of the criminal liability [163]. It corresponds resulted in the first paragraph of the present research to definition, has the big similarity to punishment, but does not contain in the list of punishments, hence, in sanctions of articles of the Special part of the criminal law.

UK Somalia supposes conditional punishment application only in case of awarding punishment in the form of imprisonment or forfeiture.

The essence of conditional stay of execution of punishment consists that the same judgement with which the person is sentenced by court to established in the sanction of corresponding article UK Somalia to a punishment under criminal law measure, passes the decision on stay of execution of this punishment for certain term and on certain conditions. In the Criminal code of Somalia contains special norms (item 110 item, 150 UK Somalia), regulating the legal maintenance of conditional punishment: the basis of its application, criteria, conditions and consequences.

The basis of application of conditional punishment is the belief of court that the person in the future will not make penal act. Its criteria: the person is not recognised by the recidivist; the punishment appointed to it in

Imprisonment kind for certain term, does not exceed six months, or this punishment in the form of the penalty, or both that and another; and monetary punishment can be replaced by imprisonment with the same period the judge enacts to consider the appointed punishment conditional. In other words, the court stops execution of sentence regarding the punishment appointed it and, at the same time, as though replaces with its other, not being punishment, but during too time possessing own maintenance both retaliatory, and corrective property.

Condemned to conditional punishment following conditions are laid down: not to make within five years from the date of adjudgment of kindred offences or offences; during time ordered by the judge to carry out of any civil obligation; with a view of the restitution or pays indemnification to the affected party (ch. 2 items 150 UK Somalia).

According to UPK (item 128) the court can oblige Somalia condemned to conditional punishment: to be arranged on a permanent job; to pass necessary medical or psychiatric treatment; to abstain from visiting of certain places and dialogue with certain persons; to deprive for a trial period of the right of possession or carrying of fire-arms or other dangerous weapon.

The listed conditions form the maintenance of conditional stay of execution of punishment, as independent form of realisation of the criminal liability. It also is its retaliatory element connected with the state compulsion.

Trial period at conditional punishment - till five years.

At decision-making on conditional punishment the judge should be convinced available the basis and all criteria necessary for application of the given form of realisation of the criminal liability. The judicial discretion about omittance by the person in a trial period at conditional punishment of new penal act serves the personal characteristic of the guilty.

If the person in test satisfies the conditions set forth above (karatelno-corrective elements of conditional punishment) initially appointed punishment is not executed, and it is automatically released from all consequences connected with perfect it by act, that is they are repaid. [164]

Conditional punishment takes place and in cases of conditionally-parole of the person from imprisonment partially left by it. In Somalia is conditional-preschedule clearing is possible, both at imprisonment for certain term, and at lifelong imprisonment.

The basis of is conditional-preschedule clearing is the belief of court that the person the behaviour has proved aspiration not to violate the law, and will not commit a new crime, having been free remained not left a penal term part at imprisonment serving for certain term.

One of criteria of such clearing are served by departure of the statutory penal term. So, according to item 151 UK Somalia to the person to whom imprisonment is appointed to certain term - not less than half of appointed term; to the person who is the recidivist - not less than three quarters of term of the appointed punishment, to the person, leaving lifelong imprisonment is necessary to leave twenty five years. As other criterion of is conditional-preschedule clearing of enduring the punishment the behaviour of the person in stay in isolation places, display of an active vital position (item 176 UK Somalia) serves.

Is conditional-preschedule clearing is applied to persons who have been sentenced to imprisonment and have already left an imprisonment term part. It is the award for those prisoners who have proved from a positive side of good behaviour during punishment departure in prison and which, in such image, mitigation of punishment deserve.

Is conditional-preschedule clearing of punishment on UK Somalia as well in Italy can be applied to the persons who are really serving time in the form of imprisonment, it cannot be applied to persons by whom conditional punishment is initially appointed. [165]

At is conditional-preschedule clearing of imprisonment serving for certain term to the person the trial period is not established, it is simply equal to term of the remained not left part of imprisonment, therefore its duration is various and depends on term of the appointed punishment. The trial period is estimated from the date of is conditional-preschedule clearing. Conditionally-ahead of schedule released the same conditions are laid down, as at conditional stay the punishment which list contains in item 151 UK Somalia, and item 128 UPK Somalia have been presented above.

By the criminal legislation of Somalia probably and unconditional parole of the person from serving of the remained not left part of punishment. Unconditional parole of the person from enduring the punishment is provided item 57 of the Law on prisons of Somalia. Given article establishes the general order of preschedule unconditional clearing after departure the condemned 1/4 part of term. Unconditional clearing can be applied for assiduous work and good behaviour condemned in the places of confinement. To unconditional parole in conformity to the Law on prisons comes under only concluded, condemned for the term up to 10 years of imprisonment. In case of condemnation for longer term clearing can be only is conditional-preschedule if the person leaving imprisonment has not been condemned for murder or crimes against state security and a public order (item 61 of the Law on prisons of Somalia).

Some African states which have tested influence of Anglo-Saxon legal system, specify the similar norm regulating cases in point in the criminal legislation. The criminal legislation of these countries provides conditional and unconditional clearing.

According to item 35 UK of Kenya if at court the belief about inexpediency of real serving is generated by the person of imprisonment, and taking into account circumstances of business, character and danger of perfect act and the data characterising the person of the offender it having appointed such person punishment can take out the decision about absolute clearing of its serving. The court can solve a question on parole of the person from the punishment appointed it, having defined obligatory term of departure of its part. This term should not exceed twelve months from the date of the instruction.

Similar positions are provided and in item 41 UK of Zambia and item 38 UK of Tanzania.

It is remarkable, that criminally-rule of law, regulating the basis, criteria, conditions and an order of conditional release from punishment contain in some countries of Africa item 353 UPK of Ghana, item 435 UPK of Nigeria, and item 705 UPK of Senegal contain not in Criminal, and in the Code of Criminal Procedure, for example.

It is necessary to notice, that to the criminal legislation, the doctrine and judiciary practice, other developing countries generated under the influence of the continental legal system, the institute of conditional release from punishment is unknown. Such countries concern this group, as Djibouti of item 105 and the item of item 126-130 UK, Ruanda of the item of item 85-87 UK, Egypt of the item of item 55-58 UK, etc.

Unlike UK Italy, probation institutes, and conditionally - parole are insufficiently regulated in the criminal code of Somalia. Some questions, such as probation cancellation, a circle of subjects in which relation application of probation is possible, etc. has found the reflexion in variety isolated acts.

In the Italian Criminal code there is a position about cancellation of conditional parole (item 177 UK of Italy). In the criminal code of Somalia such article is absent. UK Italy are contained now by institute of conditional release from enduring the punishment, but in it there are no positions concerning conditions of such clearing and its consequences. [166] however, ch. 2 items 253 of the Criminal code of practice of Somalia say, that cancellation of conditional parole will be made same by, as well as probation cancellation, (ch. 2 items 150 UK Somalia), similar position contain and in ch. 2 items 127 Ugolovnoprotsessualnogo of the code of Somalia. There it is told: « Conditional stay of execution of punishment should be cancelled automatically if condemned within 5th years from the date of sentence declaration commits a crime, or infringement of the same sort for which it has been condemned, or does not carry out in time, established by court of any of civil-law obligations in relation to the sustained person following of criminal action ».

Thus, UPK simply reproduces the position provided in ch. 2 items 150 UK, thereby both codes regulate the questions, cancellations of probation concerning conditions and clearing. [167]

It is clear, that the persons conditionally-ahead of schedule released from punishment, prove the correction by the subsequent behaviour. In case in the specified term, condemned commits a new crime, court according to item 151 UK Somalia and, item 157 UPK, and item 57 of the Law on prisons, takes out the decision about its cancellation.

However it is necessary to underline, that in these norms there are no instructions concerning by what rules the court awards punishment for again committed crime. We consider necessary that in these norms were following position is reflected: «the court cancels is conditional-preschedule clearing and enacts about execution of the remained not left part of punishment, appoints to the person punishment by the rules provided by item 128 UK Somalia,« Awarding punishment under cumulative offences ». For example, as it is fixed in ch. 7 letter in" item 97 UK the Russian Federation.

Legislation Somalilend and in region Puntlend in essence independently operate the affairs, including through own Constitutions and laws. However and there there is no the complex act regulating the relations c by persons by probationeers and ahead of schedule released from punishment. As well as at federal level these positions, can be found in isolated codes and certificates.

F. M.Reshetnikov noticed, that specificity of conditions of crime control in developing countries is connected by that many measures of criminal reprisal used in the West, here often appear absolutely inefficient. For example, threat undergo to imprisonment can to be interpreted the people deprived of a constant residence and any means of subsistence as only possibility to find a shelter over a head, to receive the minimum livelihood and in general to appear «on the state maintenance». On the other hand, such liberal measure as probation under supervision, or «freedom under supervision», cannot effectively be used in the countries where the population great bulk is disseminated on rare villages or leads a nomadic way of life. [168]

We believe, that conditional punishment - the perspective form of realisation of the criminal liability, capable to be alternative to imprisonment. It is necessary to notice, that despite conditional punishment positive sides as alternatives to imprisonment, in practice of vessels of Somalia the given form of realisation of the criminal liability is applied rather seldom. Conditional punishment as the independent form of realisation of the criminal liability, in our opinion, is quite justified in cases of condemnation of the person for the first time and its sincere repentance in sodejannom. It, in our opinion, can effectively replace imprisonment especially with short term. It is necessary to develop the list of conditions which can be put in the face of in a trial period so that at their performance the person felt on itself essential restriction of its rights and freedom, indemnified the loss caused by its act and benefited a society. Such list, most likely, will be approximate, the life will prompt, what duties should be assigned to the guilty.

And the last, but not less important: the criminal liability at its realisation in conditional punishment, from enduring the punishment can come to an end and specific performance of the punishment appointed to the person, or remained its not left part in cases of default with the person put to it court of conditions.

Is quite often conditional-preschedule clearing is applied on the basis of the certificate of the pardon published by the president on the occasion of any national holiday. It is necessary to note one more important point - both conditional stay of execution of punishment and conditional release lead to cancellation of punishments. The same and for rehabilitation. The truth rehabilitation is not conditional, in true sense of this word.

It is possible to tell about efficiency of application of conditional punishment the following: Somalias, were outlined tendencies to reduction of the bases of probation and to narrowing of sphere of application of this institute. It is connected, first, with political instability in the country, and as consequence, proceeding growth of criminality. Secondly, now appeals are distributed more widely to apply imprisonment than probation, and parole. Further, among Somalis there is an opinion, that the criminal should be imprisoned. It has led to considerable increase of quantity of negatively adjusted citizens in relation to offenders, and also promoted decrease in level of trust to law enforcement bodies. They are inclined to consider, that struggle against criminality can be led only repressive methods. And at last, in - the third, courts should reckon with moods of the people and by that try to restore the lost trust. Norms of Sheriyat do not contain positions about conditional punishment and parole, it the measures replacing one punishment by another are closer.

Taking into account told in Somalia it is necessary to pay attention to improvement of a condition of prisons. According to one of representatives of the supreme bodies of the power of the place of confinement are in an awful condition. G osudarstvennyj the public prosecutor of Somalia Ahmed Ali Dahir has declared, that in prisons there are the various problems, concerning lives of prisoners and access to medical aid, on what the prisoner has the right. Further he has characterised a condition of prisons in the country the following: «We can define prisons as places where people pytajut, prisoners have no access to public health services services, frequently elementary absence of a bedroom and even an inadequate food». [169]

Let's notice, that the inhumane reference with prisoners, breaks not only the national law, but also norms of international law.

We consider, that at fulfilment of the crimes which are not heavy, the Somali courts could be limited to application of conditional stay of execution of punishment. Especially when it is obvious, that educational influence on condemned can be reached by application of this form of realisation of the criminal liability, allowing to limit the rights and freedom condemned by putting on of interdictions. It is necessary to develop system of such interdictions conditionally punished taking into account features of their person and recommendations of psychologists.
