Parole orders to be explained to offenders

217 Parole orders to be explained to offenders

(1) On the offender's day of release from a correctional centre under a parole order, the governor must ensure that--
(a) the order is read to the offender, and
(b) the effect of the order is explained to the offender in language that is capable of being readily understood by the offender, and
(c) the offender indicates that the offender understands the terms and conditions on which the offender is to be released by signing a statement to that effect on a copy of the order, and
(d) all copies of the order are endorsed with the offender's date of release, and
(e) a copy of the order is given to the offender, and
(f) the copy of the order containing the signed statement referred to in paragraph (c) is retained at the centre.
(2) If an offender is subject to more than one parole order, this clause does not require common provisions in the orders to be read to the offender more than once.
(3) The requirements of this clause do not apply in circumstances (for example, when the offender is seriously ill) in which compliance with them would be obviously ineffectual.
