Extension and Limits of Judiciary Control

In addition to an important role in the adjustment of the sentences, the code of penal procedure – and now the 2009 penal law – has given the judicial authority a mission of control over the penitentiary establishments. Yet, while the magistrates concerned are clearly identified, the ways of exercising their control and the scope of this control remain imprecise. This is the main reason why today, as was the case yesterday, the judiciary control of prisons is not producing all its desired effects. It can undoubtedly be improved. The instauration of an outside control (the General Inspector of penitentiary establishments) should not reduce the oversight role of the judiciary authority, quite the contrary.
