Activity: OtherProfessional

Description

As an international expert of day fines (incoome-dependent fines) I was invited by the advisory committee of the National Consultation on Subject Matter Criminal Law (Landelijk Overleg Vakinhoud Strafrecht - LOVS) to provide them an advice on the unique model of pecuniary sanctions which takes into account in a systematic manner the income of the offender. The work of the committee focuses on a potential reform of Article 24 of the Penal Code which refers to the finaciacl capacity of the offender and how it should accounted for in the sentencing.
