According to the article 56 of the Romanian Criminal Code, â€œlife imprisonmentâ€ is defined as the deprivation of liberty for an unlimited period of time and is executed according to the Law that governs the enforcement of punishments In the event that the national legislation allows for a re-examination of the life imprisonment sentence of a convict to a jail time or to allow for a parole, we believe that the requirements of the European Convention of Human Rights are fulfilled. (case Trabelsi vs. Belgium, Decision from 4th of September 2014). With respect to the enforcement of the life imprisonment sentence, in a few European countries there are particular previsions by the Law (Croatia, Norway, Slovenia), but in Portugal itâ€™s banned by the Constitution; in Belgium, the life imprisonment sentence is defined as a sanction for the rest of the life, while in Cyprus there is no option for parole since the Law doesnâ€™t allow it, but it can be affected only by presidential pardon.
