Settlement colony refers to open correctional institutions, where the convicted person has the right to an unlimited number of visits and parcels from home. Transfer to such conditions is one of the forms of encouragement and is of great importance for social rehabilitation. Under what conditions can a transfer to a colony-settlement be carried out?
You can be transferred to a settlement colony if: - you have served 1/4 of the term of punishment established by the court in a general regime colony; - you have served 1/3 of the term of punishment established by the court in a penal colony; - you have served 1/2 of the term of punishment established by the court (if were previously released on parole and subsequently convicted again); - served 2/3 of the term of punishment established by law for especially grave crimes.
Please note: you will not be transferred to a colony-settlement if: - you can be recognized as a particularly dangerous recidivist; - you were sentenced to life imprisonment, which was later reduced to a certain period established by the court; - you have not yet passed the mandatory or special treatment in a closed medical facility; - if you have not given your consent to your transfer.
First, contact the administration of the IC with an application for transferring you to a light regime. The application should be written in the name of the head of the colony, indicating his full name. and the numbers of the correctional facility. Indicate your full name, as well as the dates of the beginning and end of the sentence. Ask him to transfer you to a light regime on the basis of Article 120 of the RF PEC. Write down how long you served on the general (strict) regime. Indicate that you have no penalties and violations (or they have already been paid off) and that you are positively characterized at the place of work (or work and study). Attach to the application requests for your transfer on behalf of the next of kin, submissions from foremen, foremen, etc. Date and sign.
If the administration of the correctional colony has transferred you to a light regime, your next step will be to draw up a petition to the court at the place of serving your sentence. The head of the camp has no right to refuse you to transfer your case to the judicial authorities if you are characterized by a positive character.
Indicate in the upper right corner of your petition to which court you are submitting it. Indicate the number of the article under which you were convicted, your full name and address of the IC. Ask the court for your transfer to a colony-settlement on the basis of Article 78 of the CEC of the Russian Federation. Write that you regret what you have done, make every effort to ensure that it does not happen again. As evidence, indicate how many rewards you had during your stay in a general or strict regime colony, etc. Date and sign.
Give the petition to the camp governor and await the court's decision. It is likely that it will be positive. After all, the court will not take into account when making a decision: - the severity of the crime you committed; - whether you have claims (for example, alimony); - the short duration of your stay in this correctional institution.
