IPP is inhumane, against human rights and breaches Human Rights Act 1998 Article 3 Prohibition of Torture - No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment

The Petition is Sponsored by: Lorna Elliott IIb -Barrister,& Lound Mulrenan jefferies Solicitors former with Emmerson Soliciters Ipp familys Campaign.
IPP is inhumane, against human rights and breaches Human Rights Act 1998 Article 3 Prohibition of Torture - No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment
IPP stands for Indeterminate sentence for Public Protection - What this actually means is if you were to go to court and receive a 2 year sentence, 3 years, 4 years, etc..... with IPP you could be imprisoned for up to 99 years.At the moment it is still up to the prisoner to prove that they are safe for release which is what makes it impossible as you cannot prove you are safe to release as you are in prison.It is then up to a parole board to decide if they feel you are ready to be released back in to society, so prisoners and their families do not know IF or WHEN they will EVER be released, this in itself is mental TORTURE, DEGRADING & INHUMANE.There are currently over 3,200 prisoners that are over their tariff which is costing £41,000 each year for each prisoner to remain in prison. For 3,200 prisoners this amounts to £131,200,000 each year and in total there are 88,000 prisoners in prison in the UK.The main point of our campaign is not to argue whether or not the prisoners deserved to go to prison - The fact of the matter is that even if it means that prisoners are given longer sentences - be it 2 years, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, or even 25 years - then every human on this planet deserves to know when they will be home with their children and/or families again, they deserve to know what time they have to serve, change the existing IPP sentences over to determinate sentences.
