We want the abolition of the IPP for all currently serving IPP's

             

We want the abolition of the IPP for all currently serving IPP's
            
IPP is a life sentence that you continue to serve after you leave prison. Young men and woman  who had offences that ranged from ABH with intent, burglary other....These types of offences did not warrant a life sentence, they did not commit murder. The high Court ruled Indeterminate sentences breached human rights. The government is to scrap the IPP DECEMBER 3RD 2012. But abolition, however welcome, is not retrospective: it doesn't affect those currently serving IPP. Even though they will have scraped the IPP, it would still exist.
When they abolished slavery it was not on the understanding that existing slaves would be freed, they still had to live as slaves as, it just meant that no new slaves would be created.
The abolishment of the IPP should be for all. What I’m trying to say is that if you abolished hanging would you still hang those still in prison serving the end of their sentence?
