        POST  PENAL   ASSISTANCE OF EX-PRISONERS
             - the case of the Republic of Macedonia -

        Abstract

        The author  of the paper deals with the issue of post penal
assistance of ex-prisoners. The author gives a review  of the best
practicies of implementation of the post penal assistance, namely the
Anglo-Saxon  countries. The paper analyses the application of the post
penal assistance of ex-prisoners in the Republic of Macedonia. Post
penal assistance is seen as an extended treatment of the convict. This
form  of treatment is an element of re-socialization as a continuous
process  aimed at successful engagement  of the ex-prisoner in the
lawful  life. Post  penal  assistance  can  be  internal, that  is
encouragement  and advice of the convicts to solve their own problems
they would face immediately after release from the penal institution.
On  the other hand is the external assistance that is manifested through
various forms,  such as: providing temporary  accommodation   and
nutrition, providing  necessary  treatment, selection  of a   new
environment  in which  the convicted person will live, assisting in
arranging family situation, finding suitable employment, enabling to
finish school, providing financial  assistance to cover  the most
necessary needs, etc. External post penal assistance is the real after
care  of ex-prisoners. Post penal assistance as a form of treatment
provides achievement of the principles of humanity in the execution of
criminal sanctions. Measures  taken by the institutions and bodies
responsible for post penal assistance should be in accordance with the
needs ofprisoners.

        Key  words: after-care, convict, ex-prisoner, help, post penal
assistance, prison, reintegration, rehabilitation, re-socialization
