Historically ‘parole’ is a concept known to military law and denotes release of a prisoner of war on promise to return. Parole has become an integral part of the English and American systems of criminal justice intertwined with the evolution of changing attitudes of the society towards crime and criminals. In those Countries, parole is taken as an act of grace and not as a matter of right and the convict prisoner may be released on condition that he abides by the promise. It is a provisional release from confinement but is deemed to be a part of the imprisonment. Release on parole is a wing of the reformative process and is expected to provide opportunity status of the prisoner. Parole system means the system of releasing prisoners in jail on parole, by suspension of their sentences in accordance with the rules for the time being in force. Regular Parole is allowed for a maximum period of one month, except in special circumstances, to convicts who have served at least one year in prison.

Emergent Religious Bodies and Noise Pollution: Perspectives on Enugu Metropolis and Environs
Apart from such Othordox churches like Catholic, Anglican, Methodist, Apostolic and a few others, the presence of other religious bodies, especially of the Christian faith, is now ubiquitous and overwhelming within the Enugu metropolis and its environs. This ubiquity and, in some cases clustered, no doubt come with its attendant noise pollution in the environment to the detriment of the general public. This work examined the rising and emergent religious bodies in the Enugu urban centre and its adjacent environs, the impact of the cacophony of noise emanating from them which is harmful to the public in terms of decency and aesthetics as they are arbitrarily sited or located especially in purely residential zones. It made recommendations to the appropriate authorities on how to curb this menace and restore the lost glory and status of Enugu Metropolis as a clean city both in terms of neatness, serenity, structural and demographic aesthetics and decency.
Euthanasia is a much debated concept around the world. It involves a human’s right to take way his life or have a choice of living the life. Art.21 guarantees the right of life and liberty also including human dignity as a fundamental right and human right. Does a person have a right not to live is the question of the hour.The study would be touch upon the history of Human right of a man in India, the justification to euthanasia’s legality or illegality while studying euthanasia in other jurisdictions as well thereby analysing the concept of life and death as a Constitutional right and a human right in formation of legislation to control and guide euthanasia and the principles by which it is governed and the policy towards an effective legislation in India while taking guidance from Netherlands and Belgium Court’s statement in validifying the act of passive euthanasia.
