Definition of Parot


Doctrine of jurisprudence that existed in this country and that was based on preventing a prisoner who had more than 30 years of sentence from being able to leave for good behavior in less than 20 years. For this, the years had to be subtracted from the total sentence and not from the remaining years of sentence.

Jurisprudence that arises from a cassation appeal issued by Henry Parot who was a member of the ETA and which sought to reduce the benefits of good conduct for prisoners with high penalties, especially those who belonged to said terrorist organization.


The term parot began to be used in 2006 to refer to the jurisprudence that prevented prisoners with more than 30 years of conviction from being free in less than 20. The term comes from the surname of the convicted Algerian who gave the guideline, namely, Henry parot.

This doctrine was in force until 2013 when another of the cases of the ETA members managed to demonstrate that the doctrine violated laws of the European human rights convention. Specifically, it was Ines del Río who managed to be released on October 22 of that year.
