Jan Antolik parole hearing up for consideration soon.
After refusing him parole last year, the Parole Board asked for the following;
“For the next hearing we also ask for information from Immigration New Zealand in relation to Mr Antolik’s immigration status. Of course if deportation is on the cards a different release proposal would be required.”
“We are also aware from the papers on the Board file that there is a current application for extradition to the Czech Republic for outstanding criminal proceedings against him in that country, which may or may not be associated with the circumstances related by him to us, in respect to which he left the country. That application is apparently currently deferred pending the outcome of deportation proceedings currently under consideration by the authorities in this country.
My feeling is he will get parole at next hearing in September. If ILG and Cindy make no decision regarding his deportation and leave it pending, Antolik walks back into community.
Below point confirms it.
“Looking at matters overall the Board is not satisfied that the risk is other than undue. We think that Mr Antolik’s relatively recent resolves towards prosocial living need to be tested by an appropriate programme of reintegration. We commend the prison authorities to help him work towards a Release to Work arrangement.
