Overhaul of criminal sentencing in Monaco introduced by Act No 1.478 of 12 November 2019


This new law constitutes a comprehensive reform of Monaco’s criminal sentencing policy adapted to the modern environment of criminal activity.

It amends numerous provisions of the Criminal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure and certain special laws. It creates new sentences such as community service and day-fines and accommodates new options in serving sentences such as partial suspensions, day releases and work releases.

Some of its provisions have been in force since 15 November 2019 while others will enter into force on 1 May 2020.
