Lily, from what I understand, he has to apply for day parole but parole dates are mandatory dates set by the NPB at the 1/3 rd unless a judge imposes something like "not eligible for parole for 1yr". So if hens denied day parole at 6mths, will he not get another hearing at 8mths (which is the 1/3rd mark)? Would he only be able to reapply for day parole at 12mths? Could that mean he actually misses his full parole date? I am confused.
