Default prisoners released early

Every year about 200 to 300 prisoners are released early a week or 2 before Christmas. I was wondering if anyone knows if this has been done for this year? DH thought it might be this week when it happens but he wasnt sure so he wanted me to ask.

Hi kellz, J was telling me that at his place a lot have been released early, ready for the next intake over christmas. I guess it is easier for the workers if there are less to watch over the holiday break. who knows? they aren't going to tell us what is actually going on are they?
Hope all runs smoothly for you all.

Not here in NSW either. I think this one goes in the same basket as the whole "get out early on good behaviour" thing. It just doesn't happen! A non parole period, is exactly that and that is the earliest date of release.
