article 67 – draft amendment

Article 67. (Voluntary surrender) The act of voluntarily giving oneself up to the police and giving a true account of one’s crime after committing it is an act of voluntary surrender. Criminal elements who voluntarily surrender may be given a lesser punishment or a mitigated punishment. Those among them whose crimes are relatively minor may be exempted from punishment.

Where criminal suspects, defendants, and criminals serving sentences give a true account of their other crimes which are not known to the judicial organ, their actions are regarded as an act of voluntary surrender.

Criminal suspects who do not display the conditions of voluntary surrender described in the two previous paragraphs, but who can provide a truthful confession of their crimes can receive a lesser punishment.
