The Dutch criminal justics system has, for some time, been famous for its mildness. This mildness, which has been reflected for example in a strikingly low prison rate, has both impressed and shocked foreign criminal law scholars and criminal justice officials.;However, this traditional mildness is now at state. Crime has increased considerable and so has the prison rate. Major changes have taken place in Dutch society, and these require a new criminal justice policy. In 1985 the Minister of Justice submitted a new policy plan to the Parliament, called ""Society and Crime"" and a new plan called ""Law in Motion"" was published in 1990.;This work describes the current status of the law and incorporates the recent changes.
