One of the ways to organize penal system is the enforcement of principle of individualization of punishments. Iran’s legislator, before enacting new rule of punishments, for applying this principle used some methods including probation and parole until in subsequent punishment law, more steps were taken to realize and enforce this principle and these methods were developed, and also institutions such as postponement of sentence were established by legislator. This is a new institution in penal law which allows the judge of a case to postpone issuing conviction sentence of offender by considering some conditions.
In this paper, authors attempt to review the nature of this institution and articulate the requirements, effects, purposes of this institution. While putting forward different discussions, we study and analyze related articles.
