Summary/Abstract: The authors of this paper critically analyze the norms which regulate the rights of persons sentenced to imprisonment in the criminal executive legislation of the Republic of Serbia which, after the adoption of the new Law on Execution of Criminal Sanctions, in pertinent part changed compared to solutions that are preceded to the applicable law. Volume of guaranteed rights and special rights (benefits) of prisoners, was, on the basis of previous regulations, in correlation with the type of institution in which the prison sentence is executed. The new law, to a large extent, derogated this principle. The paper presents a comparative analysis of the applicable provisions of the previous law on enforcement of criminal sanctions regulating the right of visits and reception of parcels, but also the provisions of the execution of imprisonment for the criminal acts of organized crime that apply in relation to specific categories of prisoners and which are, basically, considerably reduced in relation to the legal rights of „ordinary“ prisoners. In the concluding remarks of the paper authors present the views of the possibilities of realization and protection of the basic rights of the prisoners, as well as on the directions of further development of the criminal executive legislation in this area.
