Summary/Abstract: There are more than thirty penal institutions in the Republic of Serbia in which persons deprived of liberty “reside” due to different reasons as prescribed by law. A convicted person is committed to serve a prison sentence after the final court judgement. This is the rule, however, there is an exception. The position of a convict while serving a prison sentence depends on the type of penal institution in which the convict serves the sentence. There are many circumstances prescribed by law that determine to which penal institutions a convict will be committed to. Since 2009, there have been special rules on serving prison sentences for a certain category of convicts in the Republic of Serbia. This is when the Law on the Enforcement of the Prison Sentence for Criminal Offenses of Organised Crime was enacted. The author focuses on the committal of the most dangerous convicts to serving prison sentences. In this regard, the author points out who the most dangerous convicts are, where they serve the prison sentence, and how the procedure of committing the convict to serve the sentence is organised.
