Abstract
The reintegration of former prisoners is undoubtedly a complex issue. Not only the prisoners’ attitudes and characteristics make the reintegration a difficult matter, but also the process of stigmatizing such individuals makes it less easy. The access to and use off criminal records only consolidates this process. Employers and other individuals find through these documents admittance to the past of former prisoners and use old and recent convictions against them. This right on information contrasts with the right of privacy people have. Via a legal system of criminal records one might conclude that the right on information dominates the right on privacy. To restore the equipoise, the introduction of a test of relevance reaches out as a helpful solution.
