A Government mechanism to support offender responsibilities

A Government initiated fund based on the "STUDENT LOANS" model to be made available to support all convicted individuals unable to pay expences and/or fines enforced by a court of law. The fund would subsequently claw back the loan in exactly the same way as a student loan and would  involve a similar rate of interest on the outstanding amount.

The fund should be available for an individual to claim up to three separate loans. A fourth loan should only be allowed when all previous loans have been repaid.

For all individuals loans should remain payable after bankrupcy so that a loan of this kind could only lapse on death of the individual.
