Asked in Nelson Mandela

Was Nelson Mandela knighted as a 'Sir'?

User Avatar
Nelson Mandela is an honorary British knight (as of 1995). As such he is not entitled to be called Sir. An honorary award is one made to a person who is not a citizen of a Commonwealth realm. They cannot use the pre-nominal style of 'Sir' or 'Dame', but can use the post-nominal letters (after their names) subject to the prevailing conventions in their own country. If such a person later acquires citizenship of a Commonwealth realm, then any honorary awards are usually made substantive and, in the case of knights and dames, they can begin to use the pre-nominal styles. Nelson Mandel has received Knights Grand Cross of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav and The Order of the Elephant (Danish: Elefantordenen) (the highest order of Denmark. It has existed since 1693, and is almost exclusively bestowed on royalty and heads of state.)

What is a projected release date from prison?

User Avatar
The date that the prison has been told they will release the inmate. It is variable though, and can change based on new crimes being charged while incarcerated or a releasing authority changing the date. A projected release date is the first or next possible date of release in an indeterminant sentence. For instance: if offender Bob's sentence began on 1/1/09 and he received the indeterminant sentence of 3-15 years, his projected release date would be 1/1/12. As mentioned previously, a releasing authority such as a parole board or panel has the authority to change this date, usually extending it. A state's governor or the President may also change this date by commutting a sentence or issuing a pardon. An inmate is given two release dates, ERD - Earliest Release date and Max Date - Max date. They will get out between this time. Usually the erd as long as they do not have any disciplinary problems. If they get into trouble time gets add, until their max date... Unless they commit felony's inside then that changes the release date completely.
