The notice must be accompanied by a copy of the prisoner's or commissioner's application for parole submitted under AS 33.16.085 . The copy of the application sent to the victim must include the prisoner's proposed residence and employment addresses.

The board shall send the notice required by this section to the last known address of the victim. The victim's address may not be disclosed to the prisoner or the prisoner's attorney.

(c) The victim has a right to attend meetings of the parole board in which the status of the prisoner convicted of the crime against that victim is officially considered and to comment, in writing or in person, on the proposed action of the board. Copies of any written comments shall be provided to the prisoner and the prisoner's attorney before action by the board.

(d) The board shall consider the comments presented under (c) of this section in deciding whether to release the prisoner on special medical parole.

(e) If the victim requests, the board shall make every reasonable effort to notify the victim as soon as practicable in writing of its decision to grant or deny special medical parole. The notice under this subsection must include the expected date of the prisoner's release, the geographic area in which the prisoner is required to reside, and other pertinent information concerning the prisoner's conditions of parole that may affect the victim.
