The Higher Pardon Committee continues to study other cases that deserve a conditional pardon. Sunday it ordered the conditional pardon of inmates.
This framework supports the Ministry of Interior’s keenness to implement a punitive modern policy، providing various aspects of care for prisoners and releasing convicts who have been rehabilitated to join the society، the Ministry said in a statement.
