The Legal Adviser to the Presidency of the Republic, Munif Al-Shammari, said, according to the official agency, that "the Presidency of the Republic issued a republican decree pardoning 571 convicts," noting that "those covered by the amnesty are those who committed crimes far from terrorism, financial corruption, and administrative and international crimes."
He explained, "The provisions of the special pardon were issued on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers, and there is a committee in the Council that began to scrutinize the cases of those covered by the pardon decision who have spent half their sentence, as the names were submitted to the Presidency of the Republic to issue a pardon."
He added, "Article 73 of the Constitution stipulated that no amnesty was issued for the perpetrators of terrorism, financial and administrative corruption, in addition to international crimes, and therefore the pardon decision was issued for the perpetrators of regular crimes," stressing "the President of the Republic's keenness to abide by and respect the provisions of the Constitution."
