Over 1,500 Prisoners To Be Released Early By Sheikh Khalifa


Ahead of the Holy Month of Ramadan, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, has released 1,511 prisoners serving various sentences in the UAE. The President also pledged to settle the financial obligations of the prisoners to be released.

The gesture is part of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa's humanitarian initiatives and reflective of the values of forgiveness and tolerance to give the prisoners an opportunity to start a new chapter of their life and positively contribute to the service of their families and communities.

Sheikh Khalifa's annual pardon ahead of the fasting month aims to enhance family cohesion and bonds, brings about happiness to mothers and children and provides released prisoners with an opportunity to re-think about their future and return to the righteous path that allows them to lead a successful social and professional life.
