U.A.E. Attorney General hails President’s directives to release 969 prisoners

ABU DHABI: Salem Saeed Kubaish, U.A.E. Attorney General, has said that President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s order to release 969 prisoners serving terms in various prisons on the occasion of the Holy Month of Ramadan and pay off their liabilities and debts offered the released prisoners a good opportunity to reintegrate into the social fabric as good, law-abiding citizens so as to contribute positively to the process of nation building and development.

”The pardon inculcates positive motives in the hearts and minds of the pardoned prisoners, spurring them to set their conduct right and follow the right path.
