Bahrain Royal Decree Pardons 901 Inmates

Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa has issued a royal decree pardoning 901 inmates “for humanitarian reasons, in the backdrop of the current circumstances.”

Interior Minister General Sheikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al-Khalifa said:

“The ministry has thoroughly studied the conditions of the rehabilitation of inmates who are serving their sentences, with a view to determining those who meet the objective and legal conditions.”

In its study abstract, the ministry took into account criteria to determine those who are entitled to amnesty for humanitarian reasons, Sheikh Rashid added, pointing out that it also considered law provisions and international human rights agreements.

The Ministry also focused on the fact that inmates are young people and patients who need special care, as well as their extent of commitment to rehabilitation programs organized by the reform and rehabilitation authority.

It announced that the deportation provisions issued against foreigners are being implemented so that they serve their remaining prison sentences in their countries.

The law on alternative penalties would be implemented on 585 inmates who served half of their jail terms, in compliance with the royal directives to competent authorities to expand the implementation of the law on non-custodial penalties, announced the Ministry.
