Imam Khamenei Pardons 1,000+ Iranian Prisoners on The Prophet’s Birth Anniversary
Local Editor

Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei pardoned or commuted prison terms of 1,007 Iranian convicts sentenced by various courts in the Islamic Republic.

The pardon was granted at the request of the country's Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on the occasion of the birth anniversaries of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] and Imam Jafar Sadiq [AS], the sixth Shia Imam.

The 17th day of the month of Rabi al-Awwal in the lunar Hijri calendar marks the birth anniversaries of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] and Imam Jafar Sadiq [AS]. This year it falls on Wednesday, December 6.

Article 110 of the Constitution grants the Imam the right to pardon or reduce the sentences of convicts upon a recommendation from the head of the Judiciary.

The clemency, however, does not apply to certain types of convicts, including those who have been sentenced for their role in the armed struggle against the country, armed or organized drug trafficking, armed robbery, arms smuggling, abduction, bribery, and embezzlement.
