The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei on Monday pardoned and commuted prison terms of a number of convicts sentenced by various Iranian courts.

Imam Khamenei Pardons More than 1000 Prisoner
Imam Khamenei granted amnesty to 1,059 convicts on the occasion of Nowrouz celebrations [starting on March 21] and the anniversary of the 'Islamic Republic Day' [April 1] in which over 99% of the Iranians voted for the Islamic Republic after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran (1979).

Nowrouz, which coincides with the first day of spring on the solar calendar, is mostly celebrated in Iran, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, India, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
The pardon was made at the request of the country's Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani.
