Iran leader pardons, commutes sentences of over 1,700 inmates on eve of Eid al-Fitr

Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has pardoned or commuted the sentences of more than 1,700 prisoners, as Muslims around the world get ready to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

The pardon and reduction of sentences by the Supreme Leader happen this time on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, the head of Iran’s Judiciary system, had asked Ayatollah Khamenei to pardon or commute 1760 prisoners’ sentences.

Article 110 of the Iranian Constitution allows the Supreme Leader to pardon or commute prison terms of the inmates upon a proposal made by the chief of the Judiciary.
