HA NOI (VNS)- Ha Noi's parole council yesterday announced 386 prisoners would be granted amnesty on the occasion of upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year).
Of these, 160 prisoners would be released from prison and 226 others granted a
reduction of 3-10 months in their sentences.
The amnesty beneficiaries are persons who have performed well under the re-education process in
local prisons, the council said.
Under the city's policy, those convicted of robbing property and illegal debt collection would not be granted amnesty this year. -- VNS
