In his capacity as the Ruler of Dubai, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has ordered the release of 472 prisoners from Dubai’s correctional and punitive establishments ahead of the UAE's 49th National Day.
On this occasion, the Attorney General of Dubai Essam Issa Al Humaidan said that Sheikh Mohammed’s order to pardon the prisoners reflects his keenness to give the convicted inmates a chance to start a new life and alleviate their families’ hardship, as well as provide them the opportunity to reintegrate into society. He said the gesture also reflects one of the UAE’s key national values of tolerance.
Dubai Public Prosecution will immediately commence the legal procedures required to implement Sheikh Mohammed’s order.
