Ras al-Khaimah, 10 Dec. 2012 (WAM) – His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council member and ruler of Ras al-Khaimah has ordered the release of 67 prisoners from the emirate’s punitive and correctional institutions before completion of their sentence.

Sheikh Saud will pay the outstanding amounts owed to secure release of the prisoners.

Sheikh Saud’s move was made to mark the GCC Unified Inmate’s Week, observed in the UAE and rest of the GCC countries. It is also aimed at helping the prisoners who proved eligibility for pardon to reunite with their families and at granting them a second chance to become productive and law abiding members of the community.
