Libya releases 1.345 prisoners in general amnesty

In a decision similar to the one taken last year during Eid, Libya’s Supreme Judicial Council has agreed to pardon the rest of the sentences for convicts that have already served at least half of the sentence, and that a third of the term is sufficient for convicts who suffer from chronic diseases, need special medical care, or are over 60 years old. The general amnesty decision does not include those convicted in cases related to terrorism, harming state security, retribution, and punishment, in addition to crimes of premeditated murder, kidnapping, and forced theft, unless reconciliation is made with the victim.
