President Shavkat Mirziyoyev pardoned 2 700 convicts

On the eve of the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the President of our country Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a Decree on pardoning 2 700 convicts.

For the first time in the history of our country, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan adopted the Decree on pardoning 2 700 convicts, including on releasing 956 persons from the penal colony, who committed crimes due to various circumstances, who are sincerely repented of their actions and firmly embarked on the path of correction, and who are positively characterized at the place of residence and in institutions on the execution of punishment.

The act on pardoning these convicts provides the opportunity for an early reunification with a family and returning to society in order to become active participants in the ongoing reforms in the country.

The detailed information will be published later on our website.
