36 Iranian inmates freed by UAE, return home

TEHRAN, Jun. 22 (MNA) – Over the past 3 months, 36 Iranians were released from prisons in Dubai and the northern emirates (Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah and Umm al-Quwain) and returned to Iran.

According to a statement by the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Dubai, some of these inmates were pardoned by the rulers of the emirates after serving half of their sentences. 

The statement said that the Iranian Consulate General has always followed up on the cases of Iranians, especially the inmates in Dubai and in the UAE and provided them with consular and judicial support. 

"Therefore, along with the actions of the Consulate General with the immediate assistance of Iranian trustees living in Dubai in recent years, efforts have been made to greatly reduce the suffering of these prisoners," the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Dubai added in its statement.
