Leader agrees with pardoning 1542 convicts on  Eid al-Fitr

TEHRAN, Apr. 30 (MNA) – The Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei agreed with pardoning or reduction in the sentences of 1542 convicts on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

The Iranian Judiciary head Golamhossein Mohseni-Eje'i had penned a letter to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution earlier this year to ask for pardoning and commuting the sentences of 1542 convicts on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

The convicts had met the terms and conditions of a commission in the judiciary tasked with examining the pardoning and reduction in jail terms for prisoners.

Monday has been declared the first day of Eid Al-Fir in Iran, according to the calendar.
