Journalists, students prison terms pardoned for first time

Journalists, students prison terms pardoned for first time
World  - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has agreed to pardon or commute the sentences of as many as 3,552 prisoners on the eve of the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and Imam Jafar As-Sadiq (AS), the sixth Imam of Shia Muslims.

32 journalists and students, who were sentenced to imprisonment, were also pardoned by the Supreme Leader upon the Head of Judiciary's suggestion on Thursday.

This is the first time that journalist and students who are being held on "security" charges are included in the" pardon list".

Last February, Ayatollah Khamenei pardoned more than 50,000 people, the largest number ever covered in a single pardon, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
