Forty inmates of the Mandalay Central Prison were pardoned under Section 401, Sub-section (1) of the Criminal Procedure Code to commemorate Diamond Jubilee Union Day in Aungmyaythazan Township, Mandalay.
The amnesty ceremony was held at the Mandalay Central Prison yesterday morning, attended by Mandalay Region Security and Border Affairs Minister Colonel Kyaw Kyaw Min, Mandalay Region Police Chief Sein Lwin and head of Mandalay Region Prison Department U Cho Win Tun.
Prison officials then instructed the inmates to obey COVID-19 prevention measures and were released from prison after undergoing a medical examination and receiving travel expenses.
Deputy Director in charge of the Mandalay Central Prison U Aung Myo Chun said that the State Administrative Council has commuted the sentences of prisoners in prisons under Section 401 and Sub-section (1) of the Law in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee Union Day.
“The number of prisoners released from Mandalay Central Prison today is 37 male inmates and three female inmates, for a total of 40.
At the time of their release, they were given travel expenses and vaccination records of COVID-19,” U Aung Myo Chun said.
Next released inmate Ko Kyaw Zin Tun said, “We especially thank all the responsible authorities for allowing prisoners like us, who are serving their sentences, to return home earlier than the due date in commemoration of the Diamond Jubilee. I am very happy to be able to return to my family home earlier”.
According to Section 401, Sub-section (1) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, if the inmates commit another crime, they will be pardoned on the basis that they will continue to serve the remaining sentences, officials said. — Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House)/GNLM
