A total of 572 prisoners, who were sentenced for minor offences, had been set free from all the prisons across the country to mark the Christmas Day, Prisons Department said today.

Prisons Spokesman T.N. Upuldeniya said prisoners who had been convicted for minor offences under the Penal Code had been granted Presidential pardon.

“Inmates jailed for minor offences including those who were jailed for not being able to pay fines have been released. Seven female inmates were among the released prisoners,” he said.

Mr. Upuldeniya said special arrangements had been also made to the family members of the Catholic inmates in jail to see their relatives today. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
