Damascus – Judge Muhammad Eid Baloza, the Attorney General of Damascus, announced on Saturday that more than 350 inmates have been granted their freedom in Damascus as part of Legislative Decree No. 36 of 2023, which extends a general amnesty to individuals convicted of crimes committed prior to November 16, 2023.
Judge Baloza emphasized that the necessary procedures are underway to ensure the release of all eligible individuals covered by the amnesty decree.
This benevolent action stems from President Bashar al-Assad’s issuance of Legislative Decree No. 36 for 2023 on Thursday, extending a general amnesty for offences committed prior to November 16, 2023, demonstrating the commitment to justice and reconciliation.
