His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, in his capacity as the Ruler of Dubai, has ordered the release of 892 Emirati and expatriate inmates from Dubai’s correctional and punitive establishments on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.
Essam Eisa Al Humaidan, Dubai’s Attorney-General, said the Dubai Public Prosecution and Dubai Police have already started the execution of Shaikh Mohammed’s order to ensure release of the prisoners, who served different periods of their jail terms, and their reunion with their families before the beginning of Ramadan.
Al Humaidan expressed his gratitude towards Shaikh Mohammed for the generous gesture which reflects his authentic and noble Arab values and his commitment to members of the society without any discrimination.
He also congratulated the leadership on the occasion of the advent of Ramadan, and the released prisoners on their return to their families.
Al Humaidan urged the pardoned inmates to begin a new life with good behaviour.
