Sheikh Mohammeds grand gesture ahead of Ramadan

The order comes a day after The President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, ordered the release of 977 prisoners on account of the holy month of Ramadan.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Wednesday ordered the release of 1,014 prisoners of different nationalities from Dubai's correctional and punitive establishments, ahead of Ramadan.

The Attorney-General of Dubai, Chancellor Essam Issa Al Humaidan, said that Sheikh Mohammed's order to pardon the prisoners will bring happiness to their families, help the pardoned individuals get a fresh start in life and support them in reintegrating into the community.

Al Humaidan said that the order will have a positive impact on the community, as it will give the pardoned prisoners a chance to re-join their families and friends and begin a new chapter in their lives.

The Attorney-General also said that the public prosecution has commenced the legal procedures to implement Sheikh Mohammed's order.

The order comes a day after The President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, ordered the release of 977 prisoners on account of the holy month of Ramadan.
