Over 4,000 prisoners meet amnesty requirements

30/11/2016


The Amnesty Consultancy Council on November 27th convened to adopt the list of prisoners who meet the standard for receiving amnesty before submitting it to the State President for approval.
Since 2009, in realization of the amnesty law, the State has implemented 6 amnesty periods, releasing 81,795 prisoners ahead of sentenced schedule, and postponing the enforcement of sentences for 919 others. A majority of prisoners who are granted with amnesty have returned to their residential areas, stabilized their lives and found ways to earn an honest living. 
Statistics by the Amnesty Consultancy Council show that there are a small number of prisoners granted amnesty returning to crime.
Addressing the meeting, Standing Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh stressed that humanity and clemency for criminals is a good tradition of our nation, adding that Vietnamese laws reflect both strict punishment for criminals, dangerous opposers and repeat offenders, and give clemency to criminals who show repentance, making favourable conditions for them to redeem their wrongdoings and become constructive members of society. 
He asked for special attention to inspection after amnesty, especially in educating and giving vocational training and employment to those granted amnesty. “For those who are in extremely disadvantaged circumstances, it is necessary to encourage agencies, unions and socio-economic organizations to provide loans for them for production,” said Mr Hoa Binh.
After the meeting, the Amnesty Consultancy Council will submit a list of standard prisoners to the State President for approval. Accordingly, over 4,000 prisoners satisfy the requirements for amnesty./.

Việt Nam is strict toward repeat offenders and dangerous ones, but also tolerant and forgiving toward those repenting while serving their sentences, performing their duties to the best of their abilities and contributing to the efficiency of the national crime prevention programme.
