Twenty-eight convicts are being released after receiving a pardon from the President on Friday in time for the August 15 holiday, prison governor Anna Aristotelous said.

She said the purpose of the pardons was to aid their reintegration into society.

Like every year, inmates who were scheduled to be released by October 31 this year and those who until August 15 completed half of their sentence were released.

She said people convicted for murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, drugs trafficking, and sexual offences were not eligible for presidential pardon.
