Several prisoners in Qatar have been pardoned by the Emir as part of an annual Ramadan tradition, QNA reports.
No specific details were provided, but typically the prisoners have already served a large portion of their sentences.
Additionally, many of the pardoned usually hail from nations that have a lot of nationals in Qatar, including India, Nepal, Bangladesh and the Philippines.
Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani generally pardons prisoners twice annually, including National Day on Dec. 18.
Embassy officials have previously said the action is seen as a sign of goodwill toward Qatar’s large expat population.
