After the adoption of the amnesty law in Georgia another 69 more prisoners have been released from prison, the GHN reported.


According to the Ministry of Corrections, Probation and Legal Assistance of Georgia, since the entry of the law "On Amnesty" into force on January 13, 5869 inmates have been released.

"As a result of the amnesty, 5869 convicts and defendants, including 175 political prisoners, 232 women and 15 minors, have been released from the penal institutions", the Ministry announced on Tuesday, February 5.

As recalled by the News-Georgia, the law "On Amnesty" was approved by the Parliament of Georgia on December 21, 2012. On December 27, Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili vetoed the part of the law concerning the political prisoners and those who have committed crimes against minors. However, on December 28, the Parliament overcame the presidential veto. Later the law was signed by the chairman of the Georgian parliament and on January 13 the law came into force.
