Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Saturday pardoned and commuted jail terms of a large number of eligible inmates.

The move was made on the occasion of the auspicious birth anniversary of Shiites' 8th Imam, Imam Reza (PBUH).

The decree was issued at the request of the Judiciary Chief to pardon and commute prison terms of 705 prisoners.

In a letter to the Supreme Leader, Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani had proposed the pardoning and commuting prison terms of the inmates in accordance with his legal authorities and observing a series of conditions for the move.

Article 110 of the Constitution grants the Supreme Leader the right to pardon or reduce the sentences of convicts upon a recommendation from the head of the Judiciary.

The Article does not apply to all types of convicts, specially those who have been sentenced for their role in armed struggle against the Islamic Republic, armed or organized drug trafficking, rape, armed robbery, arms smuggling, abduction, bribery and embezzlement.
