Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov signed a pardon decree in connection with the Night of Power (Gadyr Gijesi), one of the odd nights of the last 10 days of Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, the Turkmen government said in a message July 2.

The decree pardoning 586 Turkmen citizens and 26 foreign nationals was signed at a meeting of the cabinet of ministers to further strengthen the unity and solidarity in the Turkmen society.

“Guided by our ancestors’ principles of mercy and humanism, we regularly carry out campaigns pardoning our citizens and foreign nationals, who had done wrong, repented of what they had done and being ready to start a new life,” said Berdimuhamedov.

He also instructed the local authorities to deal with employment of those pardoned.

The pardoned people are exempt from further serving the main and additional punishment terms, according to the decree.
