Convicts almost do not appeal for pardon

Another meeting of the Regional Pardon Commission took place.

It was noted that administrations of penitentiary institutions did not enough to give the convicted a clear notion of legal norms that regulate their right to appeal to the President for pardon. For example, for over a year and a half since the day when the President signed the edict only 3 of 800 convicts from the Penitentiary YAP-17/6, 5 of 1300 convicts from the Penitentiary for Women YAP-17/8 and 5 of 130 from the reformatory have appealed for pardon.
