More than 8,000 prisoners in Turkmenistan will be granted amnesty in accordance with the tradition of the Night of Omnipotence, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan in the central Asian republic, the presidential news service said Monday. In a statement, President Saparmurat Niyazov said 8,145 prisoners, who had committed misdemeanors, would be released, reducing the number of prisoners in the country to 4,137. Turkmenistan's annual amnesty honors the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, "the breaking of the fast," in accordance with a 1999 law. The Turkmen Prosecutor General's Office said 140,000 prisoners had been released under amnesty over the past 13 years.
