I cannot believe I'm free, says inmate pardoned in Ramadan
Abu Dhabi: "I cannot describe the feeling I had when I heard about being pardoned ... it is the best feeling I have experienced in my 29 years. I have felt happiness many times before but never this way," says R.B., a Lebanese prisoner, set to walk free soon.
Under the directives of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 808 prisoners were pardoned and debts worth Dh3.429 million settled. The prisoners include UAE nationals as well as expatriates.
R.B, a civil engineer, thanked Shaikh Khalifa for his humanitarian gesture to free hundreds of prisoners during Ramadan. R.B was sentenced to four years in jail for drug possession.
