21 prisoners released in Nimroz

May 10, 2011 - 18:25

ZARANJ (PANinfo-icon): Twenty-one prisoners were released from a prison and another 73 inmates got their jail terms slashed under a presidential decree in southwestern Nimroz province, an official said on Tuesday.

The prisoners were released in compliance with the presidential decree issued on the occasion of Mujahideeninfo-icon's victory day (April 28), Attaullah Fakri, provincial prisons' chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The acting jail chief, Col. Najeebullah, said the jail built on one acre of land in a residential area had the capacity of housing 50 prisoners. He said currently there were 300 prisoners held up in the facility. He said the inmates were faced with a lack of space.

Neyaz Mohammad, one of the beneficiaries of the presidential decree, complained he was kept in a small cell, where no toilets or bathrooms were available.
