Press Release

Today, the Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialogue launched an urgent appeal to the President to use his constitutional powers under Article 155 of the Constitution and to issue a decision to pardon the punishment, or drop charges, or replace the sentence with a lighter punishment, which is the presidential decision that does not need a law to pass it, in order to release some of the convicted politicians and labor activists. It is a step that the forum believes will make progress and will be a step forward to unify the efforts of the government and the opposition in confronting the effects of the Corona virus and opening a new page of mutual trust between the government and the opposition. The forum hopes that the President will respond to the forum’s call to become a new step that confirms the tolerance of the President and confirms the continuation of the presidency’s approach in issuing periodic pardons for some prisoners and convicts.
