KIEV, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday passed an amnesty bill by 232 votes out of 226 that were required. About 25,000 people or every fifth Ukrainian prisoner will be let out of jail.
“The bill grants an amnesty to persons serving prison terms for petty offences, most of which are linked to political or business activities,” Serhiy Sobolev, the head of the Batkivshchyna faction in the Ukrainian parliament, told journalists on Tuesday.
Ukraine had 127,830 inmates in 182 prisons and penitentiaries at the start of 2014.
