TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday pardoned or commuted the sentences of 565 Iranian convicts.
The pardon was granted at the request of the country’s Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani on the occasion of the 39th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
The Iranian nation toppled the U.S.-backed Pahlavi regime 39 years ago, on February 11, 1979, ending the 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.
The Revolution, led by the late Imam Khomeini, established a new political system based on Islamic values and democracy.
