Committee discusses amnesty law for prisoners

The Daily Star 18/11/2011

BEIRUT: Parliament’s Justice and Administration Committee announced Thursday that it had kick-started serious discussions on a conditional amnesty law for prisoners.

Speaking following a meeting at Nijmeh Square, the committee’s secretary, Baalbek-Hermel MP Nawar Sahli, said MPs from various blocs had for the “first time” engaged in a serious discussion of an amnesty, and urged inmates not to escalate their protest actions.

“We ask prisoners to consider today a new day – we don’t want to give them [false] hope, but we hope we’ll be able to arrive at an amnesty,” said Sahli.
