Around 20 prisoners were released from the Jadayida Reform and Rehabilitation Institution, on Monday, after completing their legal procedures.

The institution explained on its Facebook page that all inmates were released upon permission from the Public Prosecution Office.

The Ministry of Justice recently said it was studying the possibility of reducing the number of prisoners, in anticipation of the infiltration of the Covid-19 into the country.
