People’s Congress Passes Amnesty Bill on Jailed Criminals
The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress has voted in favor of an amnesty on certain criminals currently serving time in jail. Four types of prisoner qualify: those who served China in WWII, those who fought outside parties to defend national sovereignty, safety and territorial integrity after the PRC was established (corruption and violent crime convicts excluded), those over 75 who are disabled and can’t look after themselves, and those who were under 18 and sentenced to less than 3 years or have less than 1 year left to serve (violent crimes excluded). Netizens think this amnesty represents national progress.
