On September 23, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov pardoned 868 convicted citizens. The corresponding decree was signed on the occasion of the celebration of the 28th anniversary of independence of Turkmenistan.
According to the state news agency TDH , the heads of law enforcement agencies were instructed to take measures so that the pardoned would soon leave the places of detention and celebrate the holiday with their families. The khyakim of velayats, etraps and cities were ordered to employ the people released.
