Perak ruler Sultan Nazrin Shah has consented to the early release of two prisoners in conjunction with his 64th birthday celebration tomorrow.

Perak Pardons Board secretary Ahmad Suaidi Abdul Rahim said the prisoners who were to be released on May 18, 2022 and June 24, 2023, would be granted an early release effective Nov 6.

He said a total of 12 appeals were presented for consideration at the Pardons Board meeting last Thursday, chaired by Sultan Nazrin.

“After considering the Malaysian Prisons Department report, the attorney-general’s views, and comments of the board members, the sultan was satisfied that the punishment which the two prisoners endured had taught them useful lessons to mend their ways,” Suaidi said at a press conference in Ipoh today.

He said Sultan Nazrin had said that a sentence was imposed with the intention of teaching the community to uphold the country’s laws.

He said Sultan Nazrin also said that a pardon or mitigation of a sentence decided by the court would only be considered if a prisoner had shown remorse and regretted committing the offence after apologising, behaving well while in custody, and showing determination to start a new life.
