The Abu Dhabi Attorney General also praised the continuous follow-up by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and President of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), of the detention conditions in the correctional facilities, which has resulted in achieving the highest human rights standards in Abu Dhabi’s punitive facilities.

Alblooshi emphasised the profound significance of this humanitarian message that wise leaders spare no effort to stand by their people and provide them with every opportunity to be of service to themselves, their families and society, and urged other prisoners to show good conduct and behaviour in the correctional facilities to increase their chances of benefiting from future pardon initiatives.
