Imagine: Celebrating by Forgiving!

It is reported that King Mohammed VI of Morocco has granted pardons and commutations of sentence to nearly 1,000 people. The occasion? The King desires to celebrate his 11th years on the throne. As we all know, Mohammed VI took the throne from his father, Hassan II. Since then he (Mohammed VI) has "regularly" pardoned prisoners "to mark national or religious festivals." Indeed, this batch of pardons is said to be "relatively modest" in comparison with last year, when almost 25,000 people received pardons ahead of the 10th anniversary celebrations. See full article here.
