Sierre Leone: 96 Pardons!

Sierra Leone celebrated its 50th anniversary of Independence with a parade and government pardons for 96 prisoners (including five who were on "death row"). As a result, there are now only 9 people on "death row" and no one has actually been executed since 1998. See story here.
