From CyprusMail: Thirty-one inmates who were eligible to receive a presidential pardon have been released ahead of Easter, the deputy prison chief Anna Aristotelous said on Monday. The inmates, 21 Cypriots and 10 foreign nationals, were released on Monday, after receiving a presidential pardon for Easter. Among those released, were the two secret service (KYP) officers EleftehriosMouskos and Costas Miamiliotis who were sentenced to six months each in January, after being found guilty of taking bribes in the Dromolaxia land scandal. “They fulfil the criteria,” Aristotelous told the Cyprus Mail. Eligible for pardon, Aristotelous said, were the inmates who have served half their sentence and would have been released by July 31, excluding those convicted for murder, drugs or sex crimes.
