Senegalese President Macky Sall pardoned 818 people on the occasion of the New Year, including 10 minors convicted of various offences and detained in different prisons in Senegal, according to the Senegalese Ministry of Justice.

   The move by the Senegalese president is a commitment to give a second chance to those who accidentally break the law, it said.

   The Senegalese authorities pardon detainees during the holidays to unclog the country’s nine penal centers. The government has embarked on a program to combat prison overcrowding with the introduction of the electronic bracelet.
