LVŽS leader proposes amnesty on occasion of Lithuania's centenary, papal visit
Karbauskis has registered an amendment to the amnesty law, which would pardon pregnant women and women with minor children, sentenced to prison for less than six years. Moreover, people over 65, those with medium or severe disabilities and those who committed their crimes being underage and sentenced to less than three years in prison would also be pardoned.
Others would see their sentences reduced but the amnesty would not apply to people sentenced to life imprisonment, recidivists, people sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for premeditated crimes, those sentenced for crimes at correctional facilities and those on probation.
Under the proposal, the amnesty would apply from October for crimes committed before the registration of this amendment on Jul 1.
