DUBAI (1) – The Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq al-Mentioned, has pardoned 599 prisoners jailed for numerous offenses, including 336 foreigners, the state-run Oman News Agency mentioned on Twitter on Wednesday.

The tweet didn’t say if the discharge was associated to the coronavirus outbreak or the holy month of Ramadan, which begins later this month.
