Sheikh Khalifa has ordered the release of more than 3,000 prisoners ahead of Ramadan.



The President of the UAE also pledged to settle the debts of the inmates, allowing them and their families the chance of a fresh start.

Sheikh Khalifa traditionally announces the release of hundreds of prisoners at this time of year.

Last year, close to 1,000 men and women, jailed for a variety of offences, were also pardoned.



On Thursday, Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, the Ruler of Sharjah, also announced the release of 377 prisoners from the emirate.
