Half of the people who went abroad have their homes here, they should ask from their relatives, general amnesty is guaranteed.
On behalf of Amir-ul-Momineen, H.E Khalifa told the gathering that: Esteemed Shiekh told us to be very gentle with the prisoners and justice should be implemented in the courts.
