Fifty-nine Myanmar inmates were released from Ranong Prison on Tuesday after being granted a royal pardon on the occasion of Coronation Day.

The release ceremony was held at a pier in the province and presided over by Ranong Governor Jatupot Piyumputara. 

The governor said the royal pardon had been granted to the Myanmar inmates – as well as to a number of Thai prisoners – who had shown good behaviour, and was aimed at them reforming themselves and starting new lives as good people.

The prisoners released under the pardon had received short training and education in order to prepare them for a return to the outside, he added.
