Japan to pardon half a million criminals to mark the new emperor’s enthronement

Japan will discharge more than half a million criminals at a service to commemorate the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito next week, an official said Friday.

“We will properly implement the official pardons with a policy to promote social rehabilitation by increasing the criminals‘ desire to rehabilitate themselves,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters in Tokyo, Kyodo News reported.

Most of the freed convicts will include traffic offenders and those involved in secondary thefts.Nonetheless, those serving sentences will be unconsidered for pardons.
