Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has announced amnesty to thousands of people arrested in anti-government protests.

According to Iranian media, the amnesty given to prisoners by the Iranian Supreme Leader does not include prisoners with dual citizenship, spies for foreign agencies, murder and torture, damage to government property and suspects involved in corruption.

Khamenei has announced a general amnesty for thousands of prisoners on the anniversary of the 1979 revolution on the recommendation of the judiciary.

According to Iran’s Harana news agency, around 20,000 people have been arrested in anti-government protests that began in September after the death of a young Kurdish Iranian woman, Mehsa Amini, in police custody.
