The amnesty also pardons prisoners sentenced to a year or less behind bars and those over 75 whose sentence was for less than 10 years. Nearly 7,500 people are set for release, with around 3,000 having been freed already. Courts established temporarily in jails are processing applications around the clock. Around a quarter of the Czech prison population are getting early releases, in a move that officials say will ease over-crowding.
