Accra July 2, GNA - The Ghana Prisons Service (GPS) on Wednesday said prisoners who have benefited from the amnesty granted by the President in connection with the celebration of Ghana's Republic Day would be released when the documentation process is through.

The Prisons Service is awaiting confirmation before the release of the over 2,000 prisoners, including Mallam Isa Yusif, Former Minister of Youth and Sports.

Ms Patience Sai, Personal Assistant to the Director General of the Service said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency.

She urged the public to be patient about the process because "once the amnesty is out they would certainly be released".

Preident John Agyekum Kufuor on Monday granted an amnesty to a number of prisoners across the country in connection with the celebration of Ghana's 43rd Republic Day anniversary, which fell on Tuesday, July 1.
