A total of  753 prisoners have been released from jail after Slovak president Ivan Gašparovič granted the presidential amnesties to mark the 20th anniversary of the setting up of an independent Slovak Republic. Though some of the released have already returned to prison, Police Corps President Tibor Gašpar says that so far the amnesty has not worsened the security situation in Slovakia.
