President Traian B?sescu signed a decree on Monday pardoning a woman, Garofi?a Mocani, serving a jail sentence for aggravated theft. She was to serve three more years in prison for this charge. B?sescu argues he pardoned the woman for humanitarian reasons, as she had six children, the oldest being 11 years old, the youngest just one year old.
This is not the first time B?sescu pardons women with children. On October 1 he pardoned a woman with seven children and having serious mental disorders, who was serving a jail sentence for stealing a mobile phone.
On June this year, President B?sescu was approving the first pardoning of his second term, offering freedom for a woman with five children.
