PARIS (Reuters / RTR)- Frenchwoman Jacqueline Sauvage, which became known was released by the murder of her abusive husband. President Francois Hollande announced that he was her Wednesday granted a presidential pardon that ' immediate end to her imprisonment. '' This brought to an end a protracted legal process.
The case-Sauvage did in France a stir. The woman shot her husband to death in 2012 after a marriage she described as a 47-year hell full of abuse and mistreatment. During her trial, she became a symbol of all victims of domestic violence. It helped her out immediately: she was sentenced to ten years in prison.
After massive endorsements Hollande decided earlier this year that she should be released under certain conditions. However, the French court for criminal purposes was not justified her release and put a stop to, after it had rolled a negative opinion from psychological research.
Hollande has now Sauvage decided to grant a full pardon. That power he had only once used previously.
