“Thanks to remarks by Imam Reza (PBUH) that proper deeds should be appreciated, we should thank all philanthropists across the country, especially the Supreme Leader, for their assistance to the Diyyeh Headquarters in order to help out the needy inmates and the convicts of unpremeditated crimes,” he said. 
 
Jolaee went on to characterize the Diyyeh Headquarters as a blessed outcome of the measures of the late Imam Khomeini and the Islamic Republic and said that in the 12 months to March 20, 2017, as many 9,143 convicts of unpremeditated crimes who had run into 742 billion tomans in debts walked free, some 271 billion tomans of which has been written off by the creditors. “In the first nine months of this year (started on March 21, 2017) as many as 7,481 inmates of unpremeditated crimes got released on the back of support by the Diyyeh Headquarters and assistance of philanthropists.     
 
MSC assistance accounted for one-third of 6.1 billion tomans in direct aid dedicated to the release of the prisoners of unpremeditated crimes.
 
Later in the ceremony, director of the Provincial Justice Department Ahmad Khosravi-Vafa, who is also the chairman of the Board of Trustees at Isfahan Provincial Diyyeh Headquarters, said that Mobarakeh Steel Company has long cooperated with the Diyyeh Headquarters in the province, adding on the back of the support of Isfahan Provincial Diyyeh Headquarters, 517 inmates have been released in the province since the start of the Iranian year.

Such charitable measures are rooted in the human and Islamic thinking of MSC’s managers and staffers, he said.
