English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. amnesty(n)

    Acquittal is a release from a charge, after trial, as not guilty. Pardon is a removal of penalty from one who has been adjudged guilty. Acquittal is by the decision of a court, commonly of a jury; pardon is the act of the executive. An innocent man may demand acquittal, and need not plead for pardon. Pardon supposes an offense; yet, as our laws stand, to grant a pardon is sometimes the only way to release one who has been wrongly convicted. Oblivion, from the Latin, signifies overlooking and virtually forgetting an offense, so that the offender stands before the law in all respects as if it had never been committed. Amnesty brings the same idea through the Greek. Pardon affects individuals; amnesty and oblivion are said of great numbers. Pardon is oftenest applied to the ordinary administration of law; amnesty, to national and military affairs. An amnesty is issued after war, insurrection, or rebellion; it is often granted by "an act of oblivion," and includes a full pardon of all offenders who come within its provisions. Absolution is a religious word (compare synonyms for ABSOLVE). Remission is a discharge from penalty; as, the remission of a fine.

    Synonyms:
    absolution, acquittal, forbearance, forgiveness, mercy, oblivion, pardon, pardon, remission

    Antonyms:
    penalty, punishment, retaliation, retribution, vengeance

    Preposition:
    A pardon to or for the offenders; for all offenses; the pardon of offenders or offenses.

How to use AMNESTY in a sentence?

  1. Sarah Palin:

    (The choice) became much less difficult once some inconsistencies started coming out about Cruz's position on amnesty, on building that wall (along the Mexican border), and securing our jobs and our homes via tighter borders, you know, I just started looking a little bit closer and realizing we just don't need more of the same. We need that fresh, energetic, can-do spirit that Trump has brought with him from the private sector, which I love. So yeah, end of the day, it wasn't a tough decision.

  2. Hong Kong:

    Any demand that we should run an amnesty at this stage, that we will not follow up on investigations and prosecutions of offenders is not acceptable, because that bluntly goes against the rule of law in Hong Kong, ...My sincere plea is: Please give us an opportunity, the time, the room, to take Hong Kong out of the current impasse and try to improve the current situation.

  3. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker:

    And part of doing this is put the onus on employers, getting them E-Verify and tools to do that. But I don't think you do it through amnesty.

  4. Scott Walker:

    I'm not a supporter of amnesty, i know there are some out there (who disagree.) And I respect their views on that. But I'm not a supporter of amnesty.

  5. Modibo Bachir Walidu:

    Proceedings at the ICC take a lot of time. Perhaps Amnesty thinks we are doing nothing, or not enough to prosecute criminals, but I assure you that the government is determined to combat impunity.
