    This study examines Mozambican citizens' positions regarding corruption amnesty laws. A series of realistic vignettes was presented to 303 Mozambican adults who were asked to rate the extent to which amnesty applicants deserved to be amnestied, according to three factors: (a) the applicant's status (e.g. former minister), (b) the amount of money embezzled, and (c) the applicant's attitude during the hearing (e.g. revelation of important information). Three qualitatively different positions were found. For 30%, officials convicted of corruption would never deserve to be amnestied. For 28%, repentant attitude was the only determinant of acceptability, and for 42% the amount of money embezzled also mattered.
