Envoy urges further judicial cooperation between Iran, Malaysia

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Malaysia Mohammad Jalal Firouznia called for further judicial cooperation between Tehran and Kuala Lumpur in a bid to facilitate extradition of criminals between the two countries.

He made the remarks in a meeting with Malaysia’s Chief Justice Dato Lela Negara Tun Arifin bin Zakaria.

“Iran has already presented a blueprint for extradition of prisoners to the Malaysian judiciary, but, received no reply yet,” the Iranian envoy said.

He noted that there are some Iranian nationals who are still in jail without trial and those whose convictions have been removed are still in custody of the Malaysian police.

The Malaysian chief justice, for his part, welcomed judicial cooperation between Iran and Malaysia.

Iran and Malaysia share many cultural and social affinities and the ties between the two countries’ people are very close.
