TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Iranian official unveiled plans for the exchange of prisoners with Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Somalia and Iraq.
As part of an agreement signed between Iran and Qatar, he noted, six Iranian convicts were repatriated from Qatar on Wednesday.
Iran has extradition treaties with a number of countries. In a recent case, Iran and Japan in January finalized details of an extradition treaty after 5 years of technical talks and exchange of diplomatic delegations.
An extradition treaty allows two countries to exchange their respective convicted citizens, so the inmates would complete their prison terms at home.
