    Sri Lnka to enter into an Extradition Treaty with Russian Federation

    September 07, 2014

    The Minister of Defence and Urban Development has taken steps to enter into an Extradition Treaty with the Russian Federation.

     

    According to the Ministry, it has been observed that entering into such a Treaty with the Russian Federation would be beneficial for Sri Lanka as it would enable Sri Lanka to request for the extradition of persons of concern who have engaged in illegal acts in the country and sought refuge in Russia, for criminal prosecution or execution of sentences.

     

    Sri Lanka has signed an Extradition Treaty with the United States in 1999. (ST/KH)
