MOSCOW, April 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The negotiations for Viktor Bout’s probable extradition to serve the sentence in Russia may begin only after an address of Bout or his representative or in case of an address from the US agency concerned, the press service of the Russian Justice Ministry told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The Russian Justice Ministry can involve in Bout’s extradition process in case of a relevant address to the Justice Ministry from the convict or his representative or an address of the US agency concerned,” the press service said.
Under the European Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons signed on March 21, 1983 the convict can ask for the transfer to the homeland to serve the sentence to the authorities of the country, where he asks to be transferred, or to the authorities of the country, which pronounced the verdict. Meanwhile, the convention commits the country, which passed the verdict, to inform about the content of the convention and if the convict asks for being transferred inform about this step the country, in which the convict has his citizenship within the shortest possible deadlines after the court verdict became final.
“No addresses were made yet,” the press service noted.
