MOSCOW, September 25. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the government to present to President Vladimir Putin two international agreements in the field of justice for their following submission to the State Duma lower house of parliament for ratification, the government reported on its website on Friday.
The Cabinet reports that the documents are an extradition treaty between Russia and Argentina and the Russia-Lebanon agreement on the transfer of persons sentenced to imprisonment.
The Russia-Argentina treaty was signed in Buenos Aires on July 12, 2014. According to the document, the parties undertake to extradite to each other upon request persons for criminal prosecution or execution of sentence. According to the treaty, the extraditable offences are criminal acts punishable under both parties’ law with imprisonment for a term at least one year or entailing a more severe punishment, the explanatory note says.
The Russian-Lebanese agreement was signed in Moscow on December 16, 2014. According to the document, "the parties shall afford each other all possible assistance in the transfer of persons sentenced to imprisonment to serve their sentences in the state of their nationality," say the background materials.
The draft laws on the ratification of these documents were approved at a meeting of the Russian government on September 17.
