MOSCOW, May 20. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma lower parliament house on Friday ratified an agreement on extradition of criminals with Panama.
The document was signed by President Vladimir Putin on April 29, 2015.
The agreement envisages the formation of "framework for extradition of persons who are wanted for criminal prosecution and verdict execution," Maxim Travnikov, a deputy minister of justice, said at the State Duma session. An extradition request may be sent for any person committing a crime punishable by a prison term of at least one year.
"As of today, there is one person wanted in Russia and whose extradition has been requested with Panama. He is now serving his term in that country," Travnikov added.
