ABU DHABI, November 25. /TASS/. Russia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Tuesday signed interstate agreements on extradition and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters.
The documents were signed by Russian Prosecutor General Yury Chaika and UAE Justice Minister Sultan bin Saeed Al Badi. “Under the agreement, the parties oblige to extradite persons for bringing to trial or for enforcing a sentence for crimes leading to the extradition,” the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office spokesperson Marina Gridneva told TASS. Crimes should be punishable in both countries by imprisonment of no less than a year, she said. The draft agreements were coordinated after the three rounds of consultations in 2009, 2011 and 2014.
Chaika also called for signing an agreement on cooperation between the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office and the UAE Justice Ministry. Under the agreement, the parties will hold consultations in the field of extradition and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters. He said, "In the last years Russia and the UAE have stepped up the joint work on the extradition and mutual legal assistance. Earlier, we acted on the mutual basis. Now a legal base has been created."
Chaika also said the positive example of cooperation with the UAE "will facilitate the expansion of relations between Russia and the countries of the region". He noted "good relationship with the Kingdom of Bahrain, active cooperation with Qatar and possible contacts with Saudi Arabia".
