MOSCOW, April 6. /TASS/. Russia has suggested signing an extradition treaty with the Kingdom of Bahrain. A spokesperson for Russia’s Prosecutor-General’s Office Marina Gridnyova has told TASS that during its current two-day official visit to Bahrain a delegation of Russia’s prosecutor’s office led by Prosecutor-General Yury Chaika is due to meet Bahrain’s Prime Minister Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa.

According to Gridnyova, the two sides are planning to discuss bilateral cooperation in the legal sphere, including increasing the effectiveness of joint efforts in combating international crime. A bilateral extradition treaty, which is being prepared for signing, is among the issues under discussion. In addition to that, there’re plans of concluding a treaty on legal assistance in criminal cases.

The Memorandum on Cooperation with the Prosecutor-general’s office of the Kingdom of Bahrain signed on Monday and also contacts established during the meetings with the Minister of Justice, the prosecutor-general and chairman of the Supreme Court of Arbitration of the Kingdom of Bahrain create real opportunities for a new level of interaction between our two countries in the legal sphere, the Russian prosecutor’s office said.

During a visit to the United Arab Emirates on November 25 Yury Chaika and UAE’s Minister of Justice Sultan bin Saeed Al Badi signed the inter-state treaties on extradition and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters. Draft contracts at the expert level were agreed following three rounds of Russian-Emirati consultations in 2009, 2011 and 2014.

Under the Extradition Treaty, the parties undertake to extradite persons on request for criminal prosecution or execution of sentence for an extraditable offense.
