Large Group of Iranian Prisoners Extradited from Kuwait

Based on an extradition treaty, 47 Iranian prisoners in the Persian Gulf state of Kuwait returned home to serve the rest of their sentences in Iran.

The extradition took place on the basis of a judicial agreement between Tehran and Kuwait City and diplomatic talks over the past two years, Iran’s Foreign Ministry announced.

The number of prisoners being simultaneously extradited to Iran marked the largest transfer of convicts to Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iran and Kuwait have already signed an extradition treaty, which allows Iranian prisoners in Kuwait and Kuwaiti inmates in Iran to return to their respective countries and complete their prison terms at home.
