Extradition agreement between British and Albanian governments submitted to the Assembly

The agreement between the Albanian and the British government for the readmission of persons who are serving their sentences in prisons of the two countries or are illegal has been submitted to the Assembly.

The pact between the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Albania and the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, for the readmission of persons and the protocol implementing the agreement, was signed by the Minister of Interior, Bledi Çuçi and the British Minister, Priti Patel. It has been assessed by the British media as an achievement, as Albanians convicted of various crimes have filled prisons and are having a high cost of keeping them.

"The agreement provides for the verification and identification of citizens, subject to return / readmission, communicating any information about them, consulting the database only for the purpose of implementing this agreement," said the report provided by Gazeta Shqip.

Under the agreement, the costs will be borne by each party, in case of deportations, the transfer of prisoners from one state to another.

"This draft law aims to ratify the agreement between the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Albania and the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, for the readmission of persons and the protocol implementing the agreement, which sets out the rules and principles, on the basis of which the cooperation will be implemented, the cases of cooperation upon request, but also the cases of cooperation without request.
