Framework for Transfer of Sentenced Persons
The seventh United Nations Congress in 1985 adopted the Model Agreement on the Transfer of Foreign Prisoners on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders. Since the adaptation in 1985, many countries have arrived at bilateral and multilateral treaties. In 2003, the Repatriation of Prisoners Act was enacted to achieve the above purpose. A treaty between the countries should be signed with a mutual interest on the matter, to achieve the main objective of the Act.
