Gov’t approves draft treaty with China on transfer of convicts

Published on

The government on Thursday approved in a memorandum the negotiation of a treaty between Romania and China on the transfer of convicted persons.

„The memorandum proposes a draft treaty drawn up by Romania on the transfer of convicts that is to be sent to China for a counterproposal. This co-operation document offers the possibility for final convicts to serve their sentence in their social environment of origin, thus favouring the social reintegration of the convicts,” according to a press statement released by the government.

The draft Romanian treaty includes provisions regarding the conditions under which the transfer can be granted, the necessary documents, as well as the effects of the transfer on both the sentencing and executing states.

On this subject, government spokesman Mihai Constantin on Thursday told a news conference at the Government House that, at the moment, the management of possible transfers of convicts between Romania and China is done under legislation from 1991 and 1994 or 1996, so „some of them outdated.”
