UAE approves India, Pakistan prisoner swaps

12 December, 2012

ABU DHABI: Hundreds of Indian and Pakistani prisoners will be able to serve their jail sentences in their home countries after the UAE cabinet approved a prisoner transfer agreement with the two countries.

Under the Transfer of Sentenced Persons Agreement, prisoners with a minimum of six months left to serve will be able to apply for the transfer but must not have a pending case against them. Inmates imprisoned for drug offences, murder and financial crimes will not be eligible.

Official estimates suggest that as many as 960 Indian and 800 Pakistani prisoners will be eligible for the transfer.

End.
