AMMONNEWS - The Ukrainian Parliament has ratified four agreements with Jordan, which were signed during the official visit of Minister of Justice, Dr. Bassam Talhouni, to Kiev late last year.

In a press statement issued on Saturday, the Ukrainian embassy in Amman said the endorsed agreements relate to judicial and legal cooperation, transfer of convicts, extradition of criminals and mutual legal assistance in civil and criminal matters.

With regard to the convicts, the embassy said encourages joint "effective" cooperation in the transfer of persons sentenced to "imprisonment" penalties to facilitate their rehabilitation and social integration, and the help the convicts to spend jail terms within their social environment.

As for the Agreement on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, the embassy said aims to prevent and combat crime, protect the rights and interests of the two countries' citizens, provide the largest amount of legal aid as stipulated by their respective national laws, and develop the joint cooperation relations.

In its statement, the embassy described the aforementioned agreement as "important," represented by providing legal aid in civil matters, in accordance with each country's national laws, on the basis of the principles of national sovereignty and justice.
