Ammon News - Four international agreements between Jordan and Ukraine entered into force as of early May.

A statement issued on Tuesday by the Ukrainian embassy in Amman said that Jordan and Ukraine will now have more tools for effective legal cooperation.

In early May, four intergovernmental agreements between Ukraine and Jordan entered into force, regulating a number of issues related to consular cooperation. These are: the Agreement on Mutual Legal Assistance in Civil Matters, which entered into force on 14 May, the Agreement on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons, entered into force on 7 May, the Agreement on the Extradition of Offenders, in force since 13 May, and the Agreement on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, which entered into force on 14 May, Petra reported.

These documents were signed during the visit of the Minister of Justice of Jordan to Ukraine in November 2019 and ratified by the parliaments of both countries in late 2020 and early 2021.

The entry into force of these agreements allows to regulate the issues of mutual international cooperation in civil and criminal cases, extradition and transfer of convicted persons, according to Petra.

Further implementation of these agreements creates conditions for the widest mutual cooperation of the relevant authorities of both states during the trial of civil cases, investigation and trial of criminal cases. These documents will provide the possibility of extradition of persons accused or convicted of crimes for criminal prosecution or for the execution of a sentence and the transfer of convicted persons to serve their sentences in the state of their citizenship.
