26 Iranian prisoners to be extradited from Azerbaijan

Baku, Dec 22, IRNA – Head of consular affairs in Iran's embassy in Baku said 26 Iranian prisoners will be extradited from the Republic of Azerbaijan on Friday.

The prisoners will be extradited to Iran's judiciary officials at the two countries' zero point, Naser Mirjamali said.

Some 500 prisoners in 24 rounds have been extradited to Iran since an agreement with Azerbaijan was signed on transferring convicted people in 1999.

Most of these people had been arrested and imprisoned on charges related to illegal drugs, Mirjamali said adding that Iranian citizens who want to visit Azerbaijan should get informed on the country's regulations and laws on banned goods.
