President Bashar al-Assad issued Monday laws no (32) and (33) for the year 2022, which state ratifying the Mutual Legal Cooperation in criminal cases with Russia and the Extradition Agreement with it.
The ratification of the mutual legal assistance agreement on criminal matters stems from Syria’s keenness to enhance international legal cooperation in combating crime, persecuting perpetrators and providing the necessary evidence for issuing judicial verdicts in a way that guarantees human rights on an equal and fair basis.
While the Extradition Agreement is based on the principles of sovereignty and the necessity of implementing judicial decisions for the purpose of cooperation between Syria and Russia.
