Prisoners to serve their sentences in their home country

Pakistan and the UK signed on Thursday an agreement to restart exchange of prisoners.

The prisoners will now complete their sentences in their native countries and released there too. The reviewed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed by the British High Commissioner Thomas Drew and interior secretary.

The MoU is a reflection of the strong bond between the two countries, said the spokesperson of the British embassy.

On September 17, British Home Secretary Sajid Javed announced that two countries will be restarting their prisoner transfer agreement so that prisoners from both countries can serve sentences closer to their families.
