Astana, December 15, 2017. The Ministry of Justice of the People's Republic of China granted the request of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Kazakhstan to transfer our citizen, convicted in China, for further serving his sentence in his homeland.
In 2010, our national was found guilty by the Chinese verdict for committing smuggling of heroin and was sentenced to life imprisonment. Then the term of imprisonment was reduced to 18 years.
Later, the Kazakhstani national made a petition to the Prosecutor General's Office of Kazakhstan with a request to transfer him to homeland for further punishment.
Today, he was escorted from China to Kazakhstan and placed in a temporary detention center of Astana.
It should be noted that this has been possible as a result of the agreements of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Kazakhstan with the Chinese authorities in the sphere of international cooperation.
