The government signed an extradition treaty with Singapore in Bintan, Riau Islands, yesterday. The Minister of Law and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly, mentioned that the settlement was eventually signed right after the Indonesian govt had began functioning on it 24 several years in the past. “Just after heading by a extremely long method, the Indonesia-Singapore extradition settlement can finally be executed,” he explained.
Yasonna explained the two nations agreed to extradite anyone who has to endure a prosecution, trial, or punishment for a criminal act. He stated the extradition settlement would squeeze criminals in Indonesia who normally flee to Singapore. “This extradition arrangement will generate a deterrence influence for criminals in Indonesia and Singapore,” he stated.
