Can Indonesia Revive the Extradition Treaty with Singapore?


The government signed an extradition treaty with Singapore in Bintan, Riau Islands, yesterday. The Minister of Law and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly, said that the agreement was finally signed after the Indonesian government had started working on it 24 years ago. "After going through a very long process, the Indonesia-Singapore extradition agreement can finally be implemented," he said.

Yasonna said the two countries agreed to extradite anyone who has to undergo a prosecution, trial, or punishment for a criminal act. He said the extradition agreement would squeeze criminals in Indonesia who usually flee to Singapore. "This extradition agreement will create a deterrence effect for criminals in Indonesia and Singapore," he said.
