DUSHANBE, March 28, 2016, Asia-Plus – The board (Shuro) of Tajikistan’s lower house (Majlisi Namoyandagon) of parliament discussed the issue of ratification of a treaty between Tajikistan and Pakistan on extradition at a March 28 meeting, presided over by its head, Shukurjon Zuhurov.

We will recall that Tajik President Emomali Rahmon and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif witnessed the signing of the treaty at a ceremony held at the PM House in Islamabad on November 12, 2015.  The extradition treaty was signed by Tajik Interior Minister Ramazon Rahimzoda and Pakistani Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz.

Muhammadato Sultonov, a spokesman for the Majlisi Namoyandagon, says the board also discussed a protocol on making changes to a government-to-government agreement between Tajikistan and Kazakhstan on labor activity and protection of rights of labor migrants.

The board members also discussed amendments proposed to the country’s laws on public finance, licensing system, and the rules and conditions of holding of a suspect and a defendant in custody, Sultonov said.
