Albania has started the implementation of the deal reached with the UK for the repatriation of Albanian inmates who are serving prison sentences in Great Britain.

This follows the signing of a joint communiqué between PM Edi Rama and the UK PM, Rishi Sunak in December 2022.

The Ministry of Justice announced that 200 Albanian inmates who are in British prisons will be repatriated in the next two years to serve the remainder of their sentence in Albania.

Under the deal, British authorities will pay the expenses for these inmates during the time they serve in Albania and on the other hand, Albanian authorities will be able to make more investments and further improve the penitentiary system.
