KUWAIT, May 28 (KUNA) — The Ministry of Interior has turned over 47 prison inmates from Iran, serving sentences in Kuwaiti correctional facilities, to Iranian authorities, a ministry press statement said on Saturday.
This step has been taken in implementation of a bilateral agreement for prisoner exchange between Kuwait and Iran, said the statement.
