The Centre’s June 7 decision to sign a bilateral prisoner transfer agreement with the Republic of Somalia has paved the way for the return of 118 Somali undertrials, lodged in Taloja jail since 2011, once their trial concludes.
Special public prosecutor Ranjeet Sangle said that the 118 alleged pirates will be sent back to Somalia under the Transfer of Prisoners Act, 2003, and will undergo the rest of their sentences in their country if they are convicted.
