National Assembly approved an extradition treaty with India on Tuesday,
allowing Cambodian nationals to be sent back to Cambodia if they have
received jail sentences in India of under six months, and Indian
citizens to be deported back to India instead of serving short jail
terms in Cambodia. There are currently no Cambodians in Indian prisons
and no Indians in Cambodians prison, but Cambodia has sentenced
citizens from 26 different nationalities to prison terms, said Nuth Sa
An, a secretary of state at the Ministry of Interior.
