More than 4,300 people are considered missing in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Chechnya since 1994
The Russian Federation Council has ratified the Council of Europe’s Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and the Additional Protocol. The document’s goal is to create an international legal base to regulate the transfer of sentenced persons to serve their sentences within their own societies, the head of the international policy committee, Mikhail Margelov, said. The Conventions defines conditions for transfer, requests, replies and provision of supporting documents. Under the document a sentenced person may be transferred only if the transfer is consented to by the sentenced person or, where in view of his age or his physical or mental condition one of the two states considers it necessary, by the sentenced person’s legal representative. Margelov forecasts that 30 sentenced Russian citizens will be transferred to Russia on the average, while Russia will transfer 70 foreign citizens. Russia signed the Convention in Strasbourg on March 21, 1983. The State Duma ratified it on July 6.
