Italy to send Moroccan convicts back home
Italy's justice minister has signed an agreement to have Moroccan convicts sent back home, in a move aimed at tackling chronic overcrowding in prisons.
Andrea Orlando signed the accord with his Moroccan counterpart, Mustafa Ramid, during a meeting in the Moroccan capital, Rabat.
The agreement will affect Moroccans who have received a definitive conviction in Italy and have been sentenced to a year or more in prison, the Italian justice ministry said in a statement.
