Johannesburg - South Africa and Russia have signed a memorandum of understanding on legal matters, the justice ministry said on Wednesday.

Justice Minister Jeff Radebe and his Russian counterpart Alexander Konovalov endorsed the co-operation pact in Pretoria on Tuesday, ministry spokesperson Tlali Tlali said in a statement.

"This co-operation will create a platform on which both countries will be able to exchange ideas and share information and experiences in an effort to work towards finding lasting solutions to common challenges."

The two countries would also sign treaties soon, he said.

The memorandum was negotiated in Moscow on August 2 and 3.

    Oh GREAT!! now we have the wonderful model of Russian justice as a solution. Why don't we all just hand ourselves over to be locked up in a Gulag for expressing our freedom.

    Fantastic. Russia has the Death penalty, but otherwise they are at about the same competence level as our mob. I dont suppose we would take up the death penalty side of it though?
