The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KOTA ISKAN­DAR: Johor Umno in­tends to help a Malaysian fe­male drug mule who has been in Peru for the past seven years.

Shy­zlin Hata­man, 42, had served a four-year jail term in a Peru­vian cor­rec­tional fa­cil­ity and was fined 5,000 soles (RM6,450) for her in­volve­ment in a drug ring.

Umno li­ai­son com­mit­tee sec­re­tary Datuk Md Jais Sar­day said the party would do its best to as­sist Shy­zlin.

He said he would con­tact Wisma Pu­tra to seek ad­vice on bring­ing her home.

The for­mer kinder­garten teacher was de­tained in the Peru­vian cap­i­tal of Lima in May 2010 for car­ry­ing 3.83kg of drugs from Is­tan­bul.

Ac­cord­ing to a lo­cal daily, Shy­zlin, who was now liv­ing in a church, suf­fered from var­i­ous ill­nesses.

It was also re­ported that she was un­able to re­turn on her own as she could not af­ford a flight ticket. – Ber­nama
