Umno to help M’sian drug mule in Peru return home
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
