Potential extradition of Malaysian diplomat

Potential extradition of Malaysian diplomat
Wednesday, 2 July 2014 - 4:37pm

National News
To be attributed to Superintendent Sam Hoyle, Wellington District Police Commander:
Police are continuing to support the victim in this case. There are currently two charges before the court, for burglary and assault with intent to rape, and there are warrants to arrest in relation to both those charges.

Police are continuing to work with Crown Law and MFAT to consider all the options which would achieve the best outcome for the victim and for justice. This includes pursuing extradition and Police are working with Crown Law and MFAT to establish the legal foundation for this. Given the complexities of this case, this process will take some time to work through and we will keep the victim updated regularly as things are progressed.

As the charges are still currently before the court, and there is potential that the circumstances of the offending could be played out under a range of jurisdictions, it is not appropriate for any comment to be made publicly about the circumstances of the offences.
