Foreign Ministry official to help the arrested in Malaysia
According to Giorgi Tabatadze, the Foreign Ministry of Georgia consular department director, one official was sent to Malaysia to acquaint with the case of the arrested Georgians - RosBalt.
"It can't be ruled out that direct guilt of the women wouldn't be proved, and in this case their sentence would be mitigated. On November 2nd or 3rd the trial takes place, and after that we'll make a decision on extradition."
The two Georgian women were arrested and accused of transporting and selling drugs. One of them claimed to be an artist, but frames of her pictures were too heavy. Scanning revealed drugs inside.
One has already admitted her guilt and told local police the name of the person who had sold her drugs. Georgi Tugushi, the ombudsman of Georgia, demands the extradition of the two detained and intends to turn to international organisations.
