Kota Kinabalu: The Foreign Ministry will make an inquiry about the case of Sandakan's Cristina Anak Luke Niju, 22, who was arrested for drug trafficking in Hainan, China on April 29 this year but has yet to be charged.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said the ministry would find out how soon the girl would be charged.
"From this perspective, we can ask for the facts. I am also seeking the facts from our missions in China. For now, that is the least we can do for any Malaysian citizen in this situation," he said.
He added that his ministry provides consular services to Malaysians overseas.
The Consulate General of Malaysia from the Malaysia Consulate in Guangzhou, China had recently visited Cristina at the detention centre in Hainan.
Anifah was responding to Cristina's father who expressed the hope that the Minister would help expedite his daughter's case.
In April this year, she went missing from Politeknik Kuching, Sarawak, where she was pursuing a three-year Diploma in Business Studies, without the knowledge of Politeknik authorities and her parents.
On April 24, she reportedly flew to Kuala Lumpur from Kuching to meet a Nigerian, identified only as James, whom she befriended via an online social networking site.
Four days later, she contacted her roommate in Kuching to inform the latter that she and James were going to China for a business venture.
