Raja Munirah

This is a little diversion on issues regarding children. It is about a 22-year Malaysian lass, caught for having 690 grammes of syabu at Narita Airport, Tokyo.

The lass, Raja Munirah, a mass communication student in Malaysia, claims she was 'duped' by another person who convinced her to carry the luggage containing the syabu. Read the NST story here. Whether she is guilty or otherwise is a separate issue. But the Malaysian mission in Tokyo should do everything within its means to provide financial, legal and emotional assistance to Raja Munirah. She is a Malaysian, so go help her. Malaysians must not be abandoned.
