A New Zealander has been arrested in Bali on drugs related
charges and consular support is being offered.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it was aware
of the arrest.
"The Consul from the New Zealand Embassy in Jakarta is
providing consular support and has visited the New Zealander.
The Embassy's role is to monitor the New Zealander's welfare
and ensure that they have the same rights as other detainees
in Indonesia," the ministry said in a statement.
"As is the case with all hearings involving New Zealand
citizens, the Ministry cannot comment on the investigation or
interfere in the judicial proceedings of another country.
Neither the individual nor their family wishes to speak to
media and have asked that their privacy be respected."
The woman was found with quantities of methamphetamine and
marijuana, 3 News reported local media as saying.
It is believed she had been living in Australia.
