Menteri Luar, Datuk Anifah Aman mengesahkan bahawa pegawai waran 2 Muhammad Rizalman Ismail akan diekstradisi ke New Zealand berkaitan tuduhan terhadapnya.

Anifah mengesahkannya kepada Malaysiakini melalui SMS petang ini.

Sementara itu, Wisma Putra dalam satu kenyataan berkata, kerajaan Malaysia memutuskan untuk menghantar balik Rizalman ke New Zealand, untuk membantu penyiasatan terhadap tuduhan pecah rumah dan serangan dengan niat untuk merogol.

Menurutnya, Rizalman akan diiringi seorang pegawai kanan tentera dari Kementerian Pertahanan.

Keputusan ini disampaikan oleh Anifah kepada rakan sejawatnya, Menteri Luar New Zealand, Murray McCully, petang ini.

Menurut kenyataan itu lagi, kerajaan Malaysia berpendapat bahawa keputusan itu akan memberi peluang bagi Rizalman untuk bekerjasama sepenuhnya dan membantu pihak berkuasa New Zealand dalam siasatan yang sedang dijalankan mengenai dakwaan terhadapnya.

"Dalam hal ini, prinsip undang-undang bahawa seseorang itu dianggap tidak bersalah sehingga dibuktikan bersalah, perlu digunapakai kepada Rizalman.

"Kerajaan Malaysia akan menyediakan bantuan guaman kepada Muhammad Rizalman jika perlu," tambahnya.

Menurut kenyataan itu lagi, Malaysia mempunyai keyakinan penuh terhadap sistem perundangan New Zealand.

Katanya, ia juga berkeyakinan penuh bahawa Rizalman akan diberi layanan yang adil dan secara bermaruah sebagaimana yang diperuntukkan di bawah undang-undang.

Rizalman to be sent back to NZ...

Malaysian diplomatic attache Muhammad Rizalman Ismail will be sent to New Zealand in connection with the sexual assault and burglary charges against him.

Foreign Minister Anifah Aman confirmed this in a text message to Malaysiakini this evening.

The decision comes amid widespread calls for the military personnel, who was attached with the Malaysian High Commission in Wellington, to be extradited to New Zealand.

Rizalman, 38, who is currently in Malaysia, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman.

In a statement, the Malaysian Foreign Ministry said the decision has been conveyed to New Zealand's Foreign Minister Murray McCully (left).

The ministry also said that it would provide "legal assistance" to Rizalman if "necessary".

"Malaysia has complete faith in the New Zealand legal system and has full confidence that Rizalman will be given fair treatment with dignity as provided under the law," it added.

According to the statement, Rizalman is being sent back to "assist in investigations".

The following is the Foreign Ministry's statement in full:  


"The Government of Malaysia has decided to send back to New Zealand, Second Warrant Officer Muhammad Rizalman Ismail, former Defence Staff Assistant at the High Commission of Malaysia in Wellington, to assist in the investigation for the charges of burglary and assault with intent to commit rape. Mr. Muhammad Rizalman will be accompanied by a Senior Military Officer from the Ministry of Defence.

This decision was conveyed by YB Dato' Sri Anifah Aman, Minister of Foreign Affairs to his counterpart, the Hon. Murray McCully, Minister for Foreign Affairs of New Zealand this afternoon.

The Malaysian Government is of the view that this decision will provide an opportunity for Mr. Muhammad Rizalman to cooperate fully and assist the New Zealand authorities in the on-going investigations on the allegations made against him.

In this regard, the legal principle that one is considered innocent until proven guilty should apply to Mr. Muhammad Rizalman. The Government of Malaysia will provide legal assistance to Mr. Muhammad Rizalman if necessary.

Malaysia has complete faith in the New Zealand legal system and has full confidence that Mr. Muhammad Rizalman will be given fair treatment with dignity as provided under the law.

The Government of Malaysia's decision is a clear testament of the excellent bilateral relations between Malaysia and New Zealand." - mk

Anwar urges Rizalman's extradiction to NZ...

Anwar Ibrahim said today he was appalled that Malaysia refused to send its diplomat, accused of sexual assault, back to New Zealand to face charges where the crime allegedly happened.

Speaking to online news portal stuff.co.nz, Anwar said not only were Malaysia's actions illogical, it also cast doubt if the use of diplomatic immunity to fish Muhammad Rizalman Ismail back home was a way to cover up government misconduct, as in the handling of the still missing MAS MH370.

“I am appalled that they had the audacity to suggest that an attempted rape and assault crime should be withdrawn on the basis of diplomatic immunity.

“I know how rotten the failure of the governance here is, but I cannot imagine that we can write to a different country and request the withdrawal of these criminal charges,” Anwar (right) is quoted as saying.

Rizalman was arrested in Wellington on May 9 after an alleged attack on a 21-year-old woman in her house last month.

The PKR leader said the Malaysian government should reconsider its position and let Rizalman face trial in New Zealand.

“We are dealing with New Zealand, there is no question about the independence and due process of the courts,” he said.

Witnesses, police officers and matters pertaining to the investigation are all based in New Zealand. As a result, people cannot expect an expeditious trial in the Malaysian courts, as required by due process.

Anwar added that many women's organisations had also been pestering him to do something.

They expressed their disgust and “protested vehemently” at the use of immunity for an offence of this nature, he said.- mk
