PETALING JAYA - The Malaysian Government is liaising with British authorities on the rescue of a 69-year-old Malaysian woman who was kept as a slave with two others for 30 years in London's Lambeth district.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said Wisma Putra was seeking details.
"We don't have many details now. We will disclose more information as we get it," he said when contacted yesterday.
The Malaysian High Commission in London has also offered to help British police in its investigations.
An official said the high commission had contacted Freedom Charity and British police.
"We are still waiting and ready to extend any help required," he added in a telephone interview.
The official said the high commission had only found out about the matter via press reports.
"We have yet to meet or speak to the woman,'' he said, adding that there was no information on where she was being kept.
Details regarding the case continue to be sparse, with British police being tightlipped on the rescue of the three women.
The Malaysian woman, who has not been identified, was rescued along with a 30-year-old British woman and 57-year-old Irish woman on Oct 25.
The rescued women are all "highly traumatised" and are currently being looked after in a safe location. The address of the house where the crime took place is still unknown.
