Assistance To Malaysian Citizens Arrested / Detained By Local Authorities Abroad


The Government of countries who is a party to the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations 1963 has a responsibility to inform the Government of other party countries of the arrest / detention of its citizen as soon as it is made. However, this obligation is not always observed due to problems in communication, or there are cases where the arrested person does not want his/her Government to be informed.

In cases where the Embassy of Malaysia Zagreb is informed of the arrest / detention of a Malaysian citizen, the Embassy will convey the information to the family / next of kin.

The law of the particular country where a Malaysian is arrested / detained is supreme and has to be obeyed and respected. International rules and customs dictate that consular assistance from a foreign mission cannot override the law and regulations of the particular country.

The Embassy of Malaysia, Zagreb will assist to the greatest extent possible any Malaysian Citizen arrested / detained.  However, the form of assistance depends on what is allowed by the host country authorities. Therefore, Malaysians intending to go abroad are advised to behave in a proper manner so as to avoid any problems with foreign local authorities.
