Indonesia’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Retno Marsudi (pictured) has ensured that legal assistance was provided to a female Indonesian raped by a Nigerian national in Cambodia.
The 22-year-old woman became a victim when she traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia on May 3.
“Indonesian Embassy (KBRI) in Phnom Penh immediately responded and got access to the victim. We took care of everything and the victim went back to Indonesia,” Retno said in Jakarta on Friday, June 9.
The perpetrator named Esin Nyong John (38) was arrested in Sok Raam, Siem Reap, a day after the rape.
Retno, without revealing the name or the initial of the victim, ordered her subordinates to monitor the legal process of Esin.
The monitoring is part of KBRI’s responsibility in the context of citizen protection.
