Spokesperson Hang said: “We are glad that Vietnamese citizen Doan Thi Huong has been released and reunited with her family in Vietnam.”
“This outcome was contributed by continuous efforts of the Government, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, relevant agencies and the Bar Federation of Vietnam as well as the Malaysian lawyers to protect Doan Thi Huong,” she said.
“We also acknowledge positive actions toward this end taken by the Malaysian relevant authorities in the recent time,” she added.
Huong was set free on the morning of May 3. She took a flight from Kuala Lumpur Airport afterwards and arrived at Hanoi’s Noi Bai airport the same day.
