ARRESTS OF MALAYSIANS

Malaysian citizens in the Netherlands are subject to local law and judicial procedures, which differ significantly from those in Malaysia.

If you are arrested, you should ask the police to notify the Malaysian Embassy immediately at 070-350 6506 or 06-19007048 outside of office hours. You can also email us at consularthehague@kln.gov.my.

Under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, the Dutch Government is obliged to notify the Embassy expeditiously of the arrest or detention of a Malaysian citizen.

We are committed to assist you and your families within the limits of our authority and in accordance with local law.  We can assist imprisoned Malaysians contact their families, and can facilitate transfer of funds between the family and the detained, if necessary.
