A solicitor for a woman accused of trying to smuggle £1.5 million worth of cocaine said he intends to discuss her case with police in Peru today.
Human rights lawyer Peter Madden plans to go to a police holding centre in Lima where Michaella McCollum Connolly and co-accused Melissa Reid are being detained.
In a statement released last night through his Belfast-based firm, Mr Madden said he would not be commenting on the case until after the meeting.
Melissa Reid and Michaela McCollum appeared in court in Lima, but it is unclear whether they have been charged, their lawyer said.
Two women accused of smuggling 12kg of cocaine into Peru could face up to three years in custody and a maximum of 25 years in prison.
A British woman accused of drug trafficking in Peru said she and her friend "were not smuggling for money, we were smuggling for our lives."
