Russian authorities have decided to accuse the Israeli young woman of drug trafficking and not only possession of drugs, although this is a quantity that is generally considered to be self-employed.

"Four months ago she was at a detention center, a facility with 30 girls in a large courtroom, then moved to another prison," the mother describes. "The detention hearing was over in ten minutes. They didn't let me and Naama approach, we spoke a few sentences and she was handcuffed to the police station."

The Foreign Ministry told 12 News that they know and handle the issue. The Israeli Consul in Moscow, Yaffe Eloyevsky, is responsible for the detention and concern for humanitarian services.

"In general, the Foreign Ministry, through its diplomatic missions abroad, is not allowed to intervene in the investigative and trial proceedings of another sovereign state, as is the case here," the ministry said. "Foreign Ministry involvement is in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and involvement can only be on a humanitarian basis."

On Tuesday, her trial is expected to start, and according to reports, the attorneys are rather optimistic and claim to have evidence that she did not escape.
