By Deborah McAleese

Michaella McCollum has arranged to meet up with fellow cocaine smuggler Kaouthar Essafi, who she befriended in prison.

McCollum and Essafi spent the past few months enjoying their freedom partying together in the Peruvian capital of Lima.

While McCollum has been allowed to return home, Dutch national Essafi is awaiting permission to return to the Netherlands. Once she is free to leave the pair have arranged to meet somewhere in Europe.

In a message to McCollum on Facebook at the weekend Essafi wrote : "Enjoy ur lost time with ur family.. leave ur past behind and start a new chapter using al the experiences u have learned from.. it wasn't easy.. but we did manage to enjoy some unforgettable moments.. see u soon in europe kyla".
