The family of a Chinese foreign student, who was strangled six years ago in Burnaby, B.C. has come to Canada in search of justice.

The parents of Amanda Zhao, who was 20 at the time of her death, arrived in Vancouver Monday night. The family was invited to come to Canada from China by a coalition of federal and provincial New Democrats.

NDP MLA Jenny Kwan met the Zhao's at the airport.

"The family feels they have not received the answers they are seeking, which is seeking justice for their daughter," says Kwan.

Zhao was murdered in the Burnaby apartment she shared with another Chinese student.

Her boyfriend, Ang Li, was investigated for the murder after Zhao's body was found in a bag near Stave Lake in the Fraser Valley several weeks after she disappeared.

But Li fled back to China before being charged and the NDP politicians say jurisdictional disputes and the lack of an extradition treaty are standing in the way of justice. He is now reportedly living in a Chinese military compound with his father.

Zhao's family is expected to meet with members of the RCMP Wednesday, and the federal government. A memorial will be held at the Chinese Cultural Centre on October 10.
