Judith said ‘tell someone who cares’ and I concur. According to DFAT (smarttraveller website)
Each year around 1,000 Australians are arrested overseas and more than 250 are in prisons overseas at any one time.
Yet this one person seems to be stealing the oxygen from others who are on death row. The NSW Council for Civil Liberties publishes a list of those Australians executed or on death row. Corby should be thankful to be released after serving less than 1/2 the time for her crime.
As for a so-called telemovie – really who could watch the following: a woman goes to Bali with a stash of marijuana and gets caught. She is convicted, sentenced to 20 years and serves 10 boring years in jail. Is that really the basis of a gripping movie? Will it show the daily drudgery, with the occasional change as the latest appeal is being heard?
Move on, nothing of interest here.
I would be much more interested in the story of Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu who was arrested on 5 July 2009, pleaded guilty on 29 March 2010 to stealing commercial secrets and receiving bribes, and sentenced to 10 years in jail. At least that story has a bit of intrigue.
