Corby is facing the prospect of spending life in a squalid Indonesian jail if found guilty of trying to smuggle marijuana into Bali.
I voted for the story but the source is racist and biased
Quit 'pumping' your own stories!
I said it was racist and that is definitive!
END of story
You come across like a $2 dollar shoe salesman-
You can't force fit this stuff.
The story (and source) both point out that because this Aussie chick is 'white' she gets treated different. Well so what?
She also (ALSO) is a foreign national and quickly got the word out.
She was probably a mule (knowingly or not) and got busted. She will do long term jail for this.
Did you even read any of the story?
Indonesia, on the other, approaches the matter in line with its neighbors in a region that has become the heart of darkness for drug policy. Southeast Asia is a hotbed of virulent prohibitionism, with a full-blown drug hysteria and death squads in the Philippines, a murderous war on drug users and dealers in Thailand, and ready resort to execution for even small-time drug trafficking offenses in Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as Singapore.
Corby's fate now rests with the Indonesian judges. Although prosecutors recommended life in prison, the judges could still sentence her to death, to life, or some set term of years in prison if they decide she is guilty. According to wire service reports, Indonesian legal observers expect her to be found guilty and sentenced to a lengthy prison sentence. If that is the case, her lawyers have vowed to appeal.
