Just on the news that the nine Australians facing charges of drug trafficking from Bali to back to Australia will face the death penalty if found gulity which is almost a near certainty. Three of them are from Brisbane so I expect it to be on the front page/s of the local papers up here.
They plead their innocence and yet a couple of them claim they didn't know what it was and claim they were forced to do it or their families would be murdered (perhaps more of a scare tatic?) but it doesn't quite wash with me.
They have also mentioned in articles about the case how some of the ring leaders in this went up two of the suspects in a Brisbane nightclub and tricked them into agreeing by going to Bali and to earn some cash but not actually saying what it was. They also mentioned how one of the ringleaders said he would take care of everything (ie passports) and if this sounded too good to be true, he shouted them alcohlic drinks and make them more likely to say yes and which they did. I feel sorry for some of the parents who didn't even know about what was happening (and in some cases didn't even know their son/s were in Bali) but less for the 9 arrested.
