Why didn't she confide in the Thai authorities that her son's life is in danger?

I don't know, she could be just making it all up or could be a really scared woman who feared that going to the authorities would surely get her son killed.


Whatever the reason, I hope she doesn't face the death penalty.

tough one - the old bird doesn't fit the bill of public enemy #1 - but then they rarely do.

question is not is she guilty of smuggling drugs - its is she guilty of knowingly smuggling illegal substances.

the law there does not differentiate though i fear.

is it right to condemn someone to death for acting out of fear, naivity, stupidity ?

At least she'll lose some weight then the fat munter.

Guilty.

If she somehow thinks that ignorance of the law will get her off the hook, alas she's even more stupid than she looks. Guilty.

Yes. She's not too naive or stupid to know that smuggling is illegal (whether money, drugs or whatever else she "thought" might be in the suitcase) or to find out that smuggling carries a death sentence in places like Indonesia.

Guilty.

Probably guilty.

If you can't keep your kids out of jail, you probably can't keep yourself out.

Guilty, though as she is a brit they will probably spare her life and she will live out her existence as a raving lesbian in a Shit hole jail.

Ag she was from the North East so being guilty of that is enough for 20 years in an Indonesian jail, surely. Finding the coke was just the icing on the cake.
She must be thick as shite. Runs off to live in a mud hut in India with the chipati maker from a curry house in the Boro and her Kids are all scum and jail birds. And my is it ugly.

A new angle.............

Even if you buy her story 100 pct, would you do what she did just for her son? I don't believe in this 'blood is thicker than water' nonsense.

"You did WHAT, son??? You're on your own......"
