... There is a persistent calumny here that says it's based on "guilty until proven innocent". That is completely untrue, there is a presumption of innocence....
That's interesting. Then why haven't the more "intelligent" media pointed this out, if it's true? I've heard that again & again ...
Oh, I haven't heard that - I DID hear an expert type person pointing out that the Indonesian system is much better since getting rid of Suharto, and ought to be respected. It just seems weird to us, no - with judges reading books and such. Though they often look awfully damn sleepy here in Oz!
I think the Bali nine look a lot more guilty - what with stuff stuck to their bodies and all!!! I wonder, too, if we are still racist enough to not be so worried about Asian Australians? I would not put it past us.
I so hope the poor woman isn't innocent. That is horrid to imagine.
