Hi Tam
No offence taken. If I have helped convince one person that there is at least a possibility that she did not commit the crime then I have done my bit. Many people are so strongly against drugs that they would rather see a thousand innocent persons convicted than that a single guilty person go free. That is a moral question to be decided.
Now for the hard part, how to convince enough people in Indonesia!
That won't be easy, even while the trial was in progress a group of people were protesting around the courthouse demanding the death penalty. Australians have been unpopular in Indonesia since we finally made an attempt to prevent the slaughter of the East Timorese.
Time may now be on the side of Schapelle. The continuing investigation into criminal activity at Australian airports may reveal the truth of what happened. Considering that she still faces a possible death sentence after the appeal, the investigations ought to have the same priority as a murder investigation.
