Abstract

Individuals detained in foreign prisons raise human rights issues of considerable importance, especially given what seems to be an apparent increase in cases involving Australian citizens arrested or imprisoned overseas. The case that generated most interest in this topic was that of Schapelle Corby, a beauty student from the Gold Coast, caught with 4.1kg of marijuana in her possession in Indonesia in 2004. Soon after, international drug enforcement efforts linked nine Australians to the alleged smuggling of 10.9kg of heroin out of Indonesia. Drug-related arrests of Australians continued and Tuong Van Nguyen, a young Australian, was executed in Singapore for trafficking heroin. More recently, was the case of Peter Lloyd, a foreign correspondent with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, who spent six months in prison in Singapore for possession of drugs. In Thailand, Australian author and teacher, Harry Nicolaides was imprisoned for five months for offending the royal family under lèse majesté provisions in the Thai criminal code. And another case this year involved Annice Smoel, a mother of four, who spent four nights in a Thai gaol for stealing a bar mat and allegedly insulting local police.
