12. Appeals court? Perhaps "Appeals Junta" is more apt...
If the trial took 2 whole hours, the appeal should be done during a lunch break, or, perhaps nap time. This is the country that has death on the books for ANY drug possession, they cane you for spitting, its like Stalinist Russia but, without the rules. The only chance I think is for the Australian Government to come down on them hard. It isn't even justice, this was literally a joke.

At least allow the woman to present a defense, not have the judges simply wave their hands and dismiss her witnesses before they even could speak! The more I think about it, the more I like our flawed system of justice. And I'll be 100% honest, I would MUCH rather be in Guantanamo Bay serving 20 years than be in an Indonesian prison. This woman's life may well be over. No kidding. 20 years in an Indonesian Prison. If she isn't brought home, she will die in Indonesia. I hate to say this, but, I doubt she'd survive much more than a year or two.
