I do not believe in the death penalty so would not wish to see the British woman, Samantha Orobator, shot for smuggling heroin in to Laos.
It is said that because she is pregnant she will escape that fate.
She was arrested in August and is five-months pregnant so you do not have to be a mathematician, which I am not, to be able to work out that she entered that state whilst in jail.
As she and her lawyers have not cried rape – I presume her becoming pregnant was love or lust behind bars – or perhaps a cynical attempt to escape the firing squad.
I agree the 20-year-old must have a fair trial and access to a legal team.
If she is innocent – then she should go free in to the arms of her distraught mother in Dublin.
If she is guilty – then they should lock her up and throw away the key.
No death sentence and I say that in the full knowledge that the 1.5 lbs of heroin she is accused of smuggling would have spelt a death sentence – sooner or later – for an addict or addicts.
