Margo Kingston defends Indonesian justice:
All the anger around against the Indonesian legal system – at least Ms Corby was charged, had a lawyer and went to Court, which is better than our system managed with Cornelia [Rau].
Better? Let’s compare …
Case one: Rau walked out of a Sydney psychiatric hospital last year and later turned up in Queensland claiming to be an illegal immigrant from Germany. She was subsequently admitted to a Brisbane hospital and examined by a psychiatrist who, as Andrew Bolt reported, cleared her of mental illness. Rau was then relocated to the Baxter detention centre where her condition worsened, after which she was placed in an Adelaide psych hospital. Rau repeatedly provided false names to officials seeking to identify her. Earlier this month Rau spoke at a press conference before being re-admitted to Adelaide’s Glenside Hospital for further treatment.
Case two: Schapelle Corby was jailed for twenty years.
