I’ve linked to a few posts about Samantha Orobator in the last week, breaking news as follows:
A PREGNANT British woman arrested for heroin smuggling in Laos has been told she must testify she was not raped in prison in order to escape the firing squad.
Samantha Orobator, who is five months pregnant, was arrested last August at Wattay airport in the capital Vientiane for trying to smuggle 680g of heroin.
The Londoner was not pregnant at the time of her arrest.
The deal offers Orobator repatriation to a UK prison instead of serving the rest of her time in Laos. The Laotian government is said to be “sensitive” to charges that she was raped in Phonthong prison.
“We don’t want the world to blame us,” Mr Nuanthasing said.
Asked who fathered the baby, Mr Nuanthasing said: “It is a mystery – maybe it is a baby from the sky.”
I hope Orobator does whatever she needs to do to get herself out of that hellhole. I also hope the world doesn’t forget her once she does. It’s heartening to see some MSM coverage of the story now.
