PostSubject: British inmate must deny rape to live   May 11th 2009, 3:15 am

A British woman being held in a Laos jail has been told she will face the firing squad unless she denies she was raped in prison.

Samantha Orobator, who is five months pregnant, was arrested in the capital Vientiane in August for allegedly importing about 680g of heroin, the Daily Mail reports.

She was immediately transported to Phonthong prison, a squalid jail where guards are reportedly known to coerce female inmates into sex.

Laos authorities expect Orobator, who goes on trial this week, to testify that she was not raped inside the prison.

If she refuses, the London woman will be tried again after she has given birth — when she will not be immune from the death penalty because she is pregnant.

A Laos government spokesman appeared defensive when asked who fathered the baby, the newspaper reported.

"It is a mystery — maybe it is a baby from the sky," the spokesman, Kenthong Nuanthasing, said.

"We don't want the outside world to blame us."

Orobator is said to have already written a letter stating she has not been raped or had sex while she was in prison.

Her lawyer Anna Morris flew to Vientiane last week but has so far been refused access to see her, the newspaper said.

This absolutely disgusts me. I wonder why she is in jail in the first place. And also how many other women have been through what she is going through. How can they do this?!

It says she is in jail for "allegedly importing about 680g of heroin" and it also says "She was immediately transported to Phonthong prison, a squalid jail where guards are reportedly known to coerce female inmates into sex."

So sounds like she is definitely not the the first, nor the last to be treated so disgustingly, just bad luck for her she got pregnant because of it. I really dont get how they can do that! How can they make this a do or die situation! Where else was the girl meant to get pregnant?! If the time lines fit, then clearly there is no other explanation! "maybe its a baby from the sky" my rear end.

Its about time countries like this join the new century. This whole men superior thing is a joke. If the world were run by women it would be so much different!

It is pathethic that a government spokesman can get away with saying something as stupid as that!
