Description - Bali 9 by Madonna King

When a plan goes badly wrong, nine Australians pay a heavy price On 17 April 2005, nine young Australians were arrested in Bali on charges of drug trafficking. Known as the 'Bali 9', some members received the death penalty for their crimes; others are serving lengthy jail sentences. Journalists Cindy Wockner and Madonna King, who were present at the trials and sentencing, have used their investigative skills to piece together the whole story, from arrest to jail to the harrowing final journey. With the co-operation of several family members of the Bali 9, they explore the histories of the nine to uncover why these young people would take such a perilous risk. they also look at the controversial role of the Australian Federal Police. A compelling, clear-eyed portrait of an unforgettable chapter in Australia's history, Bali 9 features details and photographs from the trials. It also serves as a chilling warning to all parents: this could be your child. With ring-leaders Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran about to face a firing squad after being denied presidential pardons, the story of the Bali 9 is current, compelling and impossible to turn away from.
