Is there something in the political water these days? First Laura Ling and Euna Lee are freed and now the 20-year old convicted of drug smuggling. Well she hasn't been pardoned by her home country. We know she won't be returning to Laos anytime soon!
The reason why the Laotian government let her go is due to her pregnancy. She's expected to give birth next month. There was speculation that she had been raped while in custody. According to the Mirror UK she was impregnated by fellow British prisoner John Watson, also serving a life sentence in Laos.
She is also expected to serve the remainder of her prison term in the UK, but who knows what will happen? Lee and Ling were kept in solitary confinement under 24/7 guard coverage and not sent to the work camp. Perhaps Ms. Orobator will be pardoned and released as well.
