Ignorant island

Australia the villain in Japan's Corby case: expert:

Prof Wilson, Bond University's head of criminology, said cultural differences went to the extent where the four were not considered genuine tourists because they had not brought cameras to Australia.

He said Honda's failure to aggressively assert her innocence, which is deemed as culturally appropriate in Japan, was seen by the Australian court as a sign of guilt.

And now we are a Nation of terrorists. Big pat on the back, team.

So did Indonesia reserve their right to act pre-emptively, a la Howard Election '04?
