Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity tried finding out online what nationalities and how many are in PI prisons without success.  Anybody have any stats?

I was thinking shouldn't there be at least 3 or 4 Aussies from articles on LinC alone in the past 3-4 months?  ; p

Oh the difference a few years makes :(

    I thought it would have been a lot higher considering the amount of foreigners living in the Philippines... I am sure the number of foreigners murdered in the Philippines would be a lot higher than that.

I would say the numbers reported are prison and not include jails. just in cebu city jail there was one Australian locked up in 2012 with other foreigners . now there is still one Australian one from UK one from USA one from Denmark two from Korea. all on no bail charges for cases that most likely will be dismissed.
