|Aussie nurse may hang if convicted
Australian Emma Louise L'aiguille is currently detained in Malaysia and could face the death penalty if found guilty. She denies any knowledge of the drugs that were found under the driver's seat of the vehicle she was driving. The incident occurred on July 17, 2012 but was only today that Ms L'Aiguille was formally charged.
She is represented by lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah who says 'She is completely depressed. She just does not understand how this can happen to her, when all she did was to drive a car, in the company of some people.' He added that 'She had no clue whatsoever about the drugs'.
L'Aiguille was arrested with Nigerian Anthony Ndidi Esikalam. One other Nigerian man escaped and police are currently searching for him.
