And in other "Only in Australia..." news

Bali 'mules' sue federal police

    TWO of the Bali Nine accused drug smugglers are taking legal action against Australian police for tipping off Indonesian authorities about them.

[Via Top Stories]

    The pair, through their lawyers, claim the AFP provided assistance to the Indonesian police that led to their arrest, "which thereby exposed them to the prospect of the imposition of the death penalty".

Hmmm ... I would say that areeing to transport illegal goods in a country that has the death penalty exposed them in the first place. Surely my hard earned tax dollars shouldn't be wasted in this sort of legal rangling ??
