  • Kay Danes Appearance on Chanel 10 Morning Program

    Network Ten's morning program, 9am with David & Kim hosted by David Reyne and Kim Watkins.

    International Human Rights Advocate, Kay Danes, will be appearing on the morning program with the father of an Australian teenager who rang her mother to say she was sleeping over at a friend's house when in actual fact, she was bound for Hong Kong. Rachel ended up in a nightmare that now finds her serving a prison sentence for drug trafficking. At her a trial, she pleaded guilty but there was evidence she'd got cold feet and wasn't going to swallow the 114 packages of heroin worth AUD$200 each. She was sentenced by the Hong Kong judge; 10 years, eight months.

    Nightmare in Laos

    A True story of a woman imprisoned in a communist gulag.
    by Kay Danes

    Sold internationally and recently released in all Australian Bookshops AUD$24.95 or online at

    Held hostage in a communist prison for 10 months, Kay Danes witnessed first hand the horrors of Phonthong prison; a gulag where people are held at the government's discretion for years on end, many times without ever being charged, and where the hope that one day their suffering will be revealed to the world is the only thing that keeps these forgotten victims alive.

    Nightmare in Laos is about losing everything but the support of family and friends, and realising that that is the most valuable thing any of us can have. It has drama, action, political intrigue, tension, sorrow and joy, and is about never giving up, and fighting for what you believe in. It is the realisation of every parent's worst fears - being taken away from your children and left in a place that seems alien and cruel, all for something you did not do.

    Danes ABC interview regarding Australian drug traffickers arrested in Hong Kong

    MP3 Audio Interview with F.P.S.S Advocate Kay Danes
    Three young Australians who've been convicted of heroin smuggling in Hong Kong, have each been sentenced to a decade in prison and now have 28 days in which to lodge an appeal. Two of the traffickers were under the age of 18 when they were arrested in a Hong Kong hotel room in April last year in possession of 700 grams of heroin. And criticism has now been levelled at the New South Wales and Australian Federal Police for alerting local authorities to the heroin plot, instead of waiting to arrest the Australians once they returned home.
