Big difference

Thomas McCosker is a Victorian man sentenced to two years’ jail in Fiji for having consensual sex with a man. Sodomy is a crime in Fiji and yet the injustice of this case has been virtually ignored in Australia.

The difference to the Schapelle Corby case is telling. The Australian government has consistently been seen to be doing something for Corby – the effectiveness is another matter – while McCosker has been left out to dry. His supposed “crime” is undoubtedly a factor.
