2 monthes ago   |   By

JAKARTA, Indonesia - To the Indonesian government, the 39-year-old factory worker and globe-trotting Polish traveller is a danger to the state, a man who plotted with shadowy gunmen to foment revolt in isolated eastern jungles.
But to his supporters, Jakub Skrzypski is just an idealistic tourist with no money to his name, a man with an oddball combination of sympathies for right-wing and liberation causes. Even Indonesian police say it's unlikely Skrzypski could have arranged the arms deal they say he promised to make with rebels.
But Skrzypski, who is charged with treason, still faces up...

Van Kralingen is one of two lawyers, Paul Scott the other, who represent families and friends of the victims of health care serial killer Elizabeth Wettlaufer.
Van Kralingen was speaking about Arpad Horvath, a wonderful Hungarian immigrant who started his own tool-and-die company and loved his adopted country with all his big heart.
But though he was 75, frail and with dementia, the old man...
