its a pity on these Indians , they have been punished enough already , and they are not smugglers or people with crime background , so as a first time offenders they should be let off with some condition or fine . Indian government should take an upper hand to solve these issues with a proper channel from human rights . i wish these 21 Indian citizens come out soon , my support to all their family and well wishers . this one is for the familys .... god bless and give courage to all.

A speedy and fair trail is the right of every detainee. Moreover it is a civil offence (if proved). First time offenders are usually let off with a fine and a warning. The punishment should be in proportion to the crime. It seems that the Chinese are trying to make an example and hence being overly harsh to these detainees. India is also seen as a weak and irresolute country by the Chinese The Indian government must do everything to get the release of our citizens. It must approach the international human rights organisations like Amnesty International and other international forums to secure the release of these Indians.It is a shame that the entire diamond community has not risen to force the Indian Government to procure their speedy trial and release.

They are smugglers and broke the law...so did who send then to the mission..This delegation have to be careful that they don't get themselves on a Chinese jail to! What would be more than fair ! You break the laws you must pay for it !
