In 2012, Paul Conibeer, a traveller, was jailed in Bali's infamous Kerobokan Prison - home of Lindsay Sandiford and a host of international travellers on death row for smuggling drugs. Paul's crime - a dispute over an unpaid hotel bill and his failure to "pay off' the right people in the Kuta Police system - saw him sentenced to almost 12 months in jail. In 'I Survived Kerbokan' Paul tells his harrowing story - describing how he slept on a tiled floor at Kuta Police Station for 60 days - before eventually being transferred to Kerobokan. Paul spent 300 days in Kerobokan, living in a stench-filled cell and coming into contact with a wide variety of prisoners - murderers, rapists, drug mules and the innocent, like himself - all just trying to survive. During these 300 days he: lived with 52 men in one cell; slept on a mattress on the floor with rats, cockroaches and ants, had no money to barter for food & water, constantly had to be watchful of his safety, and had a cellmate die in his arms from sickness. This is the story of how Paul survived and of the others he lived with for 12 months, and their stories of the terror of living in one of the most dangerous prisons in the world.… (more)
