Locked Up Abroad: Busted in Bali

Australian Chris Parnell had no idea his world was about to be turned upside down when he was arrested for smuggling 12kgs of hashish. Claiming he had been set-up due to a corrupt police force, he was charged and sentenced to life in prison. After 11 years behind bars in a jail where knife fights were a daily event, and killing was a way of life, Parnell had only one thought, escape.

In this film, Chris tells his side of the story of how he ended up being banged up abroad in Bali, before finally being released in 1996.

    Half of this story is total fiction, what is the point in it? This is even worse than the Sandra Gregory one. He is guilty, sounds guilty, and then tells one story of total nonsense after another. People like him destroy lives, and have since made money off their embelishments of the truth. Absolute scum who deserves nothing in life but pain!

      @Chris, there is something wrong with you to write such a thing.

        NO! AnneMB! There is something surely wrong with ‘YOU’! How you can be so naive to believe that this guy is telling the truth, is preposterous! U must be related to this conman!

    If he was guilty he would have paid the money. He had principles though.
    We will never know if he knew what Doogie was upto all along though. I suspect he did.

    Wow! What one person can actually stand is unbelievable. How incredibly sad for this man. I hope he finds peace.
