Arianne's Mother Jailed!

This is a revelation that even we didn't know about. In this week's New Idea magazine, Annette Caoili, mother of Arianne Caoili, tells readers that she was once imprisoned in a Manila jail. The charges, later proven to be false, were apparently for heroin trafficking. The story is so unbelievable that it's like reading a spy thriller. Take this for example:

Every week the military police would blindfold me and take me to an underground room. They would shine a spotlight in my face and ask me questions, but I didn't know what they were talking about.

To make matters worse, Annette found that she had fallen pregnant to a Filipino boyfriend (who, apparently overwhelmed by all that drama, left the Australian). This next account is quite possibly the most shocking revelation. Annette aborted the pregnancy!

Abortions were illegal, so the only person I could find ran a horrible backyard clinic. There was no anaesthetic, it was horrendous.

Nearly one year after she was arrested, Annette was eventually acquitted of all charges and her case thrown out on 16 December 1980. She travelled to RP apparently to celebrate her overcoming something called Guillan-Barre Syndrome.
