A work of fiction,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hell's Prisoner: The Shocking True Story Of An Innocent Man Jailed For Eleven Years In Indonesia's Most Notorious Prisons (Paperback)
I have no doubt the author was in jail but the rest of his story is farfetched. For example, after saving prisinors from a cholera outbreak he fights with a group of assassins, he is killed and comes back to life again in a morgue!
He claims to have translated legal documents into Indonesian and distributed them (thereby becoming a hero of a prison uprising). However he can't even spell the name of the prison he was in and there are many errors in his Indonesian language.
Also, he claimed to be innocent but freely admits travelling with false documents and using various aliases.
You're better off reading Hotel K by Kathryn Bonella for a more accurate depiction of Indonesian prisons.
