The moral of the story surely is before going to work in another country make sure you read the do’s and don’ts.

I remember so well working in Saudi where many expats made their own booze and when they got caught and thrown in jail they’d complain that their human rights had been denied.

I’m sure Griner will enjoy her new surroundings and Russian jail food. Putin apparently has the final call on whether or not she should be exchanged but I can’t see it happening anytime soon.

Yes it’s illegal, but 9 years in a penal colony for less than a gram of cannabis oil is way over excessive by any count.

My uncle worked over there for a bit as a private aircraft engineer. They used to brew their own stuff in the compound but it never left the site.
