This is a letter was written by a 25-year-old Thai woman from an impoverished rural family, to her Japanese lawyer. In 1991, Gun and two Thai friends escaped from their captor by stabbing her to death. They fled with her bag, thinking that it contained their passports. They did not know that in the bag there was seven million yen ($80,000) in cash. They were arrested in the same night. In 1994 the prosecutor charged them with premeditated murder and they received a life sentence - though due to international campaigns and petitions their imprisonment was reduced and they were released in 1999.
