That or more
If they really do serve their full time, then maybe it is fair.
Why the difference in sentence lengths? They were all involved and contributed to the horrific deaths.
Some were higher up in the chain of command Tiggs.

Fair? I find it impossible to use that word in this case.
No. Because they will not be in prison for the full time of the sentence .
paltry..make an example of them, any ex army will know what i mean.
makes no difference, ooman rights acts...they will be given live to stay
oomn rights, for the undeserved, theu will still take the money and run.

not long enough imo.
My only question is about the drivers, did they know what they had on board. They may have known it was illegal cargo but not the nature of that freight. If I had been on the jury I might have argued for manslaughter in their cases. It would depend on the evidence, it might be it was clear they did have full knowledge.

its still a lucrative business and one that will continue im sure. even with these sentences it won't put people off from people smuggling.
