It would have been far more statesman-like for the PM to say that she would actually check to see if this prisoner IS a child as caimed by the Indonesian Government.

Yasmin WAS born in 1996 and was only 13 when arrested for 'people smuggling'.

It is really sad when a country like Australia doesn't have the heart to ensure a boy of this age is sent back to his mother and siblings. Yasmin's dad died when Yasmin was only small, so normally he is the bread winner for the family. But now he is an adult maximum security jail in WA.
