Antony de Malmanche needs a lawyer to help clear his name in Bali.

  Manawatu / Whanganui Advocacy Family Support Legal

Antony de Malmanche, victim of an internet dating scam needs our help. He's been arrested in Bali for allegedly smuggling drugs into the country. He needs a lawyer to help clear his name and money for food. He will be in pain and unsure of what's going to happen to him as the the penalties over in Bali are very strict and the death penalty is a very real outcome. Any donations would be greatly appreciated, please help us bring this Dad, Father in law, Grandfather and all round good guy home. He is greatly missed. We won't give up!

Christine Thomas' involvement (page creator)

Hey there, Thanks for all the support so far, you guys are amazing! Still a long way off the amount we need to finance his Lawyer but every little bit helps and we are very greatful for the amount raised so far!

He's still in Denpasar police station and has been given an extension for his stay there while the legal team builds his defence. He's expected to be moved to the notorious Kerokoban prison next month. Things are tough for him at the moment, not alot of food and amenities. None of the prisoners are allowed anything that they could use to harm themselves or others with so he only has half a towel and showers with a bucket of water. He doesn't get much sleep with the 27 other people in his cell, having back issues, sleeping on the floor and no pillow will do that to ya, but he's putting on a brave face and taking each day as it comes.

We have set up a Facebook page called Justice for Tony de Malmanche, where we will post relevant stories and updates. We also have set up a few Trademe auctions with all proceeds going toward helping Dad with lawyers and the basics.

The Facebook page is:

You can find links to the Trademe auctions there and we invite you all to like and share the page as much as possible to help us get the word out there.

We are really missing him and want to see him back home, we are doing all we can at the moment but we need your help too New Zealand!

Bye for now and Thanks!
