Facts and Stats: Australians imprisoned overseas
Although they may be the most well known, Schapelle Corby and the Bali Nine are not the only Australians detained in overseas prisons. The Department of Foreign Affairs says there are a total of 104 Australians currently overseas who are under arrest, or convicted of drugs charges. Of those two are currently facing death.

Their statistics show the largest number of those detained 36 in total, including the Bali Nine are in jails across South East Asia.

The second largest group of 15 are serving time in North America, while another 13 are in Europe.

There are 12 Australians on drugs charges in North Asia and Japan, and 11 others in South Central America.

The South Pacific also has 11 Australians detained in their jails, while India and the Middle East have six.

In both Singapore and Vietnam, two Australians will be handed the death penalty if their clemency fails.

Meanwhile Schapelle Corby and the Bali Nine have little hope of serving their time back at home.

Justice Minister Chris Ellison has said even if the prisoner transfer agreement between Indonesian and Australia is signed, there is still no guarantee that it will apply to them.
