  Iris Baker Wednesday 15 October 2003  
In April 2002, Nick Baker was arrested in Japan when ecstasy and cocaine were found in a suitcase which he claims belonged to his travelling companion. He was convicted and sentenced to 14 years in prison.

His mother Iris is convinced he didn't get a fair tria, and she has been horrified by what she has seen of the prison system in Japan.
Iris Baker joins Jenni together with Baroness Sarah Ludford, a member of the European Parliament who has taken up his case.
