Michael Abdul-Karim's second book after Observation Status, Customised Down Under tells the story of Antoun El Hani, a middle aged businessman, and his wildest and worst nightmare. An unexpected trip to Sydney for a period of two weeks paid for by a friend results El Hani being charged with the importation of large commercial quantity of prohibited drugs contrary to section 23B(1)(d) of the Customs Act, a charge that could carry a life sentence. After accepting advice and entering a guilty plea, El Hani is sentenced to 20 years jail with 15 years non-parole. The unforgivable mistakes of the high profile defence team retained by El Hani's French wife and daughter to represent him in a simple plea that was listed for one day. The court room drama that followed over a four day plea hearing makes reading this book a must for those who appreciate the art of advocacy at its worst by those who claim to be its masters and charge accordingly. Mrs. El Hani and her daughter paid in excess of $140,000 in legal fees for a one day guilty plea.
