Not often you see name clarification's like that for those facing the death penalty.CLARIFICATION - A previous version of this story identified the sentenced Australian man as Cam Gillespie. His name is Karm Gilespie.
3 Jan 2014 was a Friday.More than 3,000 paramilitary forces and police descended on a small coastal village in China's Guangdong province -- many of them in helicopters and speedboats.
In the early hours of Sunday, they conducted 109 raids in Boshe, a village of 14,000 people.
In the massive crackdown on the region's illicit narcotic trade, police seized three tons of crystalline methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth or ice, and arrested 182 people with suspected links to 18 drug rings, according to a statement released Thursday by Guangdong's public security bureau.
They recovered another 100 tons of raw materials for producing drugs, as well as guns, knives and a grenade, a spokesperson for the public security bureau told CNN on Friday.Some 77 drug factories were shut down in the raid, police say.

Remind me, was Cam/Kamu/Karm/Craig, alleged to have been carrying drugs into, out of, or within China?Article Summary: At 4 o'clock on the morning of December 29, the Deputy Governor and Director of the Public Security Department Li Chunsheng served as the Chief Commander, the Deputy Director of the Provincial Public Security Department Guo Shaobo, and Shanwei City Public Security Director Yang Zhiming served as the Deputy Chief Commander of the "Thunderbolt" operation command At the order of the Ministry, the public security, armed police, and border guards mobilized to hear the police. Taking Shanwei City as the main battlefield, they carried out a unified net-collecting operation in some provinces and cities in Fujian and in Fujian, Chongqing, Guangxi, and other regions. 18 super-large drug trafficking criminal gangs led by drug lords, arrested 182 network members, destroyed 77 drug manufacturing factories and 1 explosive manufacturing den, seized 2,925 kg of methamphetamine, 260 kg of K powder, over 100 tons of raw materials for drug production, and firearms There were 62 rounds of 9 bullets, 1 grenade, a batch of controlled knives and crossbows, and a group of poison-making tools, which achieved remarkable results.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison says Foreign Minister Marise Payne has raised the case of Karm Gilespie, the Australian man sentenced to death in China, with her Chinese counterpart. Mr Gilespie was sentenced to the death penalty 6.5 years after he was arrested on drug smuggling charges. "Australia's opposition to the death penalty is bipartisan, multipartisan, unanimous, principled, consistent and well-known,"Mr Morrison told parliament during Question Time. "We advocate consistently with the abolition of the death penalty world wide by every diplomatic avenue available to us. We will continue to provide Mr Gilespie with consular assistance. Our thoughts are with him, his family and his loved ones."
This might indicate Gilespie's family, Gillespie with two 'l's' would prefer him to be quiet.Has anyone else verified Mr Hamilton's above account of what really happened?
"We also request that friends and acquaintances of Karm refrain from speculating on his current circumstances, which we do not believe assists his case."

The lesson from this is one of expectations management for the general public.During Question Time in Parliament today, Foreign Minister Marise Payne was asked why the Australian public only learned about Mr Gilespie's case after he had been sentenced to death.
But she said appropriate assistance had been provided to Mr Gilespie since his arrest.
"Every consular case with which the Government deals is different, and every consular case is handled in consultation with [diplomatic] posts, family and legal representatives in the most appropriate way," she said.
Maybe there never was 7.5kg of drugs in the handbags in the first place.
Shapelle didn’t know her boogie board bag was full of marijuana and Cocaine Cassie had no idea the 15 headphones she bought were full of cocaine.
Does everyone else think that the above is saying that the Australian Government's position is that Gillespie is guilty as charged and convicted?Despite claims by Gilespie's friends that the Ballarat-born father of two was duped into carrying bags lined with methamphetamines after meeting with Chinese property investors, the Australian government holds no doubts over Gilespie's guilt.
The article provides absolutely nothing on where this alleged information on the Australian Government's position on Gilespie's. The article does not even include a whiff of something like "a Government source .....".The Australian government largely takes the opposite view, believing Gilespie's best chance lies in keeping the case under the radar until relations between Australia and China start to recover.
Yes but what else can they say? If our government's stand was anything other than China would view it as a lack of respect and might get him shot sooner rather than later.Does everyone else think that the above is saying that the Australian Government's position is that Gillespie is guilty as charged?
It’s funny you say that - I always think KD was more recent than she was. I think it’s because it sticks in my mind because she was given very special VIP treatment from the Australian government.Yes, thanks that might be her. I thought it was more recently but it might have been as far back in 2014.
