Lawrence -- part of a group of Australian drug traffickers known as the Bali Nine jailed at Kerobokan -- and 11 other foreign prisoners received a recommendation for a six-month cut in her sentence on August 17. Indonesia officials annually offer remissions to some prison sentences on the country's Independence Day for good behaviour.
