Quick Count

Quick Count is a method for verification of election results by projecting them from a sample of the polling stations. Different than the exit poll, voters are not asked who they voted for, projection of results is based on official results of the polling station. Parallel vote tabulation is similar to quick count, but uses whole data instead of samples. (Wikipedia)

Woman in jail for hospital email complaint
By Indonesia correspondent Geoff Thompson
A mother of two young children has been jailed in Indonesia for defaming a hospital through an email she sent to friends.
Prita Mulyasari sent an email to friends complaining about the service she received from the Omni International Hospital on the outskirts of Jakarta.
In the email, Mulyasari accused the hospital of fraud because she was refused access to her medical records to clarify a disputed diagnosis.
Omni pursued legal action, resulting in prosecutors charging Mulyasari with criminal defamation offences, which could send her to jail for up to six years.
She has already been imprisoned for three weeks ahead of a court appearance tomorrow, after losing a civil case to the hospital which saw her fined $6,000.
Human rights groups and 16,000 supporters have joined an online campaign demanding her release.
