They won’t be held for long, if you actually research the newswire (unlike 99% of this thread) , they all admitted the money wasn’t for them and they were just going to get a cut. This means they were advised to admit the crime so they can cut a deal and not be detained for long.
This will all help when the lawyers try to get them released so they can go back to their country.
