Does this 'punishment' seem excessive?

    If you live in an enclosed bubble of a country, safe or mostly safe from tyranny and ACTUAL oppression, where you and every other Joe can put your elected officials on blast without consequence because of "free speech", of course it's going to seem excessive.

    What if a UK MP was arrested in a strict far east prison, would the UK not likely send in special forces if the government in the far east were reluctant to release the MP?

    I'm not British but I doubt the UK would send a swat team to free an MP from prison in a foreign country if the MP is accused or convicted of a crime in that foreign country. Do MPs have diplomatic immunity in foreign countries? Probably not. Ambassadors have immunity. American congressmen don't have diplomatic immunity but our ambassadors do.
