Burying The Truth: Burying Schapelle Corby

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYCuzE16tQE

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYCuzE16tQE

Many Australians saw Schapelle Corby’s human rights being trampled upon with their own eyes.

They saw the nature of the show trial for themselves: the refusal to test the drugs for country of origin, the refusal to fingerprint, the judge who had never acquitted anyone, and subsequently even the burning of the evidence so that it could never be used to free her.

They saw that her testimony and whole demeanor were clearly those of an innocent person, and in contrast they saw the shambolic pretence of judicial procedure in which evidence was simply an irritant and a deflection from the pre-ordained process.

They then saw a vengeful and barbaric sentence of 20 YEARS awarded. 20 years in conditions barely imaginable.

This was visible and open to all. The cat was out of the bag.

But for the Australian Government, their strategic relationship with Indonesia trumps Schapelle Corby’s human rights every time.

This was potentially disastrous for them. Enter the Australian media: ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), Seven Network, Nine Network, etc.

Enter the press: Fairfax Media Limited (SMH – Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, etc), News Corporation (The Australian, The Herald Sun, The Daily Telegraph, etc), and so on. Enter headline chasing, circulation seeking, cheque book journalism.

Enter towing the government line. Enter distortion and smear. Enter the hiding of the truth, which you SAW for yourself in 2004/5.

Meanwhile, Schapelle suffers.

She lies clinically depressed in her tiny cell, with others, day after day, week after week, year after year.

Along with the truth, she is being buried, not just by a corrupt and ruthless foreign regime, but by her own nation’s media.

This film provides an overview of the insidious media process.

It outlines the methodology used, and the approach adopted to influence YOUR perception: to make you forget the facts – the facts you saw with your own eyes.

Australia: open your eyes again.

Recall what you actually saw, and recall what you know.

See through the veneer which is being pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

Differentiate the facts from the smear and innuendo which you have now been fed for years.

Someone’s life does actually depend upon it. NOTE The film was produced independently from the UK

(yes: concern at what has happened to Schapelle, and the shameful media campaign, is international).

Many months of detailed research and analysis were undertaken in making it. We won’t walk away…. will you?

Expendable: The Political Sacrifice Of Schapelle Corby

How a government wilfully withheld vital evidence from a court of law, deceived its public, orchestrated an unprecedented media campaign, and ruthlessly deployed its organs of state against one of its own citizens.

This is a frightening but entirely true narrative; a grotesque political horror story which is still unfolding today.

It exposes what happens when an individual’s human rights conflict with strategic political need.

It reveals the ruthless use of a government’s organs of state, and a regime of unprecedented opinion management, against a single working class woman and her desperate family. It presents, and demonstrates, the crushing, pre-meditated, and often brutal acts which a western government is prepared to inflict upon a helpless citizen, in pursuit of political expediency.

Schapelle Corby Myths Busted

This film was created with the intention to debunk many of the major myths surrounding Schapelle Corby and her family.

Schapelle was wrongfully imprisoned for a crime she didn’t commit.

Evidence was destroyed, numerous laws were broken by the very people who have been sworn in to uphold them, and countless lies destroyed nearly every opportunity Schape lle had at securing a release.

Unfortunately, Schapelle received an unfair trial by the Indonesian legal system, the Australian Government, and the media.

The media released hearsay with no corroboration and didn’t care that she and her family would bare the brunt of these myths.

We may never know just how much all of these lies, by her very own countrymen, would affect the outcome of her trial.

Although, considering she received an unprecedented 20 years for an unjust imprisonment I would say the role the media played had a grave impact.

A big Thank You goes out to Direct Cinema Limited (www.directcinema.com) and the producers for approving the use of the video clips from the movie ‘Ganja Queen’.

Schapelle and the CCTV Part 1

W hen Guy Pilgrim and Roseleigh Rose made this film in early 2005 they never imagined that the Australian government was acting in the full knowledge that Schapelle was innocent and that the Indonesian court and the Bali Police were railroading an innocent Australian tourist to gain international ‘War on Drugs’ funding.

Therefore, the first story told to Guy four days after Schapelle’s arrest, that the Brisbane Airport CCTV footage was in good order, was the truth since at that time the Brisbane Airport staff did not know who Schapelle was nor did they realise how explosive the CCTV footage would become.

Guy Pilgrim and Rosleigh Rose continue to tell their story of how both the Australian government and the Indonesian court either vetoed, ignored or ‘lost’ any evidence that could prove Schapelle Corby’s innocence.

Unforgiven Waves: For Schapelle Corby

Al Wilson’s wonderful and moving song tells the world of an injustice which stains humanity.

Schapelle Corby has suffered years upon years in a squalid third world cell for a crime she knew nothing about. Her own government sold her human rights, and her life, for political expediency.

Even now, when she is mentally ill, subject to terrible abuse, and with her life in serious danger… she is deserted.

The compelling artwork is by Erwin Verhoeven.

This is a story of shocking abuse of human rights, and political complicity at the expense of innocence.

It shames the governments of both Indonesia and Australian. For more information on Schapelle,

When You Tried To Tell The World… Song for Schapelle Corby

This is a remarkable song: powerful, full of passion, and telling it as it is.

It tells the terrible story of Schapelle Corby, the political game which has taken her life away from her, and the awful media campaign which has been running for years to hide it.

It exposes the truth. The song was written by Al Wilson, and is performed here by Holly Wilson.

It is an extraordinary song, sung by an amazing talant.

SCHAPELLE CORBY Schapelle Corby is illegally imprisoned in a squalid cell in Indonesia, having been sentenced to a shocking and brutal 20 YEARS in March 2005 for a crime she did not commit.

She suffered the most blatant of show trials: a trial in which evidence was simply an inconvenience, to be ignored and destroyed as quickly as possible.

She was charged with importing of 4kg of marijuana, which had appeared in her boogie bag when she landed in Bali.

Despite her desperate pleas, the so-called court: – refused to test the drugs for country of origin: if they were Indonesian, she would have to be freed – refused to fingerprint/DNA her bag – refused to view CCTV film from the airport – burned the evidence so it could never be used to free her – presumed guilt: she had to try to prove innocence from within a squalid cell – refused to let her question key witnesses in court (customs officers) – the list just goes on and on.

Even at the airport, they had illegally interrogated her for 9 hours, they attempted to trick her into signing a confession, and had even refused to weigh her bags: if they were 4kg heavier than when she left the drugs could not have been hers and again they would have had to release her.

To be certain, they appointed a ‘judge’ who had never acquitted anyone at all in 500 drug cases.

She just didn’t have any chance: she simply didn’t have a trial.

Despite the value of the marijuana being much lower than in Australia, to Indonesia Schapelle was a channel to war on drugs funding and a show case trial.

She had effectively become a political tool, with even the president commenting upon it, by urging the terrible sentence.

The Australian government? To them Schapelle was a problem for their key relationship with Indonesia.

That strategic relationship basically trumped Schapelle Corby’s human and legal rights.

They have therefore deserted her, and have allowed their media to subdue and manage public opinion on their behalf. But she isn’t a political tool, and isn’t dispensable!

She is a real person: an innocent woman who has had her life and her voice brutally taken away from her.

She is still there now, today, alone, suffering and struggling to survive each and every day.

She needs real people from around the world to help her and shout for her.

She needs YOU!

Poetry for Schapelle

CLOSED DOORS A prison door wrongfully closed behind her She has been searching for a key

She’s on her hands and knees among fallen leaves she is separated from her family tree along the injustice maze of yesterday

A blind has been unjustly drawn across the windows of her mind

She’s left standing while stranded in time Bewilderment to the unhealed wounds of shattered innocents overcomes her

She sees clemency as a sign of hope in the sun somewhere shining she can almost feel the suns rays upon her happier yesterdays a time long before the cold winds and rains ever came or blew her way

She knows not what she has done

She knows not what her crime

She pleads to the foreign authorities to let her go to set her free But ultimately it’s the president of an alien nation who holds the key

What will become of her if the key is soon not turned? In the name of human rights and justice the innocent should be set her free By: Al Wilson 

Fork Tongues and Toothless Dogs

Fork tongues and twisters speaking false words of manipulation to carve out someone Else’s future, I seen fork tongues walking on clouds of smog, I heard fork tongues whistling smoky tunes to martyrs, as dreams of hope and faith shattered across the universe time and space, I longed to see the day the smirk wiped of the fork tongues faces.

I seen fork tongues holding up fists of false grips,while they deliberately allowed issues and concerns to slip through their fingers, some called them watch dogs, I called them the toothless dogs of shame.

I seen the fork tongues as they kept the fires burning,never acknowledging them that they where hurting, they where all blinded by dollar notes and agendas in their eyes,some called them watch dogs, I called them the toothless dogs of shame.

It’s a slithery world feeding off a deceit,as fork tongue shepherds over look the masses of sheep, like listening to a stones hart beat,if you look into the eyes of the fork tongues you wont get any response.

Yes!!! their all fork tongues,their all toothless dogs of shame.

Yes!!! their all fork tongues,their all toothless dogs of shame.

yes!!! their all fork tongues,their all toothless dogs of shame. By:Al Wilson

Schapelle Corby Protest Reaches The United Nations

The global protest in support of imprisoned Australian Schapelle Corby arrived at the United Nations this morning.

Photographs of people demonstrating by holding “Free Schapelle” cards in cities throughout North America, Europe, Australasia and even the Middle East, were presented to UN representatives and officials.

Performing the delivery was Tara Hack, the indie-pop artist, whose “Saya Tidak Bersalah

(I’m Not Guilty)” has become a global anthem of support. Tara also presented a note, urging the UN to take up the case on behalf of Ms Corby.

Highlights from the protest are presented through the video for Tara Hack’s indie-song.

This can be viewed on the following web page: www.schapelle.net/un.html.

A selection of photographs of the protest can be seen on the same website.

Rachel James of the UK based Schapelle.Net web portal said: “We feel that the UN should embrace more than just international relations.

It should be available for real people who have suffered serious legal and human rights abuses.

It should intervene to help those who are suffering blatant injustice, even when their own governments let them down.

People from across the world are therefore urging them to use their office to address Schapelle Corby’s situation .

” She continued: “Schapelle Corby is enduring her fifth year of imprisonment in terrible conditions and remains in a desperate situation, yet in Australia the media’s focus has steadfastly avoided the human rights breaches of the trial, the political nature of the sentence, and her continued plight after all this time.

Meanwhile, the Australian government seems to have abandoned her.

We are therefore urging the international community to help address this disturbing tragedy.”

“Schapelle Corby is an innocent woman suffering and struggling hard on a daily basis just to survive.

She needs people across the world to help her, and she needs organizations like the UN to represent those people and act.

Even though it is such a distressing story, she desperately needs people who are reading this not to walk away but to lend their support, and become the voice which has been so cruelly taken from her.” Please don’t walk away…..

Shame of Nations (Schapelle Corby)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkE9bRwRk9w

Schapelle Corby is an innocent: a human rights abuse victim who has suffered years of imprisonment in an Indonesian prison cell, and continues to do so.
This musical story outlines the main facts of the case, via a conversation between Barack Obama and Gordon Brown.
The script is provided below.
BO: Hello. I am Barack Obama
GB: And I am Gordon Brown.
BO: We are going to tell you the true story of Schapelle Corby.
BO: The innocent victim of corruption and politics.
GB: October 2004.
GB: Corruption in Indonesia is endemic.
GB: War on drugs funding is attractive.
BO: Schapelle lands for a holiday in Bali. She is terrified to find some marijuana in her bag. She is arrested and illegally interrogated for 9 hours.
GB: They refuse to weigh her luggage. If it was heavier than in Australia, they would be forced to release her. They simply refuse to weigh it.
BO: The value of drugs in Indonesia is much lower than in Australia. There is no motive.
GB: And then the terrible show trial. The judge had never acquitted anyone in over 500 cases.
BO: They REFUSED to test the marijuana for country of origin. If it was Indonesian, she must be acquitted and freed.
GB: They REFUSED to check the drugs for fingerprints or DNA.
BO: They BURNED the evidence so that it can never be used to free her. They burned the evidence with her begging them not to.
GB: They talked about sending a warning to other Australians, a clear political intervention.
BO: They refused to retrieve the CC TV tapes from the airport.
GB: They refused to let her cross examine or question customs officers.
BO: Schapelle didn’t have a chance. She simply didn’t have a trial.
GB: They sentenced her to a barbaric 20 YEARS in the living hell of an Indonesian prison cell.
More than murderers, terrorists and rapists. A clear political sentence. A systematic abuse of human rights.
BO: They condemned her to miss the best years of her life. To never have kids.
G B: To never see them play, and to possibly die there.
BO: She is still there today.
GB: But back in Australia.
 BO: The Australian Government value their strategic relationship with Indonesia more than Schapelle Corby.
The bottom line. The Australian Government sold Schapelle Corby’s human rights for political expediency.
GB: They chose appeasement. They chose politics ahead of people.
BO: They turned a blind eye.
GB: Schapelle Corby is a working class girl, and not one of the establishments.
BO: She is despensible to them.
GB: They simply used the organs of state, and sections of the media, to subdue public opinion.
The state owned ABC network orchestrated it.
BO: Little by little.
GB: Bit by bit.
BO: They have simply abandoned her.
GB: After all these years she is still there. Alone. And struggling to survive.
BO: Schapelle Corby needs real people like you to speak for her. Schapelle Corby needs you.
GB: Please help free Schapelle. Please don’t walk away.
BO: Please help free Schapelle Corby now.
GB: Schapelle is only just hanging on. Please help her…. To help free Schapelle, please visit the following website: http://www.schapelle.net

This clip shows Schapelle and her family in images.
Images of an everyday family doing what average ozzie families do. Schapelle is a girl who has been brought up with ots of love and the love and respect Schapelle has of her brothers her sisters and her parent’s is not something that has emerged due to the event’s of 2004.
Their love for each other was there long before then.
Many Australian’s and people from around the world have taken Schapelle into their hearts and will continue to fight to protect her human rights until she is freed.
All image’s of the family supplied by Rosleigh Rose. Please visit: http://www.schapelle.net
This song is one of many songs written for Schapelle.
The singer is Holly Wilson The song was written by Al Wilson

SEAWEED MONSTERS:

Seaweed monsters of my mind, they clam me in, I sit alone in the dark, like a lonely pearl, there’s a swish and a swirl, that’s why there’s a cold cold wind. (harmony)
Chorus 1 : hoo-oo hoo-oo hoo-oo hoo-oo
Verse 2: Beware of troubled thoughts, as memory ships sail by, give no care to opinions, it could be they’re delusions.
I sat upon a sandy shore and watched the sun, I danced upon a deserted beach and Ive,Ive had some fun. life there are memories, that I guess will never stray, that’s why there’s a cold cold wind. Instrumental: That’s why there’s a cold cold wind, that’s why there’s a cold cold wind, that’s why there’s a cold cold wind.

For Schapelle Corby: Be Brave – By Vanessa Lea and Road Train

This lovely song is performed by Vanessa Lea and Road Train, and send encouragement and love over the waters to Schapelle. Schapelle Corby landed in Bali in 2004 to find that 4kg of marijuana had been put in her board bag.
She was illegally interrogated for 9 hours, and then subjected to a show trial which beggars belief.
The court refused to test the drugs for country of origin (if they were Indonesian they must free her), they refused to fingerprint/DNA, and they then burned all this evidence so that it could never be used to free her!
Even the judge – he had never acquitted anyone in over 500 cases and he refused to even order the seizure of CCTV from the airport.
Schapelle never had a chance and didn’t have a trial.
She was sentenced to a political 20 YEARS in the hell of an Bali prison: longer than murderers, rapists and terrorists often receive.
She is still there NOW and needs YOUR help.
Her cries for justice are not heard and her tears are not seen.
Schapelle Corby desperately needs YOU to speak for her. www.artistsforschapelle.com

Fork Tongues & Toothless Dogs Of Shame:

Selling Schapelle Corby

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rbz6EbXsLb8

Uploaded by on May 18, 2010

The Ombudsman is presented as a watchdog: a body to investigate complaints about the actions

of the Australian government. Unfortunately, in reality, the ombudsman office is nothing of the sort.
It exists to present the illusion of accountability, and is designed to cover up, and to deflect the public from pursuing either truth or justice.
This song is about the duplicity of this Australian government quango, with respect to Schapelle Corby.
It recounts Al Wilson’s direct experiences as he attempted to use the Ombudsman to address the complicity and corruption which is evident throughout a whole series of government departments, including the AFP and DFAT.
These were deployed against Schapelle Corby, as the Howard regime sought to appease Indonesia, and hide the systemic corruption throughout the AFP. The evidence is
overwhelming, and damning, and is starting to emerge into the public domain through a variety of channels.
However, the Ombudsman’s approach was to delay, to evade, to overlook, and to simply ignore and reject logic.
Their mission could not have been more obvious or clear. Fork Tongues and Toothless Dogs of Shame projects this ugly situation forcefully, yet beautifully.
It presents the truth, with stark descriptive lyrics, exposing the real nature of the Australian government’s puppets.
It is an outstanding protest song, nailing the issue directly, and pointing fingers at the guilty, who to this day continue to dodge and evade whilst an innocent tortured soul slowly approaches death.
The scorn and contempt for them is fully justified, and we join Al in hoping that one day they themselves will be brought to justice for the part they have played in the torture of Schapelle Corby.

Al Wilson’s video performance of his own song, Destination Paradise, which outlines the terrible case of Schapelle Corby,

an innocent suffering, whilst the world does nothing. His lively country and western style and strong lyrics create a forceful protest at the shameful inaction of both government and media. Al tells the tale of an innocent caught up in a nightmare of barbaric injustice and cruelty.
Of her government, dodging and diving from their responsibility, to avoid creating confrontation with Indonesia.
Of the most unethical media in the world treating it as fodder for circulation.
The original video was created in Australia by Al himself, and then sent here to the UK on CD for production and edit by ourselves.
Finally, the purpose of the video: please help Schapelle Corby, still suffering in an Indonesian prison cell, a terrible victim of show court injustice.

LYRICS: Verse 1 High up officials detectives of the force knew earlier on while a girl was going to court, About a corrupt drug smuggling ring with in the airport, and on the same day as she flew overseas, But these so called honourable men just let the evidence blow in the breeze.
Solo 1 Verse 2 Now this girl writes her book,telling about her injustice case,she is clinging to her innocense full of hope and faith, But our government turns to deaf ears,saying “oh! it’s just a proceed of crime, Well I say what kind of injustice have we got going on hear,do they think we are blind ? Do they think we can not see the dirt on there hands ? Or do they think they have the rights to play with strings like puppeteers ?
 Chorus 1 There is an aussie girl doing time in a land where are bombers believe they are martyrs of crimes, Injustice takes away destination paradise.
Verse 3 If this girl was guilty she would deserve to fall,but her prosecution case appears full of flaws, Nothing conclusively justifies closing iron doors. While powerful men in well dressed suits stuffed around playing the goose, Foreign hierarchy where considering given her the noose, Tag 1 Injustice takes away destination paradise.
Chorus 2 As Chorus 1 Verse 4 TV news papers and the magazines played their higher volume sales games, Why they ought not to be ashamed for wrongfully running down there nations own ? Why they be so prejudice to the chance of a girl coming home ? But then again for twisting the truth the media is well known Tag 2 Injustice takes away destination paradise. Chorus 3 As Chorus 1 Instrumental: Bridge 1 If you’re the kind that feels unsure, why not sit alone and let the dingo call, your memories of an injustice case from years before Tag 3 Injustice takes away destination paradise. Chorus 4 As Chorus 1 

Tara Hack: The Wizard Down Under (For Schapelle Corby)

This is Tara Hack’s incredible protest anthem, exposing the truth about Schapelle Corby.
It reveals the human rights abuses, the political sentence, the foul politics, the hostile media campaign – and reminds Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd about his statement in 2005 demanding action to support her. It is a song which cries out to the world for justice and compassion.
It cries out to Kevin Rudd: So lets all go see the wizard Down under in OZ And tell Kevin Rudd That we’ve got a cause Do you know Schapelle Corby Well she’s from OZ, too John Howard was a coward Now its all up to you It cries out to Indonesia: Listen up Indonesia The free wind can change fast Before you look to your future You need to clean up your past When the people came together The Berlin wall fell down So Power to the people Free Schapelle Corby NOW! It cries out to YOU.
This video tells the story as it really is, about a real person, an innocent struggling to survive every day of every week of every year.
 It tells the harrowing story of the victim of injustice, indifference, corruption and cruelty.
Please continue to watch the video in its entirety, and continue to watch after the song ends, to hear Schapelle’s anguished cries for help.
And then pass on the video: tell your friends and colleagues about it.

Tara Hack: Im Not Guilty. Free Schapelle Corby

  This beautiful song tells the true story of Schapelle Corby,
an innocent suffering cruelty and abject misery in the hell of an Indonesian prison cell.
This outstanding video follows Tara around New York, as she campaigns tirelessly,
and includes support messages from dozens of real people in real places across the globe:
California, Preston UK, New Orleans, Adelaide (Australia), New Zealand, Ohio, Germany,
Virginia, Texas, Macclesfield (UK), Perth (Australia), Tasmania, Dubai, and many many more,
with the sequence ending in Canberra, home of the Australian government.Schapelle Corby
suffered the most blatant and obvious of show trials for importation of marijuana.
No ordinary trial, but one in which the judge refused to test the drugs for country of origin
(if they were Indonesian she could not have imported them!), refused to fingerprint the drug bags,
and then burned all this evidence so it could never be used to free her!
This same judge admitted he had never acquitted anyone in over 500 drug cases!
On a daily basis her legal and human rights were grotesquely abused: it is scarecely believable, but it happened.
Even the president of Indonesia intervened, urging an example to be made for other Australians!
She had no chance whatsoever.
None.She was then (in 2005) sentenced to a brutal 20 years in the hell of a squalid and dangerous cell:
more than murderers, rapists and terrorists often get. SHE IS STILL THERE NOW – SUFFERING.
For the Australian government, after initial hand wringing,
they took the pragmatic view that their strategically important relationship with Indonesia trumped
Schapelle Corby’s human rights.
She was dispensable. The Australian media subsequently covered their tracks,
tracks which this song/video can help to uncover.
This incredible song and video were produced at the end of 2008,
at Clould9 Recording in in New York by people who care.
People who were not prepared to walk away and forget what they had learned.
People who were prepared to act to try to help someone in truly desperate need,
regardless of the odds.Schapelle is not a soap character, she is human, just like you.
She feels pain, she suffers and worries, and cries.
Her cries for justice though are not heard. Her tears are not seen.
YOU can become her voice, and YOU can make a difference.
Please pass on this story, pass on this song and video to your family, friends and anyone who will listen.
Please Don’t Walk Away…

Schapelle Corby’s Holiday Resort

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMWeuQkEnh0

THIS is the Bali jail cell where Schapelle Corby spends her days and nights sharing side by side with six other women.
She sleeps on a simple green mattress and has a wooden bedside table with photographs of her with her beloved
father and step-father, both of whom have passed away, trinkets and religious symbols.
A bag of mail sits on the floor and a Donald Duck toy is on her pillow.
A yellowed copy of Nelson Mandela’s autobiography Long Walk To Freedom sits on the floor next to her bed space.
A small Hindu shrine, tended by the Balinese prisoners, occupies one of the window sills and a small electric fan
is attached to the wall in a bid to ease the tropical heat. The media was yesterday allowed a rare tour of the
women’s block of Bali’s Kerobokan jail, where guards allowed access to the cells of Corby and fellow Ugly
Australian Renae Lawrence.But Corby avoided the spotlight by staying in the bathroom area of her cell,
refusing to come out.Clearly frustrated, she then began hurling water at those waiting outside through a small window of the bathroom area.
Meanwhile, speaking inside her cell, Lawrence, sporting bruises around her eyes, refuted claims she was going to
testify in court at the upcoming appeal of her fellow Bali Nine member Scott Rush in a bid to help him beat the death penalty.
Lawrence said she had made a statement of less than one page which basically confirmed Rush was a heroin courier like her.

A Letter From Simba Sometimes people can express the truth in their own words far more effectively than we can as website builders.
A wonderful example is the recent letter we received from Simba, “Schapelle’s White Lion”, which we are privileged to reproduce below in full:

Schapelle Corby, The Truth.

I decided to create this video as a tribute to Schapelle Corby. The strength, determination and commitment
her family has shown in fighting for Schapelles freedom, has given me an overwhelming incentive to do
everything I can in my limited power to spread spread the truth about her situation.
I wish all the gullible people who believe the lies about her family supposedly being involved with drugs,
would put as much effort into finding out the truth, as they do making up all the hurtful lies and rumours
that this family has to endure.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sBYpzqqN-g

WHY I SUPPORT SCHAPELLE CORBY AND WHY YOU SHOULD AS WELL Simba
I have known the Corby family for 25 years and I am a close family friend.
A supporter of sorts since day one, I became an active supporter 3 years ago after reading her book,
“My Story,” when my heart would no longer allow me to sit on the sidelines waiting and hoping.
My wife and I lost our son to illicit drugs 12 years ago.
As such, I have no tolerance for illicit drugs or those dealing in them.
As far as I am concerned, if you commit the crime, you do the time, providing the sentence is a fair and reasonable punishment.
However, by the same token, if you are Innocent, you should be set free.
The Innocent should not be punished.
In March 2009 I visited Schapelle in Kerobokan Prison, along with her mother Rosleigh, two of her Aunts and a friend of Schapelle’s named Katrina.
Katrina was one of Schapelle’s travelling companions on that fateful trip to Bali in October 2004.
In order to visit Schapelle, your name must be on a Consulate list of approved visitors.
Only family, close friends, and others who have been approved by Mercedes Corby, are on it.
I visited her again in Late November/early December, this time with two fellow supporters, and I noticed a shocking deterioration in her mental condition.
When she wasn’t staring into space and rocking from side to side, or looking around intently seeing cameras everywhere and goodness knows what other demons, she was making frequent references to suicide and death.
From time to time the Schapelle I remembered would resurface from the depths, but this occurred infrequently.
From other comments she made about a range of bizarre topics, and in particular her dead father, I have no doubt that Professor Jonathan Phillip’s assessment of Schapelle Corby, referred to later in this letter, is 100% correct.
Schapelle is, without doubt, one of the loveliest persons you could ever hope to meet, and seeing her in this state was truly heartbreaking.
As Australians, we pride ourselves on being charitable and caring, sensitive and kind, more than willing to lend a hand and give people a fair go, particularly the battlers in society. We are well known for rallying together to support those around us who have lost everything, the recent outpourings of generosity to the Victorian bushfire victims being just one example.
However, in relation to this Innocent woman, we have done very poorly.
On the 12th of October 2004, four days after her arrest, Schapelle Corby was asked by a reporter “Is there anything you want to say to the Australian public?”

She turned to him and said, simply, “Help Me! Help Me!”

The truth of the matter is this – that despite the initial support for her from a large percentage of the population, and a wide interest in her case, the Australian public have not helped her, and most have now turned their backs on her.
Indeed, most would say, “She’s guilty as sin and deserves everything she gets.”
I have found, when talking to people about her, that some individuals become quite hostile at the very mention of her name.
Some of the comments made about Schapelle by Australians on the internet are nothing short of callous and cruel, with not a hint of care or compassion for this woman, who is suffering unspeakably for a crime she did not commit.
Schapelle Corby is another Australian who has lost everything.
She has lost her freedom, her comfort, her vitality and her joy.
She has lost the company of her family and friends, except for the brief visits that she gets from time to time, and she has lost her chance at marriage and motherhood.
She has, essentially, lost her life. Furthermore, if she remains in prison for much longer, she may very well kill herself.
She pretty much lost the will to survive in June of 2008, following the death of her father in mid January, having her final appeal rejected in late March, and having her step father die in early April. Following this hat-trick of disastrous events, she became so disorientated and depressed that she lost the ability to eat and hold down food.
Suffering from stress induced starvation, her weight quickly dropped to 43 kilos while her sister Mercedes was in Australia fighting the defamation case against Channel 7. Mercedes got back to Bali in mid June, jubilant over her court victory, only to find Schapelle looking like a walking skeleton.
Despite Schapelle’s obvious physical condition, Mercedes had to literally stand in the visiting area of the prison and refuse to leave, before the prison authorities agreed to let Schapelle go to hospital.
A mere 19 days later, the day before her 31st Birthday, Schapelle was returned to her prison cell heavily sedated, and she remains heavily medicated on anti-depressants to this day.
Despite this, she continues to struggle daily with the agony of her wrongful imprisonment, and was admitted to hospital, once again, in late May of 2009.
When admitted, she was unable to walk, talk or even wash herself.
She appeared retarded and tears would stream down her face, even when she was not crying.
This time she was allowed only 12 days respite from the squalor of her prison cell, before being dragged back there in the middle of the night.
This was done on the advice of doctors within the hospital who claimed she was improving, despite having never examined her.
Now, following an examination of Schapelle by the eminent psychiatrist Professor Jonathan Phillips in August 2009, we find that Schapelle has been officially diagnosed as insane. In the doctor’s own words, “Schapelle is suffering from a severe psychotic illness accompanied by delusions, hallucinations and thought disorder.
At times, her fragile mind and body shut down and she sinks into a catatonic state.”…. “She has no hope, her treatment is inadequate and cannot work in the current (prison) environment.

She is condemned to a private hell which is hard to contemplate and which will probably end in death.”

Schapelle has already lacerated her arms, knees and face with broken glass. She will not survive much longer.
Even when Schapelle’s mental state was better, she still suffered immeasurably.
Being a female prison inmate in a Muslim ruled country immediately places you at a disadvantage.
Unlike the men, women are not allowed to play sports, or work out in a gym, they do not have access to television and there is no furniture of any kind in their cells.
The lucky ones, those with support on the outside, sleep on thin mattresses, the rest sleep on sarongs spread out over the concrete floor.
The men can come and go from their cells pretty much whenever they want to, whereas the women are locked up for 15 hours a day, sitting around most of the time, barely moving.
Contrary to what some may believe, Schapelle does not get out of prison to wine and dine with her sister whenever she feels like it.
She never has and she never will, until she is free, and has been cured (hopefully) of her serious mental illness.
Schapelle used to read books but can no longer do so, due to her inability to concentrate and the phobias she has about practically everything.
Even reading short letters from friends is now almost beyond her.
Until recently she was making beaded necklaces, bracelets and anklets, one of the very few things that the prison authorities allowed her to do, but now struggles even with this. The simple acts of washing, dressing and eating can, at times, be too much for her to manage on her own, depending on her level of lucidity.
At times like this, her sister Mercedes has to come into the prison and assist her with these basic functions, a job which nearly breaks her heart.
Even if her former request to start up beauty therapy classes for her fellow prisoners was now granted, it is highly unlikely she would be capable of running them.
The toilet in the corner of the cell occasionally blocks up spewing human waste out onto the floor which can sometimes remain there for days until the problem is fixed and the floor cleaned.
Additionally, the stench from outside, the heat and humidity, the mosquitoes, the red ants that bite at night leaving welts and scars, and the rats, remind Schapelle every day of exactly where she is.
The prison is rife with diseases like Aids and Hepatitis and Schapelle suffers regularly from severe eye and ear infections.
Her hair has gone prematurely grey and has to be dyed constantly to maintain its black appearance.
In her 5 plus years of imprisonment, Schapelle has witnessed all manner of horrors, horrors that no young woman should ever have to see – prisoners being bashed to a pulp, kicked in the face until it’s just blood and bone, girls attacking each other with broken glass, women miscarrying in her cell, and several suicides.
She has endured this without the assistance of trauma counselling, which we would all expect to receive for witnessing far less.
She said in her book, written in 2006, “I never know what I’ll see next but I do know that in my future there’ll be many more grim, disgusting sights I can’t yet even imagine.”
In 2010, there is not much left that Schapelle has not seen.

Did Schapelle Corby deserve this, and does she deserve having to endure more of the same for the remainder of her sentence

(13 and a half years barring further reductions)? No! She is not a drug dealer, a drug smuggler, or a drug trafficker. She never was.

Before her real life was stolen from her, Schapelle did not use marijuana and did not even like being around those who were.
She did admit to trying it a couple of times in her teens but has not touched it since.
An occasional beer and a few mild cigarettes were her only vices.
Despite being convicted of drug smuggling in Bali, she has no proven association with illicit drugs, or anyone dealing in them in Australia.
Prior to her fateful trip to Bali in October 2004, Schapelle had no criminal record and was, to all intents and purposes, a law abiding citizen.
She was, and still is, a very caring and compassionate person as well as a loving daughter and sister, one that her family are very proud of despite her conviction in Bali, which they know to be unjust.
Despite her own personal torment and anguish, which would drain the emotional resources of most, she still manages to spare a thought for others and their pain.
Schapelle has cried so many times in her own misery since this tragedy began, yet she can still find a tear for others when she knows they are suffering nearby.
Schapelle Corby is a beautiful and courageous person, admired and loved by all her supporters.

Everything you thought you knew about her, and her case, needs to be seriously re-evaluated.

And yet, there was marijuana in her boogie-board bag.
This fact is indisputable.
So, apart from the intimate knowledge that I have through my friendship with the Corby family, and with Schapelle herself, what else do I have to support the notion that she is “Not Guilty”? Firstly, there was no motive.
The value of the drugs in Australia would have been around $35,000 and in Bali around $5,000.
So, who in their right mind would take a chance on receiving a death sentence, or a life sentence in a third world prison, just to lose $30,000? No one would, which is why marijuana has never been taken to Bali from Australia before, or since. Indeed, if the drugs in her bag really did come from Australia, this event is unique in the histories of both Australia and Indonesia.
Quite simply, there is no Australian marijuana on Bali’s streets.
There never has been, and probably never will be.
Australian marijuana, grown hydroponically, which is apparently much sought after by westerners in Bali and carries the name “Aussie Gold,” is a myth. Schapelle, who had worked so hard in her mother’s Fish & Chip shop just to save the $1300 for her trip, and who was given a further $1100 by her mother and father to have a good time, would not have had the money to buy the drugs anyway.
Do I suspect her father of inserting the drugs? No, I do not!
He loved his daughter and vice-versa.
She was his baby girl, the youngest of his children, and they shared a very special bond.
She was the one living with him, and caring for him, as he slowly died of cancer.
He would never have done anything like this to her.
When he did finally die, in January 2008, she was the one and only family member who could not attend his funeral.
Do I suspect her brothers of inserting the drugs? Once again, No! – For the following reasons: – Firstly, not one of them would have had the money to buy $35,000 worth of marijuana. – Secondly, they would not do this to their sister – slip 4 kilos of marijuana in clear plastic bags into her boogie-board bag, on top of her boogie-board, without telling her, and let her fly off to a country that has the death penalty for drug trafficking.
I know them well enough to say this with certainty. – Thirdly, what would be the motive for doing so?
So Schapelle (a non drug user) could sell the drugs in Bali for $5000, in competition with local drug dealers, while on a two week holiday?
So she could create history by being the first person, ever, to take marijuana to Bali from Australia?
No! Do I suspect baggage handlers of inserting the drugs, for the purpose of getting them interstate, then failing to remove them in Sydney?
Yes, it is a distinct possibility but is, as yet, unproven. 4 months after Schapelle’s “Guilty” verdict, a British aviation expert, Sir John Wheeler, did investigate airport security and find that marijuana is moved through Australian airports.
This is done with the aid of airport and airline staff who the criminals bribe in order to circumvent airport security.
Do I suspect Schapelle of doing this? No, I do not, and it comes back to motive.
Why pay a bribe to ensure the passage of the drugs between Brisbane and Sydney, so they can continue onward to Bali to be sold for a fraction of their original value?
Paying a bribe would only compound the loss. Schapelle’s bag was unlocked, so the drugs could have been inserted in Sydney.
This possibility is under investigation by a number of supporters, but there is currently no hard evidence to support the notion.
The only thing we do know is that a major cocaine shipment did come into Sydney International Airport from South America while Schapelle’s boogie-board bag was on the ground in the international baggage handling area.
The marijuana may have arrived at the same time and been discarded into Schapelle’s bag for some, as yet, unknown reason.
Of course, discounting Sydney, there is only one other place where the drugs could have been inserted and that is, on the ground in Bali, before the boogie-board bag passed through Customs. This is a possibility.
Regrettably, the truth of the matter is this – we don’t really know who inserted the drugs, and we may never know.
Because they were burnt without ever being tested for their country and place of origin, which could have been established in advanced laboratories, there is no way to tell where they came from.
In not knowing this, it is very difficult to establish with certainty the guilty party, or their motive.
The only thing we are certain of is this: that Schapelle Corby did not insert them, and neither did anyone else in her family.
Nevertheless, the actions of the Balinese Police, the Prosecution, and the Judges, appear incongruous.
Had they truly suspected that Schapelle was guilty of the crimes for which she was charged, they should, seemingly, have conducted themselves differently.
Article 8 of the Indonesian Code of Criminal Procedure, Article 18 of the Indonesian Human Rights Law, Article 14 (2) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Indonesia is a signatory, and Article 11 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, all state the following in so many words:
“Everyone charged with a criminal offence shall have the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to the law, in a public trial, at which he or she has had all the guarantees necessary for their defence.”
The Indonesian Code of Criminal Procedure also requires that the Prosecution provide some form of secondary evidence with which to back up the primary evidence, in order to secure a conviction, the primary evidence in this case being the marijuana itself.
As such, it is reasonable to assume that the Balinese Police would have conducted a full investigation into this crime, both to assist the Prosecution in building their case against Schapelle Corby and to catch all those involved.
Any one, or all, of the following points could have been investigated, and if the Police had been doing their job properly one would have expected them to do so.
Fingerprinting the inner and outer plastic bags. Not only was this not done, both plastic bags were handled without gloves, the outer bag by the Customs Officers and Police, the inner bag by the Judge himself, in court, along with the Customs Officers and Prosecution who he beckoned over to participate.
The Judge then denied a request by the Defence to have the inner bag fingerprinted because, as he put it, “Too many people have handled the bag.”
Weighing her checked in baggage with the drugs on the scales, and comparing this weight with the checked-in weight.
If the two weights were the same then the drugs were in her bag at check-in.
Not done, not deemed necessary by the Police.
Why would they deem such a simple process to be unnecessary, when it could have provided the secondary evidence straight away?
Forensically testing the marijuana to determine its country of origin.
This would have been necessary to prove that the drugs actually came from Australia and, had it done so, would have provided the Prosecution with a prima facie case. Furthermore, had Schapelle’s DNA been matched against the DNA of any hair or skin fragments found amongst the drugs, she would have had no choice but to change her plea to “Guilty .”
Not only did the Police not do this, they refused to allow the Australian Federal Police to do it.
They also burned the remaining evidence in March 2006, well before Schapelle’s avenues of appeal had been exhausted, to ensure that the drugs could never be tested in the future.
They did this in contravention of International Law, which requires at least a sample of the evidence to be preserved.
Had forensic testing been conducted, and had it proven that the drugs were Indonesian, Schapelle would have been exonerated straight away and the finger pointed at the Balinese.
Had it proven that the drugs were South American, Schapelle would once again have been exonerated and the finger pointed at Sydney baggage handlers.
Schapelle begged for these investigations to be carried out and even signed a consent form allowing the Australian Federal Police to forensically test the marijuana, in order to ensure a proper result.
Since when do guilty people beg for further investigations of their crime, knowing full well that the results will only further incriminate them?
Bearing in mind that the results of these investigations could just as easily have proven that Schapelle was innocent, we begin to see a possible motive for their refusal to do so. However, we have to ask the question –
If they thought Schapelle was guilty, why not conduct these simple investigative procedures and prove it?
Last but not least, a Police investigation into how Schapelle had acquired, and intended to dispose of, 4.2kg of marijuana. Since Schapelle was also being charged with trafficking, as well as importation, it would have been necessary to establish that she did, in fact, have connections with a drug distribution network in Bali.
Once again, not done.
Despite this being recorded as the first time that marijuana has ever been exported from Australia to Bali, no investigation of any kind was carried out in either country, and during the entire case no mention was made of a single person believed to be involved with Schapelle in disposing of the drugs.
The Police did not interview Mercedes, her husband Wayan, or anyone else in Bali for that matter, nor did they visit Mercedes’ home.
In Australia, no officer from the Queensland or Australian Federal Police forces interviewed a single family member in relation to this crime.
Nor did they visit either of the Corby residences.
It appears that no one in authority, in either country, had any interest in finding out who else may have been involved, in order to put a stop to what was, if true, a new and disturbing development in transnational drug trafficking.
When asked why the AFP had not investigated the Corby’s in Australia in relation to this crime, Mick Keelty, the AFP Commissioner, replied, “It’s not the job of the Australian Federal Police to clear people.” In saying this, was he admitting that he knew Schapelle Corby was innocent?
The one spin-off from the Balinese Police’s refusal to conduct an investigation was the fact that Schapelle’s defence case suffered considerably.
Indeed, with no evidence forthcoming from their non-investigation, her lawyers were forced to look to Australia for something, anything, with which to mount a defence.
Because Schapelle was innocent, and had effectively handed over control of her bags to baggage handlers from the moment of check-in to the time she retrieved them in Bali, the probability that baggage handlers had inserted the drugs into her bag, for whatever reason, was a reasonable assumption.
As such, her lawyers examined every aspect of baggage handling practices in an attempt to find a clue which would explain the presence of the drugs in her bag and prove “reasonable doubt,” which is grounds for acquittal in any fair minded court in the world.
The “baggage handler defence” was, however, given real substance with the inclusion of the Victorian prisoner John Ford’s testimony to the case.
Quite why John Ford decided to give the testimony that he did, I do not know, but his story about the jailed baggage handlers discussing the bungled drug delivery, and of the man lamenting his marijuana loss, came with no supporting hard evidence.
Having said this though, it may very well have been the truth. Schapelle, of course, saw it as her salvation.
It made sense of the senseless and vindicated her protestations of innocence, but in the end it did not help her.
Mick Keelty effectively destroyed any chance that John Ford’s testimony would help Schapelle, by branding it as hearsay before John even went to Bali. So, having ignored all these legitimate avenues of investigation with which to provide some form of secondary evidence, the Police chose instead to resort to underhanded tactics.
They tried twice to trick Schapelle into signing a confession, both times written in Indonesian which she could neither speak nor read at the time, the first one just hours after her arrest. They also tried to plant drugs on her once in the Polda visitor’s room. However, these measures all failed.
When Schapelle’s blood and urine tests returned a negative result for drug use, the Prosecution was in trouble
They had no hard secondary evidence and this is where they too resorted to underhanded tactics.
In a country where bribery and corruption is rife, and the dealings of the Police are above the law, they created their own secondary evidence, based on the testimony of the two Customs Officers and two Police Officers who were present in the airport at the time.
The two Police Officers could not speak English and the Custom’s Officer, Gusti Winata, who was their principal witness, chose to use an interpreter when questioned in court.
He was also given immunity from hard-line questioning by the Defence.
The testimony they gave in relation to Schapelle’s demeanour and actions, at the time the drugs were found, was seriously at odds with the testimony given by Schapelle. And yet, the CCTV footage from the camera above the Customs counter, which could and would have corroborated their version of events, had it been the truth, was never allowed into the courtroom, despite it being requested by Schapelle and her lawyer.
This footage would have given legitimacy to the Prosecution’s only secondary evidence, and as such, the fact that they did not request it themselves is significant.
It leads one to conclude, logically, that the testimony of these men was a pack of lies, and this footage would have rendered it inadmissible as evidence.
Not only should this camera footage have been allowed into the courtroom, the Judge himself should have insisted on it.
The testimony of these men was both crucial and damning, and Schapelle had every right to request this footage for the purpose of refuting it.
When the Judge failed to comply with the request he sided with the Prosecution, and his impartiality was seriously compromised.
For him and the other two Judges to find Schapelle ‘Guilty’ of importing a Class One Narcotic, without any proof that the drugs even came from Australia, and without attempting to confirm that the testimony presented as secondary evidence was actually true and correct, especially when this evidence was being disputed, was an outrageous travesty of justice.
They chose, or were ordered by a higher authority, to believe the lies of these men, yet they dismissed outright not only Schapelle’s sworn statements, but also her testimony, and the testimony of every one of her witnesses.
On the charge of trafficking, they found Schapelle ‘Guilty,’ even though the Prosecution did not present a single piece of evidence or testimony to support the charge.
In so doing, they were then at liberty, under Indonesian Law, to impose a sentence in excess of 10 years, this being the maximum allowable for possession and importation alone. Is it any wonder that Judge Linton Sirait had never acquitted a defendant in 500 previous drug related cases, when we look at how he handled Schapelle’s case?
Not one Judge in the panel of three had ever acquitted a defendant. In light of this, how can we possibly accept their verdict as a credible outcome, or condone the imposition of a 20 year sentence, one of the highest ever given for drug trafficking, more than murderers, rapists and terrorists often receive.
The fact is, we cannot, yet most Australians have.
20 years, in the squalor, hatred and violence of a third world prison, where the average life expectancy is only 10 years!
As to why the Balinese would plant drugs on an innocent traveller, if the drugs were indeed planted there, we do not know.
They could have been planted as a decoy, to allow the passage of a large quantity of hard drugs out of Bali that day to go unnoticed, drugs possibly destined for Australia.
They could also have been planted as an act of revenge because Australia, and Australians, are despised in Indonesia for bringing about the loss of East Timor, and for being the interfering force behind the conviction of Abu Bakar Bashir.
It would not have been Schapelle herself that they targeted, merely her unlocked boogie-board bag, which was the right shape and size for their purpose.
Being one of the last items of baggage loaded on the plane in Sydney, it was one of the first items unloaded in Bali.
Why the Balinese Police did not properly investigate the case appears hard to fathom, until we consider the following:
If the Balinese were the guilty party (there is no hard evidence that supports this notion), an investigation would have exposed their guilt.
To ensure a conviction against Schapelle and avoid exposure, the Police and Prosecution may have elected to play it safe, using unverified testimony as their secondary evidence, rather than risk an investigation which might unearth inconvenient truths regarding Schapelle’s innocence, and the potential guilt of their countrymen.
Did the Australian Federal Police assist in Undermining Schapelle Corby’s Defence? Yes! The CCTV footage from Brisbane Airport, which would have shown the flatness of Schapelle’s boogie-board bag as she checked it in, was never presented and its fate remains a mystery.
It is my belief, and the belief of many within the support movement, that the AFP seized and destroyed this footage.
The final story given by Qantas, no doubt upon instructions from a higher authority, after several earlier and conflicting stories had failed to deter those seeking this evidence for Schapelle’s defence – “The cameras were under repair.” Several people from Security also came forward claiming that the cameras were not switched on. See –

and –

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=9R3eeGLJKN4

A former airport Customs Officer who I worked with recently, told me that our major airports could have as many as three security camera systems operating at any one time, and the suggestion that the cameras were all, either under repair or switched off, is complete nonsense.
The cameras at Sydney International Airport baggage handling area were all found to be facing the wall the day Schapelle’s boogie-board bag passed through there, no doubt to ensure that the cocaine importation activity that was occurring there that day would not be recorded on videotape.
The AFP Commissioner, Mick Keelty, made a number of unnecessary and extremely damaging statements to the media during the course of Schapelle’s sham trial, which effectively ruined her “baggage handler defence.”
Did the Australian Federal Government sell Schapelle Corby’s Human Rights for Political Expediency? Yes!
Despite contributing $100,000 to her legal expenses, they essentially left Schapelle to her fate, claiming that they could not interfere in the judicial process of another country. They continued to maintain this stance even when the Balinese Police, Prosecution and Judges were blatantly breaking Indonesian Law in their endeavour to convict her.
They remained silent when her basic Human Rights were being brutally violated, rights supposedly guaranteed by the United Nations through the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
Australia was being accused of being a drug exporting nation for the first time, yet they failed to demand a sample of the marijuana for testing to determine if this was true.
They had every right to do this under the Mutual Assistance Treaty that exists between Australia and Indonesia.
They left the job of obtaining a sample to the AFP, when in fact, the Attorney General should have requested it from the Indonesian Supreme Court.
When a sample was denied, they accepted this without question, despite the importance of forensic testing to Schapelle’s defence.
When support for Schapelle in Australia was running at 90%, and her case was seriously damaging our relations with Indonesia, they adopted a pragmatic approach.
Even though they knew she was innocent, they decided that our relationship with Indonesia was more important than Schapelle’s human rights, so they commissioned the media to conduct the most shameful smear campaign ever waged against an Australian family, a campaign which continues to this day.
They wanted Australians believing that Schapelle Corby was guilty and that members of her family have been involved in the drug trade for decades, and they used the media to “manage” everyone’s opinion. See –

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=CYCuzE16tQE

This was done through a process of subterfuge.
Little by little, bit by bit, people’s perceptions were bent, creating distance between her sham trial in 2005 and the present day.
Using a simple six step methodology they slowly shifted focus from the truth to a false reality of their own creation, and along the way they made a lot of money through numerous fabricated stories. I say fabricated, because they were.
The Corby family are not involved in the drug trade and they do not have criminal records.
What’s more, I have copies of Police Certificates which prove this.
Yes, Schapelle’s two half brothers have had brushes with the law, but these matters are totally unrelated to Schapelle herself and do not involve the drug trade.
The government themselves did assist along the way with a number of damaging statements made by various ministers, but far and away their loudest statement came through the confiscation of the royalties from Schapelle’s book, “My Story.” By declaring the royalties from the book as being the proceeds of crime, they were stating that a crime had been committed.
And yet, the book was written for the express purpose of telling the Australian people that a crime had not been committed, at least, not by Schapelle Corby.
By confiscating the royalties, not only did the Australian government recoup the $100,000 they had contributed to her legal expenses, they also sent the Australian people the following message, albeit a lie – “We accept the verdict handed down by the Judge.
We believe she is guilty of a crime, so it’s okay for you to believe it as well.
Forget her, and move on with your lives.” It was a win-win situation for both the media and the government.
The only loser was Schapelle Corby, and being the daughter of a working class family, she was considered expendable.
Now, 5 and a half years later, Snow White has become the Wicked Witch in the minds of most Australians, and yet, she is as innocent now as she was then.

Bad things really do happen to good people.

Gandhi once said, “Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth. An error does not become the truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.” John F Kennedy also said, “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, but the myth, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. See –

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO51twevL2I

It is time for Schapelle Corby’s innocence to finally count for something.
It is time for everyone in Australia to reacquaint themselves with the truth, which they could all see in 2005 before their eyes were blinded and their hearts hardened by a process of spin doctoring.
Having reacquainted themselves, they need to rise up and help her, as she begged them to do back in October 2004.
Using people power, we must shame the Rudd Government into negotiating Schapelle’s immediate release from Kerobokan Prison on humanitarian grounds, not to serve out the rest of her sentence in an Australian prison, but to come home a Free Woman for much needed psychiatric treatment.
Do not allow yourself to be deceived into thinking that the government is trying to help, when they mention their efforts to secure a Prisoner Transfer Agreement with Indonesia. They know perfectly well that a PTA is a long way off and will not be finalised in time to help Schapelle.
Please, think for a moment how you would feel if you were in Schapelle Corby’s shoes right now.
Think how you would feel if she were your daughter, your sister or your best friend. Listen to this song at: http://www.artistsforschapelle.com/mr-yb.mp3

No matter how you decide to help Schapelle, please, DO NOT direct your anger towards the Indonesians, as this will NOT help her.

Schapelle is lost and afraid, suffering from a severe psychotic illness. At times her mind and body shut down and she sinks into a catatonic state. She has twice tried to bleed to death by slashing her arms and legs. She has regressed to a childlike state. She will not survive much longer. She is Innocent.
“THE INNOCENT SHOULD NOT BE PUNISHED”

  Schapelle’s Conditions and Life

http://www.schapelle.net/kerobokan.html

Schapelle exists in a living hell. She lives in squalid, overcrowded, inhumane conditions.
Her daily regime is almost unimaginable, and at certain times of the year, the humidity is unbearable. But this is her life.
This is how she has had to survive for years.
This is where she will be tomorrow, next week, next year, in ten years… unless something is done.
Her life is hell. It is little wonder that Schapelle has suffered from clinical depression and other illnesses. Who wouldn’t, in those conditions?
Kerobokan 1 Kerobokan 1 Kerobokan 1 Kerobokan 1
“Human rights activists estimate that life expectancy in the badly overcrowded jail compound would be between 10 and 15 years. The toilets in the jail’s squalid cells sit directly beside the benches where food is prepared. The jail was built in 1976 for 366 prisoners, but it holds 525. Corby shares her 5m-wide cell with seven other women. She is forced to wash with only a small bucket and ladle. The untreated water is fetched from a dilapidated well in the prison compound. Corby’s family says the jail food is inedible. It comes around on a big cart – a bucket of rice which her family says regularly contains stones, dirt and sticks, and a pot of some kind of stew. The pot is encrusted with drying and rotting food.” – Herald Sun
“Vertical metal bars interrupt views of shiny silver razor wire. Any tempting smell of local cuisine is replaced by the stench of sewage. The cool, clear ocean is far removed from these scummy washbuckets. This is life in Bali’s notorious Kerobokan Prison, a nightmare destination not featured in any travel brochure. “ – couriermail.co.au
“No TV, no internet, no sport – nothing. Just opressive torturous conditions, in a highly dangerous environment, in which AIDS is rife, and daily survival is a serious struggle. Time in these conditions bears no resemblance to time in a western prison. It is a genuine hell.”
“Those familiar with the Kerobokan paint a grim picture of the cramped and dirty cells, where poor sanitation and a lack of air conditioning against the tropical climate create a breeding ground for disease. Kerobokan’s prisoners are locked up for 20 hours a day in dark rooms which measure a mere three square metres. Larger 30-metre cells are usually crammed with up to 20 prisoners, according to prison doctor, Anak Agung Gede Hartawan.” “Common diseases include respiratory ailments and skin conditions, while many prisoners complain of headaches. Hartawan said 11 prisoners are confirmed carriers of HIV/AIDS but 30 are estimated to have the virus” – news24.com

101.119.14.107 Submitted on 2012/04/29 at 11:15 amThere is so much support for Schappel Corby. I wonder why people are so silent when it comes to the many other Australians railroaded abroad by corrupt officials who can presume the assistance of the Australian government no matter how spurious and irregular the cases they seek to prosecute?I will soon return voluntarily to Bali to face fabricated and vague criminal charges being prosecuted on the strength of bribes paid for by an Australian business adversary. He has admitted in writing to paying some $70,000 to various people including several people introduced to him as Jakarta police in return for their help to resolve his problems with me. Several of these people have given sworn affidavits that they were hired by this Australian to arrange my imprisonment by any available means and told by him to use the money to pay any Indonesian law enforcement officials willing to help. This was just the tip of the iceberg but bizarrely, it doesn’t seem to matter.In Australia it is a serious criminal offence for any Australian to bribe a foreign public official to obtain an illegitimate business advantage. But in this instance, why am I surprised that after two years of official indifference by the AFP, they have ruled out an investigation because, they assert, the “alleged” bribes paid by this man were not paid to obtain an illegitimate business advantage! Apparently bribing officials to corruptly imprison a business rival involves something other than an “illegitimate business advantage” and in the view of the AFP, that makes it okay.There is no evidence against me to support these fabricated charges. The allegations even if believed do not disclose a criminal offence. The prosecutor assigned to the case for two years repeatedly refused to prosecute the case having formally determined that there was no evidence and the allegations at best were a civil matter. For that he was threatened by his superior and transferred to another jurisdiction after the case against me was suddenly certified as ready for trial without his knowledge or consent. In the other jurisdiction, he was prosecuted for refusing to prosecute me and in due course fully vindicated but the case against me continues.What am I charged with? I am charged with fraud for allegedly failing to complete an order for goods after allegedly being paid $236,000. The problem is, I was never paid $236,000 by this man and never even discussed an order with him. I was paid a much, much lesser amount in connection with an agreement made by him to buy shares in my Indonesian company. Those payments were acknowledged by me and documented as having been paid for shares. He never disputed this until after making his fabricated police complaint with the help of local underworld case brokers some 10 months later. He has never disclosed to me or to police what goods he claims to have ordered at what price and in what quantities. He has never explained when and where this order was allegedly agreed. He has provided no evidence of any order related payments. He has not produced a contract, purchase order, email, letter of demand, proof of payment or any other document that even refers to any order. Conveniently, he claims it was all based on trust.While he actively pushes for my criminal prosecution in Bali, in related proceedings brought by me against him in the Supreme Court of NSW, he has for 7 months refused to file a defence and has formally disputed ever making his police complaint and allegation against me in Bali. In NSW, he disputes the authenticity of the very police documents signed by him in Bali which are the sole basis of my continuing criminal prosecution there. He is actively advancing my criminal prosecution in Indonesia on the sole strength of his improbable story and bribes, while in Australian proceedings he disputes having made his allegations against me in Bali. That is pure Kafka. And guess what? The Australian government, including the AFP, do not consider that they have any role whatsoever to play in this matter, except perhaps to assist the Indonesian government in my prosecution.Very soon I will be in Kerobokan prison with Schappele but as my “show trial” unfolds I doubt that it will raise a peep in the Australian press.

R I P Justice

Uploaded by NosajVonSosaj on Jun 6, 2009

A heavy music song about the injustice that has been inflicted on Schapelle Corby from both the Indonesian government and Australian Governments and their media outlets. As well as being screwed over and used by various people. The song R.I.P. Justice has been written,composed,recorded and performed by myself.

Lyrics:
Verse 1. An innocent Victim. Locked away.
For a crime. she didn’t commit.
Investigation. Only half complete.
Butcher the truth. destroy the proof.
Lock her away. Nothing more to say.
Never stood a chance against the Hanging Judge.

Chorus:
Evidence is not evidence.
Don’t bother me with evidence.
What happened in Australia is not evidence.
Here to Convict
Only here to convict.
500 Convictions.
No Aquitals
No CCTV
No DNA test.
No Justice.

Verse 2. Let her rot. Let her waste away.
That is what the people say.
Evidence to clear. Access Denied.
Freedom and basic rights.
All but stripped away.
Must respect the courts decision.
Despite the courts lack of vision.

Repeat Chorus.

Guitar Solo.

Verse 3. You make a fortune from her plight.
How can you say that this is right?
Lock her away nothing more to say.
Butcher the truth and destroy the proof.
Life and Death is just a game.
And you my friend have got no shame.

Chorus.

Sex In The Desert – Eyes Wired Shut: For Schapelle Corby

This is a stunningly powerful rock anthem for Schapelle Corby by an outstanding band. Full of passion, it covers the injustice, the deception & corruption, and the sale of her human rights by a morally corrupt government. It could have been you or me.

Schapelle was sentenced 20 years in a hell hole in Indonesia in 2005 following the most horrific of show trials. They refused to test the marijuana for country origin, refused to DNA or fingerprint, refused to retrieve CCTV footage from the airport, and so much more. They then burned the evidence so it could never be used to free her. The judge was a rubber stamp: he had never acquitted anyone in 500 cases.

Her government deserted her, deciding to appease the Indonesians. Their strategic political relationship with Indonesia trumped her human rights. The Australian media, with a terrible reputation across the world, were then employed to cover their tracks – to hide the abuse and the truth from the public, and to smear her family.

She is still there now, in poor health, suffering day on day, week on week, year on year. She needs YOU.

Please don’t walk away…

What happened to Schapelle Corey?

Last updated: 17 June 2005

Event Timeline

October 7th 2005

Schapelle is packing to go to Bali to celebrate Sister Mercedes birthday; her father Michael is present as she packs. A plastic strip is missing from the boogie board and Michael fixes the strip, and is present when the boogie board goes into the bag. Michael Corby states ‘She didn’t have the bloody things’ (drugs).

Schapelle leaves for mother Ros’ house picking up Richards on the way. The four traveling companions Katrina Richards, Ally McComb, James (Schapelles brother) stay the night at Ros’ so she can drive them to the airport.

October 8th

The travelers wake, in the garage as they are about to leave Ally gave Schapelle a pair of flippers she had borrowed, McCombs, Richards and James all gave testimony that they seen Schapelle open the Boogie board bag and place the flippers inside. They all stated that the garage was brightly lit and the Yellow boogie board was the only item in the bag.

5.33 am

Closed circuit cameras observe Schapelle and her female companions checked in their luggage 3 suitcases and the boogie board bag at Brisbane airport. All the bags are weighed together and total 65 kgs. (This is crucial to the case, but Bali customs and police ignored this). Images recorded on the camera were deleted 25 days later, and the cameras were not working properly.

6.00am

Flight leaves for Sydney.

7.30am

Arrive at Sydney airport, change to International terminal where the group meets up with friend Jodie Powers who is catching a later flight to Bali to celebrate Mercedes Birthday.

9.30am

Group leaves Sydney International airport for Bali, Schapelle tells Jodie they will see her at the pool at 5pm in Bali for a drink.

2.30pm Bali time (4.30 EST)

Plane arrives at Ngurah Rai Airport, Denpasar. The boogie bag is set aside from the other bags, which are on the carousel and as Schapelle is struggling with luggage, Ally asked James is asked to assist with the bags. James a weight lifter and rugby player claims he did not notice anything about the bag as he was just glad the plane hadn’t crashed.

Most people were getting their luggage checked. The customs officer asked James if it was his Boogie board, James said yes, but Schapelle said ‘No It’s mine’. Schapelle placed the boogie board bag on the counter and opened the zip. She noticed that the zip was done up in the middle of the bag, which she thought was strange as she always did the zip up to one side. Upon opening the bag Schapelle instantly seen something in the bag.

Inside the bag on top of the yellow boogie bag and under the flippers was 4.1 kilograms marijuana in two plastic bags, one inside the other, the size of a pillow case. The outer bag was a vacuum space bag.

James was taken to an interview room while Schapelle waited outside. James was ordered to remove the contents of the bag. Schapelle was bought into the room where the contents of the bag were on the floor, she was shocked. Schapelle admitted owning the bag, the boogie board and the flippers. She insisted she had no idea who owned the drugs and were they came from McComb was allowed to join them about 30 minutes later and was also shocked at what she seen in the interview room.

Katrina Richards called Mercedes, who spoke to a police officer. Mercedes then went to the airport, where custom officers were trying to get Schapelle to sign a statement. Mercedes warned her not to sign anything. Mercedes, Schapelle and McComb were insisting that custom officer’s stop handling the bag and take fingerprints. The officers said it was too late as it had been contaminated, the officials laughed at Mercedes.

Two hours after Corby was detained, customs were aware that there were four baggage tags in her name. The bags were only a few metres away, with Katrina Richards, who was anxiously guarding them. No attempt was made to search or weigh the bags, even though Corby demanded it. Later, when Corby had lawyers, it was too late. The bags had left the airport.

James and Schapelle were taken to a police cell were they were given fish and rice to eat, they were told to go to sleep.

Holes in the argument

From the outset, the customs officers neglected four basic investigative procedures.

They handled the outside drug bag with unprotected hands, taking no precautions against contaminating the only item of evidence. They handled the bottom of the internal bag when they took out the marijuana.

First McComb and then Mercedes, when she got to the airport interview room, protested, demanding the bags be fingerprinted. They got the same reply. “Too late. Too many people have touched them.” Mercedes said she replied: “Well, stop it right now.” They laughed at her.

But Corby’s lawyer, Lily Sri Rahaya Lubis, and her assistant, Vasu Rasiah, insist that most of the bag that actually contained the drugs was still clean because it had not been removed from the external bag. Only the bottom of the internal bag had been handled.

The fingerprint evidence is basic and important. If Corby’s prints are on either bag, she is condemned. But if they are not, it is strong evidence for the defence, although not conclusive. Corby told the lawyers to press hard. “They won’t find my fingerprints,” she said.

In late December, almost three months after Corby’s arrest and after repeated requests to have the evidence fingerprinted, the lawyers confronted the director of the Bali narcotics bureau, Senior Commissioner Bambang Sugiarto, who was in charge of the investigation.

Sugiarto had the bags brought to his office in Lubis’s presence. “He confirmed the inside bag had not been removed. He said he would have it fingerprinted,” Lubis said. But still it was not done.

She says the bag remained uncontaminated when it went to the prosecutor with other evidence on January 6.

But that changed on February 3, when Corby made her second court appearance. In front of the three judges, the internal drug bag was taken out of the external bag and handled freely by a number of court officials, including customs officer Winata, prosecutor Wiswantanu and assistant judge I Gusti Lanang Dauh.

At the close of court that day, the frustrated defence lawyers made a formal application to have the bags fingerprinted. Chief Judge Linton Sirait said he would consider it. “There’s still plenty of time,” he said. Two court sittings later, the lawyers are still waiting for his decision. Even now, they insist, it is not too late.

A second basic procedure was overlooked at the airport. Two hours after Corby was detained, customs were aware that there were four baggage tags in her name. The bags were only a few metres away, with Katrina Richards, who was anxiously guarding them.

The moment Corby claimed that the marijuana had been put into boogie board bag during transit, the weight of the bags became crucial evidence. If the bags weighed 4.1 kilograms – the weight of the marijuana – more in Bali than they did in Brisbane when they were checked in, then she was telling the truth. If the weights were the same, she was lying.

No attempt was made to search or weigh the bags, even though Corby demanded it. Later, when Corby had lawyers, it was too late. The bags had left the airport. The prosecution made no mention of this or of the failure to take fingerprints.

The third overlooked procedure is even more basic. The customs area at Ngurah Rai Airport is monitored by closed circuit cameras, which observed Corby’s actions. They could corroborate or contradict her account. But the prosecutor said they were not checked. The defence has asked to see the tapes. The prosecutor said he would check to see if they were available.

There was a fourth failure. The X-ray machine that detected the marijuana is not equipped to take photographs. So no image was available to show the location of the marijuana in the boogie board bag before it got to customs.

The prosecution closed its case on February 17. It relies entirely on indisputable evidence that the marijuana was found in Corby’s boogie board bag and on the contested testimony of two customs officers and two police officers about her actions and responses.

Winata’s English-language proficiency was not established and will be challenged. Corby insists her responses were misunderstood. She says his English was not good and they had difficulty understanding each other. McComb, who also spoke to Winata that day, says the same.

What the defence team argued
(continued from above Sydney Morning Herald (Click here for full story)

Why, if Corby was smuggling the drugs into Bali, did she not take the basic precaution of putting a lock on her boogie board bag?

Why did she not take another obvious precaution and put the drugs behind the boogie board, which would have concealed them from anyone opening the bag? Instead, they were in front of the boogie board, visible the moment the bag was opened.

Why did she not try to conceal the contents of the plastic bags by giving them a protective wrapping? Instead, the marijuana is easily visible through clear plastic.

Why would anyone risk a death sentence smuggling marijuana from Australia to Bali, where it will sell for much less than they could get in Australia? This is not only the biggest marijuana importation into Bali intercepted by customs. It is the only one.

Where is the police evidence that Corby or any of her family had connections with drug traffickers? Bali police say they investigated her “network” in Bali – meaning Mercedes and her husband – but found nothing incriminating.

The Australian Federal Police confirm Corby has no criminal record. Queensland police have no intelligence to connect her to drugs. The wholesale price for good quality hydroponic marijuana in Brisbane is $4000 for half a kilogram. Where did a woman who works in a fish and chip shop get the money to buy 4.1kilograms?

The defence will argue that the marijuana was put in the boogie board bag in Brisbane by a corrupt employee with “airside” access, most likely for pick-up in Sydney, where the street price is $65,000, by another corrupt worker with access. But the pick-up was somehow missed – tight security, watchful baggage handlers, bad timing – and the marijuana travelled on to Bali. Or it is possible, the defence will argue, that the drugs were placed in the wrong bag on the wrong flight.

They will argue that the positioning of the marijuana in front of the boogie board indicates it was inserted in haste during transit.

They will argue that whoever planted the drugs was responsible for changing the zipper arrangement, zipping the bag from both sides, meeting in the middle. And that when customs opened and shut the boogie board bag, they carefully repeated this procedure to conceal their intrusion.

The problem is the defence can establish a lot of doubt but no absolute proof. From the outset, prosecutor Wiswantanu insisted that the only way he would accept that Corby was innocent was proof – visual or by weight – that the marijuana was not in the boogie board bag when she checked it in at Brisbane Airport. Or visual evidence of someone putting the drugs in the boogie board bag.

Any chance of getting that evidence has gone. The security camera tapes which might have helped – the prosecution as well as the defence – have been wiped. The luggage was not weighed in Bali.

Qantas says the tapes were wiped on November 2, two weeks before they received a letter from the lawyers officially requesting copies. After the letter, dated November 16, Qantas got forensic experts to see if any images could be recovered but this was not successful.

But Corby’s lawyers say their first request for the tapes was made on October 14, six days after Corby’s arrest, and was repeated a number of times.

The lawyers say that in the last week of October, the Qantas security official told them the tapes were going to be destroyed within a week. On October 28, they sent the security official an email, noting this, and requesting copies of the tapes before they were wiped. This did not happen.

Prosecutor Wiswantanu is demanding the death penalty. He has successfully prosecuted six foreigners for importing drugs. One of them got the death penalty. Corby is fighting for her life.

The Australian – Sian Powell – 21/05/05 (Click here for full story)

One of Corby’s chief lawyers, Erwin Siregar, asked the two police officer witnesses, Wayan Suwita and I Gusti Ngurah Bagus Astawa, why no fingerprints had been taken from the ziplock plastic sack inside the bodyboard bag. Suwita answered: “We knew it was marijuana, so it wasn’t necessary.” Siregar pointed out that the crime of drug smuggling potentially carried the death penalty and asked if that made a “perfect investigation” more important.

“It’s not my duty to answer that,” Suwita replied. “Ask my superior.” Astawa also said he did not know whether fingerprints were taken. “It’s not my field,” he explained. Asked whether fingerprints were necessary in Corby’s case, he replied, “No.”

Fingerprinting is not a common procedure in Indonesia, where the under-resourced police force is hard-pressed to deal with burgeoning crime.

The defence, though, submitted transcripts of television footage showing gloved police officers dealing with the nine Australians recently arrested for heroin smuggling in Bali. Why gloves for the Bali Nine and not for Schapelle, came the question from the defence.

A transcript of an Indonesian TV interview with Bali drug squad chief Bambang Sugiarto was also tendered to the court by the defence after the closing addresses. Sugiarto said Corby’s “condition” was only 50 per cent, apparently referring to shortcomings in the fingerprinting and videotaping elements of the investigation.

Countering the defence’s queries about the failure to fingerprint the plastic sack of marijuana, prosecutor Ni Wayan Sinaryati told the court it was unnecessary.

“In this case, the criminal perpetrator was caught red-handed by the Customs officers at the airport,” Sinaryati said.

The defence was also unable to prove the weight of Corby’s bag when she checked in at Brisbane airport, since all the bags were weighed together and police in Bali did not weigh all the bags for an overall comparison. Nor did Balinese police take up an AFP request to test the marijuana to determine its origin; there was no need, they said, they already had a case.

Below are photos of Schapelle’s boogie board bag found with the drugs in them.

How can you help?

The Corbys have received advice from their legal team and have asked for Schapelles supporters to cease all fundraising activities, donation collection, rallies and protests from this point on.

The bottom line is we need to respect this decision and understand that we must comply to help ensure both the safety of Schapelle and also the positive outcome of her appeal.

While it may seem that this is the end of road – it most certainly is not. There are still many things you can do to support Schapelle and show you believe she is innocent.

Email Prime Minister John Howard and express your concerns not only for Schapelle but for the slack security measures in place at airports in Australia:

http://www.pm.gov.au/email.cfm

You can write to your local Member of Parliament; and your Federal Member of Parliament to voice your support for her plight. Please always remember to be respectful when you make contact.

The contact email addressees for these members can be found here: http://www.aph.gov.au/house/members/Email.asp

You can also directly support Schapelle by sending your letters and cards to her. I advise against emailing as it is very difficult to get them to her.

Below is quoted from Kay Danes from Foreign Prisoner Support Service, advocating on behalf of the Corby family.

Quote:

It would be helpful if all supporters would address their letters directly to Schapelle and not electronically or via Mercedes whom I spoke with last night [Sat 4 June 2005]. Whilst the family appreciate all the emails and letters, they simply cannot cope with the logistical aspects the influx of emails creates.

It is imperative that letters be respectful to both the Indonesian justice system and to the Kerobokan Prison authorities. It is good public relations and will help the rapport that Schapelle needs to establish with those detaining her. I would go so far as to include text “Thank you to the Kerobokan Staff for allowing me to send letters to Schapelle Corby”.

Letters and care packages can be sent to Schapelle:

Schapelle Corby C/- LPM Kerobokan

Jl. Tangkuban Perahu

Kerobokan, Denpasar

80117 Bali, INDONESIA

I have been to Kerobokan prison on a number of occasions as both friend to Schapelle and FPSS advocate. I can confirm that mail and items do get through to the prisoners. Prisoners are called into a room where they are handed unopened mail. The prisoner is then invited to open the mail in front of the officers. In general, the prisoner receives everything that is sent, including money inside the envelope. But as a general process, prisoners may share some items as a show of good will to prison staff. This is common in post prisons around the world. Just be sure to itemize everything you send.

Foreign Prisoner Support Service would like to thank everyone for their continued support to Schapelle and consideration to the Corby Family’s request for privacy.

Regards,

Kay Danes

Expendable: Sacrificing Humanity for Corruption in Australia
Schapelle Corby sits in a Bali jail so corrupt
officials can save face.

Maggie Parke
Activist Post

A unique and extraordinary film has been released this week, free of charge, on the internet, via simultaneous upload to networks in territories as diverse as Russia, India, the United States, Japan, China, Vietnam, France, South Africa, and Germany. It is a film, however, which will certainly have long term implications for the state of Australia.

‘Expendable’, produced under conditions of strict secrecy in the US, demonstrates a lengthy series of corrupt and criminal acts by Australian politicians, sanctioned collectively by an Australian government. These involve not only activities at ministerial level, but central roles for Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers, and a number of prominent corporations.

Demonstrate is the operative word, because these are not allegations. Every abuse of power covered in the film is supported by documented proof, usually in the form of cables and correspondence between government ministers. These were pre-published on the Expendable website for public scrutiny.

Further, collectively, the movie and supporting dossiers are currently being collated for submission to the United Nations, and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

THE MOVIE
The ‘Expendable’ film documents the case of Schapelle Corby, a young Australian woman, who was sentenced to 20 years in an Indonesian prison in 2005, when 4.2kg of marijuana was found in her bag as she collected it on arrival in Bali.

The movie tracks the Australian government’s response, which included the willful withholding of vital primary evidence. This included the information that 5kg had been added to the weight of her bags after check-in, and that the offending bag was the only one not screened at Sydney airport, which she passed through on route.

The need to hide the systemic scale of post 9-11 corruption at Australian airports, including within the AFP, and the strategic policy of the appeasement of Indonesia, frame these, and a whole series of other acts of hostility against her.

The steps taken to cover this policy, post her trial, are equally appalling. The film shows, supported by indisputable government records, how public opinion was managed, how Schapelle Corby was deprived of funds for an extraordinary appeal, how the AFP’s role was hidden, how known abuses of her human rights were ignored, and how a range of other hostile activities were initiated.

From the blurb issued with the film itself: “It presents, and demonstrates, the crushing, pre-meditated, and often brutal acts which a western government is prepared to inflict upon a helpless citizen in pursuit of political expediency.”

THE AUSTRALIAN MEDIA
The lack of plurality of ownership of the Australian media is a point made early in the film segment covering the state-owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). The implications of this resonate to this day.

In Australia, dead men cannot sue, a device which, since the death of Schapelle Corby’s father, has been ruthlessly exploited by unethical publishers, to spin and re-spin wholly disproved smears. The ‘Expendable’ producers present several concise ‘insider’ interviews, which dramatically expose the shady world which operates under the banner of journalism.

Presenting such objectionable material is by no means limited to the ABC, with the press organs of Fairfax Media, for example, also being prominent.

It is within this climate that, since the Expendable Project began publishing government cables in September 2011, not a single column inch of coverage has been forthcoming in the Australian mainstream media.

Incredibly, authentic correspondence proving gross misconduct and a series of corrupt acts by an Australian government, has been blanked completely,whilst fabricated paid-for smears against a dead man have continued unabated.

News of the release of the film itself is likely to meet a similar fate, as is the involvement of the ICC, the UN, and other international agencies.

SCHAPELLE CORBY
Schapelle Corby herself, enduring her eighth year in an Indonesian prison cell, is now mentally ill. At the end of last year, she attempted suicide, via a huge overdose of the drugs she is prescribed for her psychosis.

Even this, however, has proved to be insufficient for her government to negotiate her release, or for the Indonesians to demonstrate even a hint of mercy or compassion. It appears that, as the film states, “she is dying a slow torturous death, in squalor, devoid of human rights, and abandoned by her government.”

EXPENDABLE THE MOVIE
This film is a wake up call for any traveler, any individual who places trust in political leaders or governments, and any humanitarian who believes that human decency will always prevail.

It creates a new perspective of the nation state of Australia, and presents a stark warning of the dangers of an overly cozy press caucus.

It is a film you will not forget.

Missing (Song for Schapelle Corby) – Steve Coffey & The Lokels
Uploaded by FreeSchapelle on Sep 8, 2009

This stunning track articulates the painful longing Schapelle Corby’s family must feel every day of every week, whilst Schapelle continues to suffer in the hell of an Indonesian prison.

Schapelle Corby, is an innocent who is barely surviving under the crushing weight of a political 20 year sentence for importing 4kg of marijuana, a crime she clearly did not commit. She was subjected to the most shocking of show trials, with evidence simply dismissed, ignored, and then incredibly, burned. She is now diagnosed mentally ill… she is dying.

Her government? They have deserted her for political convenience. Her human rights were sold for appeasement, and then the Australian media were used to cover the governments tracks.

Hopefully this song will help spread awareness of Schapelle’s terrible situation and plight. It will help Schapelle’s cries for justice to be heard, and her tears to be seen.

Please pass on this story, and this song and video to friends, family, and to anyone with compassion and love in their heart.

Please Don’t Walk Away… please help to save Schapelle.

    1) the original idea was created from a jam session that took place in Coff’s Harbour, NSW, 1969, while i was in the DMS band.
    2) a year later i cobbled a second part, the chorus, onto
    the original verse. i then wrote the verse lyrics.
    3) at a rehearsal at the Hornsby Police Boy’s Club in late 1970, i pulled this out and asked the vocalist to complete the chorus, as i’d gotten bored with it.
    4) he did, and also named it.
    5) all the musical and production detailing came from me, with little or no input from other band members or Festival Records.
    6) Bon Scott did play recorder on this.

    What happened to Schapelle Corey?

    Last updated: 17 June 2005

    Event Timeline

    October 7th 2005

    Schapelle is packing to go to Bali to celebrate Sister Mercedes birthday; her father Michael is present as she packs. A plastic strip is missing from the boogie board and Michael fixes the strip, and is present when the boogie board goes into the bag. Michael Corby states ‘She didn’t have the bloody things’ (drugs).

    Schapelle leaves for mother Ros’ house picking up Richards on the way. The four traveling companions Katrina Richards, Ally McComb, James (Schapelles brother) stay the night at Ros’ so she can drive them to the airport.

    October 8th

    The travelers wake, in the garage as they are about to leave Ally gave Schapelle a pair of flippers she had borrowed, McCombs, Richards and James all gave testimony that they seen Schapelle open the Boogie board bag and place the flippers inside. They all stated that the garage was brightly lit and the Yellow boogie board was the only item in the bag.

    5.33 am

    Closed circuit cameras observe Schapelle and her female companions checked in their luggage 3 suitcases and the boogie board bag at Brisbane airport. All the bags are weighed together and total 65 kgs. (This is crucial to the case, but Bali customs and police ignored this). Images recorded on the camera were deleted 25 days later, and the cameras were not working properly.

    6.00am

    Flight leaves for Sydney.

    7.30am

    Arrive at Sydney airport, change to International terminal where the group meets up with friend Jodie Powers who is catching a later flight to Bali to celebrate Mercedes Birthday.

    9.30am

    Group leaves Sydney International airport for Bali, Schapelle tells Jodie they will see her at the pool at 5pm in Bali for a drink.

    2.30pm Bali time (4.30 EST)

    Plane arrives at Ngurah Rai Airport, Denpasar. The boogie bag is set aside from the other bags, which are on the carousel and as Schapelle is struggling with luggage, Ally asked James is asked to assist with the bags. James a weight lifter and rugby player claims he did not notice anything about the bag as he was just glad the plane hadn’t crashed.

    Most people were getting their luggage checked. The customs officer asked James if it was his Boogie board, James said yes, but Schapelle said ‘No It’s mine’. Schapelle placed the boogie board bag on the counter and opened the zip. She noticed that the zip was done up in the middle of the bag, which she thought was strange as she always did the zip up to one side. Upon opening the bag Schapelle instantly seen something in the bag.

    Inside the bag on top of the yellow boogie bag and under the flippers was 4.1 kilograms marijuana in two plastic bags, one inside the other, the size of a pillow case. The outer bag was a vacuum space bag.

    James was taken to an interview room while Schapelle waited outside. James was ordered to remove the contents of the bag. Schapelle was bought into the room where the contents of the bag were on the floor, she was shocked. Schapelle admitted owning the bag, the boogie board and the flippers. She insisted she had no idea who owned the drugs and were they came from McComb was allowed to join them about 30 minutes later and was also shocked at what she seen in the interview room.

    Katrina Richards called Mercedes, who spoke to a police officer. Mercedes then went to the airport, where custom officers were trying to get Schapelle to sign a statement. Mercedes warned her not to sign anything. Mercedes, Schapelle and McComb were insisting that custom officer’s stop handling the bag and take fingerprints. The officers said it was too late as it had been contaminated, the officials laughed at Mercedes.

    Two hours after Corby was detained, customs were aware that there were four baggage tags in her name. The bags were only a few metres away, with Katrina Richards, who was anxiously guarding them. No attempt was made to search or weigh the bags, even though Corby demanded it. Later, when Corby had lawyers, it was too late. The bags had left the airport.

    James and Schapelle were taken to a police cell were they were given fish and rice to eat, they were told to go to sleep.

    Holes in the argument

    From the outset, the customs officers neglected four basic investigative procedures.

    They handled the outside drug bag with unprotected hands, taking no precautions against contaminating the only item of evidence. They handled the bottom of the internal bag when they took out the marijuana.

    First McComb and then Mercedes, when she got to the airport interview room, protested, demanding the bags be fingerprinted. They got the same reply. “Too late. Too many people have touched them.” Mercedes said she replied: “Well, stop it right now.” They laughed at her.

    But Corby’s lawyer, Lily Sri Rahaya Lubis, and her assistant, Vasu Rasiah, insist that most of the bag that actually contained the drugs was still clean because it had not been removed from the external bag. Only the bottom of the internal bag had been handled.

    The fingerprint evidence is basic and important. If Corby’s prints are on either bag, she is condemned. But if they are not, it is strong evidence for the defence, although not conclusive. Corby told the lawyers to press hard. “They won’t find my fingerprints,” she said.

    In late December, almost three months after Corby’s arrest and after repeated requests to have the evidence fingerprinted, the lawyers confronted the director of the Bali narcotics bureau, Senior Commissioner Bambang Sugiarto, who was in charge of the investigation.

    Sugiarto had the bags brought to his office in Lubis’s presence. “He confirmed the inside bag had not been removed. He said he would have it fingerprinted,” Lubis said. But still it was not done.

    She says the bag remained uncontaminated when it went to the prosecutor with other evidence on January 6.

    But that changed on February 3, when Corby made her second court appearance. In front of the three judges, the internal drug bag was taken out of the external bag and handled freely by a number of court officials, including customs officer Winata, prosecutor Wiswantanu and assistant judge I Gusti Lanang Dauh.

    At the close of court that day, the frustrated defence lawyers made a formal application to have the bags fingerprinted. Chief Judge Linton Sirait said he would consider it. “There’s still plenty of time,” he said. Two court sittings later, the lawyers are still waiting for his decision. Even now, they insist, it is not too late.

    A second basic procedure was overlooked at the airport. Two hours after Corby was detained, customs were aware that there were four baggage tags in her name. The bags were only a few metres away, with Katrina Richards, who was anxiously guarding them.

    The moment Corby claimed that the marijuana had been put into boogie board bag during transit, the weight of the bags became crucial evidence. If the bags weighed 4.1 kilograms – the weight of the marijuana – more in Bali than they did in Brisbane when they were checked in, then she was telling the truth. If the weights were the same, she was lying.

    No attempt was made to search or weigh the bags, even though Corby demanded it. Later, when Corby had lawyers, it was too late. The bags had left the airport. The prosecution made no mention of this or of the failure to take fingerprints.

    The third overlooked procedure is even more basic. The customs area at Ngurah Rai Airport is monitored by closed circuit cameras, which observed Corby’s actions. They could corroborate or contradict her account. But the prosecutor said they were not checked. The defence has asked to see the tapes. The prosecutor said he would check to see if they were available.

    There was a fourth failure. The X-ray machine that detected the marijuana is not equipped to take photographs. So no image was available to show the location of the marijuana in the boogie board bag before it got to customs.

    The prosecution closed its case on February 17. It relies entirely on indisputable evidence that the marijuana was found in Corby’s boogie board bag and on the contested testimony of two customs officers and two police officers about her actions and responses.

    Winata’s English-language proficiency was not established and will be challenged. Corby insists her responses were misunderstood. She says his English was not good and they had difficulty understanding each other. McComb, who also spoke to Winata that day, says the same.

    What the defence team argued
    (continued from above Sydney Morning Herald (Click here for full story)

    Why, if Corby was smuggling the drugs into Bali, did she not take the basic precaution of putting a lock on her boogie board bag?

    Why did she not take another obvious precaution and put the drugs behind the boogie board, which would have concealed them from anyone opening the bag? Instead, they were in front of the boogie board, visible the moment the bag was opened.

    Why did she not try to conceal the contents of the plastic bags by giving them a protective wrapping? Instead, the marijuana is easily visible through clear plastic.

    Why would anyone risk a death sentence smuggling marijuana from Australia to Bali, where it will sell for much less than they could get in Australia? This is not only the biggest marijuana importation into Bali intercepted by customs. It is the only one.

    Where is the police evidence that Corby or any of her family had connections with drug traffickers? Bali police say they investigated her “network” in Bali – meaning Mercedes and her husband – but found nothing incriminating.

    The Australian Federal Police confirm Corby has no criminal record. Queensland police have no intelligence to connect her to drugs. The wholesale price for good quality hydroponic marijuana in Brisbane is $4000 for half a kilogram. Where did a woman who works in a fish and chip shop get the money to buy 4.1kilograms?

    The defence will argue that the marijuana was put in the boogie board bag in Brisbane by a corrupt employee with “airside” access, most likely for pick-up in Sydney, where the street price is $65,000, by another corrupt worker with access. But the pick-up was somehow missed – tight security, watchful baggage handlers, bad timing – and the marijuana travelled on to Bali. Or it is possible, the defence will argue, that the drugs were placed in the wrong bag on the wrong flight.

    They will argue that the positioning of the marijuana in front of the boogie board indicates it was inserted in haste during transit.

    They will argue that whoever planted the drugs was responsible for changing the zipper arrangement, zipping the bag from both sides, meeting in the middle. And that when customs opened and shut the boogie board bag, they carefully repeated this procedure to conceal their intrusion.

    The problem is the defence can establish a lot of doubt but no absolute proof. From the outset, prosecutor Wiswantanu insisted that the only way he would accept that Corby was innocent was proof – visual or by weight – that the marijuana was not in the boogie board bag when she checked it in at Brisbane Airport. Or visual evidence of someone putting the drugs in the boogie board bag.

    Any chance of getting that evidence has gone. The security camera tapes which might have helped – the prosecution as well as the defence – have been wiped. The luggage was not weighed in Bali.

    Qantas says the tapes were wiped on November 2, two weeks before they received a letter from the lawyers officially requesting copies. After the letter, dated November 16, Qantas got forensic experts to see if any images could be recovered but this was not successful.

    But Corby’s lawyers say their first request for the tapes was made on October 14, six days after Corby’s arrest, and was repeated a number of times.

    The lawyers say that in the last week of October, the Qantas security official told them the tapes were going to be destroyed within a week. On October 28, they sent the security official an email, noting this, and requesting copies of the tapes before they were wiped. This did not happen.

    Prosecutor Wiswantanu is demanding the death penalty. He has successfully prosecuted six foreigners for importing drugs. One of them got the death penalty. Corby is fighting for her life.

    The Australian – Sian Powell – 21/05/05 (Click here for full story)

    One of Corby’s chief lawyers, Erwin Siregar, asked the two police officer witnesses, Wayan Suwita and I Gusti Ngurah Bagus Astawa, why no fingerprints had been taken from the ziplock plastic sack inside the bodyboard bag. Suwita answered: “We knew it was marijuana, so it wasn’t necessary.” Siregar pointed out that the crime of drug smuggling potentially carried the death penalty and asked if that made a “perfect investigation” more important.

    “It’s not my duty to answer that,” Suwita replied. “Ask my superior.” Astawa also said he did not know whether fingerprints were taken. “It’s not my field,” he explained. Asked whether fingerprints were necessary in Corby’s case, he replied, “No.”

    Fingerprinting is not a common procedure in Indonesia, where the under-resourced police force is hard-pressed to deal with burgeoning crime.

    The defence, though, submitted transcripts of television footage showing gloved police officers dealing with the nine Australians recently arrested for heroin smuggling in Bali. Why gloves for the Bali Nine and not for Schapelle, came the question from the defence.

    A transcript of an Indonesian TV interview with Bali drug squad chief Bambang Sugiarto was also tendered to the court by the defence after the closing addresses. Sugiarto said Corby’s “condition” was only 50 per cent, apparently referring to shortcomings in the fingerprinting and videotaping elements of the investigation.

    Countering the defence’s queries about the failure to fingerprint the plastic sack of marijuana, prosecutor Ni Wayan Sinaryati told the court it was unnecessary.

    “In this case, the criminal perpetrator was caught red-handed by the Customs officers at the airport,” Sinaryati said.

    The defence was also unable to prove the weight of Corby’s bag when she checked in at Brisbane airport, since all the bags were weighed together and police in Bali did not weigh all the bags for an overall comparison. Nor did Balinese police take up an AFP request to test the marijuana to determine its origin; there was no need, they said, they already had a case.

    How can you help?

    The Corbys have received advice from their legal team and have asked for Schapelles supporters to cease all fundraising activities, donation collection, rallies and protests from this point on.

    The bottom line is we need to respect this decision and understand that we must comply to help ensure both the safety of Schapelle and also the positive outcome of her appeal.

    While it may seem that this is the end of road – it most certainly is not. There are still many things you can do to support Schapelle and show you believe she is innocent.

    Email Prime Minister John Howard and express your concerns not only for Schapelle but for the slack security measures in place at airports in Australia:

    http://www.pm.gov.au/email.cfm

    You can write to your local Member of Parliament; and your Federal Member of Parliament to voice your support for her plight. Please always remember to be respectful when you make contact.

    The contact email addressees for these members can be found here: http://www.aph.gov.au/house/members/Email.asp

    You can also directly support Schapelle by sending your letters and cards to her. I advise against emailing as it is very difficult to get them to her.

    Below is quoted from Kay Danes from Foreign Prisoner Support Service, advocating on behalf of the Corby family.

    Quote:

    It would be helpful if all supporters would address their letters directly to Schapelle and not electronically or via Mercedes whom I spoke with last night [Sat 4 June 2005]. Whilst the family appreciate all the emails and letters, they simply cannot cope with the logistical aspects the influx of emails creates.

    It is imperative that letters be respectful to both the Indonesian justice system and to the Kerobokan Prison authorities. It is good public relations and will help the rapport that Schapelle needs to establish with those detaining her. I would go so far as to include text “Thank you to the Kerobokan Staff for allowing me to send letters to Schapelle Corby”.

    Letters and care packages can be sent to Schapelle:

    Schapelle Corby C/- LPM Kerobokan

    Jl. Tangkuban Perahu

    Kerobokan, Denpasar

    80117 Bali, INDONESIA

    I have been to Kerobokan prison on a number of occasions as both friend to Schapelle and FPSS advocate. I can confirm that mail and items do get through to the prisoners. Prisoners are called into a room where they are handed unopened mail. The prisoner is then invited to open the mail in front of the officers. In general, the prisoner receives everything that is sent, including money inside the envelope. But as a general process, prisoners may share some items as a show of good will to prison staff. This is common in post prisons around the world. Just be sure to itemize everything you send.

    Foreign Prisoner Support Service would like to thank everyone for their continued support to Schapelle and consideration to the Corby Family’s request for privacy.

  5. Sex In The Desert – Eyes Wired Shut: For Schapelle Corby

    This is a stunningly powerful rock anthem for Schapelle Corby by an outstanding band. Full of passion, it covers the injustice, the deception & corruption, and the sale of her human rights by a morally corrupt government. It could have been you or me.

    Schapelle was sentenced 20 years in a hell hole in Indonesia in 2005 following the most horrific of show trials. They refused to test the marijuana for country origin, refused to DNA or fingerprint, refused to retrieve CCTV footage from the airport, and so much more. They then burned the evidence so it could never be used to free her. The judge was a rubber stamp: he had never acquitted anyone in 500 cases.

    Her government deserted her, deciding to appease the Indonesians. Their strategic political relationship with Indonesia trumped her human rights. The Australian media, with a terrible reputation across the world, were then employed to cover their tracks – to hide the abuse and the truth from the public, and to smear her family.

    She is still there now, in poor health, suffering day on day, week on week, year on year. She needs YOU.

    Please don’t walk away…

  6. R I P Justice

    Uploaded by NosajVonSosaj on Jun 6, 2009

    A heavy music song about the injustice that has been inflicted on Schapelle Corby from both the Indonesian government and Australian Governments and their media outlets. As well as being screwed over and used by various people. The song R.I.P. Justice has been written,composed,recorded and performed by myself.

    Lyrics:
    Verse 1. An innocent Victim. Locked away.
    For a crime. she didn’t commit.
    Investigation. Only half complete.
    Butcher the truth. destroy the proof.
    Lock her away. Nothing more to say.
    Never stood a chance against the Hanging Judge.

    Chorus:
    Evidence is not evidence.
    Don’t bother me with evidence.
    What happened in Australia is not evidence.
    Here to Convict
    Only here to convict.
    500 Convictions.
    No Aquitals
    No CCTV
    No DNA test.
    No Justice.

    Verse 2. Let her rot. Let her waste away.
    That is what the people say.
    Evidence to clear. Access Denied.
    Freedom and basic rights.
    All but stripped away.
    Must respect the courts decision.
    Despite the courts lack of vision.

    Repeat Chorus.

    Guitar Solo.

    Verse 3. You make a fortune from her plight.
    How can you say that this is right?
    Lock her away nothing more to say.
    Butcher the truth and destroy the proof.
    Life and Death is just a game.
    And you my friend have got no shame.

    Chorus.

  7. There is so much support for Schappel Corby. I wonder why people are so silent when it comes to the many other Australians railroaded abroad by corrupt officials who can presume the assistance of the Australian government no matter how spurious and irregular the cases they seek to prosecute?

    I will soon return voluntarily to Bali to face fabricated and vague criminal charges being prosecuted on the strength of bribes paid for by an Australian business adversary. He has admitted in writing to paying some $70,000 to various people including several people introduced to him as Jakarta police in return for their help to resolve his problems with me. Several of these people have given sworn affidavits that they were hired by this Australian to arrange my imprisonment by any available means and told by him to use the money to pay any Indonesian law enforcement officials willing to help. This was just the tip of the iceberg but bizarrely, it doesn’t seem to matter.

    In Australia it is a serious criminal offence for any Australian to bribe a foreign public official to obtain an illegitimate business advantage. But in this instance, why am I surprised that after two years of official indifference by the AFP, they have ruled out an investigation because, they assert, the “alleged” bribes paid by this man were not paid to obtain an illegitimate business advantage! Apparently bribing officials to corruptly imprison a business rival involves something other than an “illegitimate business advantage” and in the view of the AFP, that makes it okay.

    There is no evidence against me to support these fabricated charges. The allegations even if believed do not disclose a criminal offence. The prosecutor assigned to the case for two years repeatedly refused to prosecute the case having formally determined that there was no evidence and the allegations at best were a civil matter. For that he was threatened by his superior and transferred to another jurisdiction after the case against me was suddenly certified as ready for trial without his knowledge or consent. In the other jurisdiction, he was prosecuted for refusing to prosecute me and in due course fully vindicated but the case against me continues.

    What am I charged with? I am charged with fraud for allegedly failing to complete an order for goods after allegedly being paid $236,000. The problem is, I was never paid $236,000 by this man and never even discussed an order with him. I was paid a much, much lesser amount in connection with an agreement made by him to buy shares in my Indonesian company. Those payments were acknowledged by me and documented as having been paid for shares. He never disputed this until after making his fabricated police complaint with the help of local underworld case brokers some 10 months later. He has never disclosed to me or to police what goods he claims to have ordered at what price and in what quantities. He has never explained when and where this order was allegedly agreed. He has provided no evidence of any order related payments. He has not produced a contract, purchase order, email, letter of demand, proof of payment or any other document that even refers to any order. Conveniently, he claims it was all based on trust.

    While he actively pushes for my criminal prosecution in Bali, in related proceedings brought by me against him in the Supreme Court of NSW, he has for 7 months refused to file a defence and has formally disputed ever making his police complaint and allegation against me in Bali. In NSW, he disputes the authenticity of the very police documents signed by him in Bali which are the sole basis of my continuing criminal prosecution there. He is actively advancing my criminal prosecution in Indonesia on the sole strength of his improbable story and bribes, while in Australian proceedings he disputes having made his allegations against me in Bali. That is pure Kafka. And guess what? The Australian government, including the AFP, do not consider that they have any role whatsoever to play in this matter, except perhaps to assist the Indonesian government in my prosecution.

    Very soon I will be in Kerobokan prison with Schappele but as my “show trial” unfolds I doubt that it will raise a peep in the Australian press.
