Subject: BS: Schapelle Corby
As you would all know, Schapell Corby is facing life imprisonment or death for allegedly importing cannabis into Bali.
Like most people that I know, I am totally convinced that she is innocent. It defies logic that anyone would attempt to carry an unconcealed package with several Kilos of strong smelling dope, through Brisbane airport which has many sniffer dogs about, to take it to a country in which the street value is about 1 twentieth of that in Brisbane and which is well known to have harsh penalties. Added to that is the fact that anyone watching the demeanor of this poor girl throughout this ordeal can clearly see that she is telling the truth.
It seems that anti Australian sentiment in Indonesia is a major factor in this persecution. Abu Bakar Bashir has only been sentenced to two years and six months jail for helping to murder 283 people in Bali.
Our gutless government will do nothing because little Johnny Howard must be seen to be "tough on drugs". Come on mudcatters surely between us we can do SOMETHING to get her out of there.
