Thread Name: BS: Schapelle Corby
Subject: RE: BS: Schapelle Corby
The Australian government takes the line that we must respect the decision of the Indonesian justice system, and that in the unlikely event of Schappelle being allowed to be transfered to an Australian prison then she would serve the full sentence that has been imposed.
A forensic examination of the bag of dope would have allowed Schappelle the chance to prove her innocence. This has not been allowed. There is no motive, there is no evidence to convict, except for the fact that the dope was in her bags on arrival. By any reasonable standard of fairness and justice this girl has not received a fair trial.
A person travelling on the passport of any country would expect that their government would take a much stronger line to protest the unfair treatment of its citizens.
If she was returned to serve her sentence in Australia you can expect a large crowd armed with sledgehammers to knock down the walls of the can count me in.
