Thread Name: BS: Schapelle Corby
Subject: RE: BS: Schapelle Corby
The conviction was a foregone conclusion. To those few who have decided she is guilty please try and apply logic rather than prejudice.
Logic says that no sane person attempts to smuggle 4Kg of cannabis in a barely concealed see through bag, to Indonesia when there is no possibility of commercial gain. The fact that law enforcement officers lie and collude to bolster their case should be familiar to anyone who has had involvement with the law. Many innocent persons have spent decades in prison and been exonerated when police corruption was proven.
The fairness and impartiality of the Indonesian justice system is certainly questionable. Even when the alleged heroin supplier to the Bali 9 was killed by police in Jakarta, the important evidence siezed was handled by dozens of ungloved hands and hopelessly contaminated.
There are many other foreigners (less photogenic) who have jailed in Bali by dodgy evidence..and yes I am concerned for them also. The Schapelle corby case is so clearly unjust that many people have finally said...enough is enough. We will not just give up on this one.
