Thread Name: BS: Schapelle Corby
Subject: RE: BS: Schapelle Corby
Back in December during the period in which Schapelle's appeal was being considered, the South Australian police released details of photographs of Schapelle in the company of an accused drug trafficker. It was implied that the photographs were taken before her fateful trip to Bali and this would have had a very bad impact on her chances of a succesful appeal. It was not until January 13th 2006 that it was revealed the photographs had an innocent explanation

By the this time the damage to her appeal had most likely already been done.
This strange saga is still unfolding and I think there will be some more   interesting developements in the weeks ahead.
I still believe that the accidental failure of an interstate smuggling operation is a likely explanation. However in the light of the latest information, and asking the question "who would be so stupid as to risk a death sentence for a dubious financial gain in attempting the smuggling operation?" I would have to say that it might be the kind of thing a 16 year old male might do.
I certainly did some dumb and dangerous things myself at that age!
