Most would be aware of Schapelle Corby’s situation and with her “condition” deteriorating at the moment, I was curious as to what your thoughts were on the subject. I will try to post a poll with this post but as I have failed to do so previously there are no promises
Ive also included an article in regards to the topic underneath which I agree with.Schapelle's served her time
It’s time for Schapelle Corby to come home. And for someone who reckons she was guilty of smuggling 4.1 kilos of marijuana into Bali, that’s a giant step down.
My conclusion is based on several factors, but not her recent descent towards insanity.
That’s despite the report by Dr Jonathan Phillips, former president of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, who visited Corby in her Bali jail.
He assessed her as “hanging on by a thread”.
Given the conditions of Indonesian prisons, her mental state among inmates there wouldn’t be unique.
By Australian standards a five-year sentence for trafficking that amount of marijuana is at the high end of the scale.
Had it been the more lethal heroin and in the massive quantities found on the “Bali Nine,” her sentence would have been understandably even more severe.
Hard nosed Schapelle detractors - and I have been one - will reckon her latest escapades are predicated to extract maximum public and political sympathy.
Even if that’s the case, it’s difficult to argue against her repatriation to an Australian jail in the wake of Scotland’s recent release of the Lockerbie bomber who killed more than 250 innocent airline passengers.
Those who reckon she should rot in custody for the next 15 years should also reflect on how our own courts continue to free some of our worst thugs and paedophiles.
