Schapelle Corby


i was watching a documentary on HBO this morning about a woman from Australia who was apparently caught smuggling a huge 10 pound bag of weed into Indonesia inside a boogie-board bag. trust me when you see the pictures of it, you cant help but notice that you have that much pot just magically appear in you bag after getting it from baggage claim. anywho, in Indonesia the crime is death by firing squad. she got off with 20 years. its amazing to see the flaws in justice systems across the world. makes you happy to be an american citizen in trouble with the law on our own grounds. there are tons of sites showcasing the court and what “happened”. i perfer that you look in up your self and decide. but if your lazy you can look here. you can draw your own opinions but remember, if she is telling the truth, this same type of thing could very well happen to you. man, death by firing squad for weed.

by the way, the HBO documentary is called Ganja Queen

Malcom McCauley is a pathetic human being who tried of profit off of the horrible situtation Schapelle is in. He's been completely discredited.McCauley's Corby claim 'laughable'KATE KYRIACOU, NIGEL HUNT20 July 2008Sunday Mail (Adelaide)Copyright 2008 News Ltd. All Rights ReservedDETECTIVES have laughed off claims by convicted drug trafficker Malcolm McCauley that he supplied the drugs found in Schapelle Corby's boogie board bag.And it has also emerged McCauley submitted paperwork to his local RSL Club stating he was a member of a World War II army battalion which disbanded one year after he was born.The northern suburbs drug runner last week claimed he had sold the drugs discovered in Corby's bag to her father, Mick.McCauley first hit the spotlight in 2005 when police discovered photographs of him visiting Corby in Bali's Kerobokan Prison.At the time he said he had no connection with the Corby family and had visited Corby out of curiosity while holidaying in Bali.Police involved in an operation that resulted in McCauley's arrest on drugs charges in Adelaide in 2005 have dismissed his claim he sold cannabis to Mick Corby.When Adelaide detectives discovered the photographs of McCauley with Schapelle Corby, he was questioned about the images."He claimed he had no knowledge of the Corby situation at all,'' one officer, who declined to be identified, said."What he is saying now is quite laughable.''The officer said the photographs sparked an extensive investigation to determine if there were any links between McCauley's smuggling syndicate and the Corby family."We have found no links, nothing at all, no evidence linking the two situations,'' the officer said."If he had any further information, it would have been advantageous for him to have told us at the time."There is every likelihood he could have used that as a bargaining chip and that would have been taken into account when he was sentenced. That did not take place and he did not even hint at any connection with the Corby clan.''This week, a long-term member of the Salisbury RSL, where McCauley used to be a member, told the Sunday Mail he spoke to the drug trafficker after he met Corby."I remember him going over to Bali for a holiday and when he came back he had a bunch of photos that he was showing everyone,'' the member said."He told us he'd met the mother (of Schapelle Corby) the night before and went to see Schapelle the next day."As far as we all knew, that was the first time he'd met anyone in the Corby family."We just reckon it (the latest claim) is all bulls - - -''The Sunday Mail understands McCauley's application form to become a member of the Salisbury RSL club stated he had been part of Australia's 2/27th battalion.The Australian War Memorial said the battalion operated between 1940 and 1946 in New Guinea and the Middle East. It was disbanded on March 18, 1946.McCauley was born in 1945, according to his RSL application form.RSL state executive director Guy Harley said: "His paperwork states that he was a service member - or he certainly claimed to be a serviceman."I can confirm that he was a member but no longer is.''McCauley, who was released from a Queensland jail in May, this week insisted he was part of the battalion."Was I a war veteran? Never,'' he said."I was a signal sergeant with the 2/27th battalion."Did I go overseas? No.''A spokeswoman from War Memorial Australia said no Malcolm McCauley was listed as serving with the 2/27th battalion.McCauley said he had made the claims about selling drugs to Mick Corby because ``he wanted the truth out there'' and vehemently denied he had been paid to speak or have his photograph taken.

I've been following Schapelle's case for years. Here are the main problems with her case:1) She requested to have the drugs both DNA tested and the bag fingerprinted. This request was denied by the Bali police? Why? Guilty people don't generally beg to have the evidence further examined.2)The Queensland police cleared every member of her family of any involvement with drug traffiking.3)The weight of her baggage in Bali was never compared to the weight while checked in Brisbane.4) The only witness against her who testified that she claimed the drugs were hers, does not speak ANY English. 5) The CCTV footage of her bags in Brisbane mysteriously "disappeared. "6) The Indonesian judge bragged before his trial that he had NEVER found anyone innocent.7) Her boogie board bag was unlocked and out of her possession for 12 hours.8) If she was a trafficker, why was there NO investigation as to how she obtained the drugs and NO investigation as to how she planned on distributing the drugs?9) How does a pillow-case size bag of drugs get through security in Brisbane, Sydney Domestic, and Sydney International airports? Did I mention that the drugs were sitting on top of her boogie board in clear view in clear plastic? AND the bag had been slashed so it must have stunk to high heaven.What you may think of her guilt or innocence is up to you, but the FACT is that she didn't get a fair trial even under Indonesian standards. Personally, I think that 20 years for not locking your bag is a bit harsh.

Check your facts before you link to another site. Aussie weed sells for a premium in bali due to quality. Also, tourist only purchase from other tourist likes, not locals because locals extort you or sell you out to the police. As you now know, denpasar dosent take any crime lightly that involves drugs.
