Schapelle Corby

In tonight's program we continue our investigation of the Schapelle Corby case, which we began in an earlier podcast.

I have as my guest Schapelle's uncle, Shun Hatton, who joins us from Darwin.

Tonight we examine in depth evidence which suggests that mainstream media organisations engaged in a deliberate campaign to discredit Schapelle and her family, and we present the startling revelation that this campaign of vilification was orchestrated at the highest levels of government, with active collusion from Australia's public broadcaster the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

In particular we focus on the allegations made by investigative reporter John Stewart, in a Lateline program aired on 4 July 2008, which asserts that Schapelle's father was involved in the drug trade. When originally broadcast these assertions were offered as "facts".

The ABC later acknowledged that they "should have made it clear that these were allegations, not facts", however this retraction did little to reverse the massive effect on public opinion caused by the original program.

Today marks the fifth anniversary of Schapelle's incarceration in Bali. Her health is deteriorating rapidly. Clearly there is more than enough "reasonable doubt" in this case to warrant major diplomatic efforts to have Schapelle returned to Australia. Instead we have seen a carefully crafted campaign to turn public opinion against her - and the only plausible reason for this is political expediency.

We all suffer as a result of this assault on our democracy and human rights.

The media burying of Schapelle Corby has been the most obscene episode in the shameful history of Australian broadcasting and publishing. The media have been a tool of political corruption and complicity, and a young woman is slowly being tortured to death as result. <br><br>Public opinion has been subdued and managed at will, with every smear, every lie and every hidden truth being a nail in an innocent’s coffin.<br><br>I hold my hand up to Truth News for having the courage and integrity to scratch the surface of this, and to begin to expose a scandal that makes all decent people shudder. <br><br>Thank you for standing up to be counted, and for confronting those with zero regard for human rights and human life.

Whether or not she is actually guilty means nothing.  As previously said, there is enough doubt.  Heaven and earth was moved to return a “convicted terrorist” to Australia and free him, but nothing has been done to return a “convicted drug runner”. <br><br>Both were convicted in “kangaroo courts”, and neither conviction could have occurred if they had been tried in Australian courts.<br><br>So why did David Hicks matter while Schapelle Corby did not?

By Christine Kent on 2009 10 09 - 12:15:02

Great show. It’s very sad to hear her speak. Its clear she was innocent. And from a legal standpoint beyond reasonable doubt that she was guilty.

I have struggled to comprehend why the Australian media took it on themselves to so blatantly go out of their way to destroy any chance Schapelle Corby had of defending herself prier to her guilty verdict and afterwards prier to her appeals. I have read the many comment’s that should not have been expressed by representatives of the Australian Government the Australian Federal Police, her QC and subsequently her x lawyer Robin Tampoe. If this case had been held in Australia many would have been charged with professional misconduct I am sure of this amid Tampoe being the first to be struck off.<br><br>In all my years of being involved with the media, I have never before witnessed such obscene and gutter journalism. With the continuous airing of negative press via TV and print media over the past five years I have watched the media damage this young woman’s life “forever” and this will go way past her 20 year guilty conviction, not to say what they have done to her family’s character.<br><br>Is it not so blatantly obvious that Schapelle Corby’s fundamental human right’s have been exploited? Schapelle Corby is an Australian and is seen by many as a political prisoner a prisoner locked away in a filthy 3rd world prison out of sight of the Australian Governments eyes being used by some in the Indonesian prison system as a tourist attraction which to generate extra rupiah.. <br><br>It is known fact tourists can pay anything up to $100 AU 852,234 Indonesian Rupiah to view Schapelle in the Kerobokan prison court yard and you don’t have to be a member of her family or a friend to do so, you just have to cough up the bucks and you’re in. Schapelle Corby is nothing more than a caged human locked away for profiters. <br><br>What evidence did the Indonesian’s have? a boggy board 4.2 kg of marijuana which Schapelle categorically states even though being diagnosed as insane, the marijuana found in her bag did not belonging to her, it was placed in her bag by someone els.<br><br>This young women continues to protest her innocence yet NOT one Indonesian or Australian investigative journalist/lawyer will taken up the fight to help free her, so you have to ask why and what are they all afraid of? <br><br>“Is this your bag Miss Corby?” Schapelle YES but that’s not mine pointing to the plastic bag “thank you, we don’t care you said the bag belongs to you, that is all we need to know go straight to jail for 20 years young lady!!!”<br><br>This case is irrefutably bloody scandalous and there are many in the media and Government who are responsible for this women’s present position.

Hereward, You should have a donation payment set-up on your site for this. We can get people can fight this injustice through raising funds. something like a grath to show how much is raised to fight these bastards

Schapelle Corbys arrest was beneficial for the AFP for a number of reasons. <br><br>Firstly it was a media feeding frenzy to divert attention away from Gary Lee Rogers AFP Internal Investigator who had uncovered an organised Federal Police Marijuana Smuggling ring, and for his trouble wound up dead…. JUST BEFORE Corby was arrested.  The best way to stop pesky media types asking questions is to have a breaking big story… ENTER Schapelle and her boogie bag.  <br><br>http://southeastasianews.org/corby_special.html<br><br>Curious that the security cameras didn’t work at Sydney Airport…. Nor at Brisbane Airport Nor at Bali Airport.  What are the chances of that?<br><br>Secondly…. Have a guess who took credit for the BIG CORBY BUST in Indonesia?  None other than former AFP trained Indonesian Police Chief who had recently been promoted to Head of Narcotics… Curiously.. the same guy who invited the AFP to BALI to investigate the Sari club bombings… I Made Pastika.<br>http://southeastasianews.org/un_at_bali.html<br><br>Schappelle Corby was Mick Keeltys way of thanking Pastika for a job well done in Bali 2002.<br><br>What a tangled web they weave. Using an innocent person to feather their political careers of these criminals.

From the entry 'An in-depth chat with Governor Jesse Ventura'.

I find it hard to believe some still take these wiki articles seriously, most of it is opinion posted as fact, snopes.com uses the BBC as its source, for those of us who are media savvy we know not to trust these sources without first doing some homework, hence why people listen to this program. Wouldn’t it be better to know Kevin Annett exists, rubbish or not rather than not knowing this is going on at all, most of the listeners to this show can discern information and make their own informed decision, i think it is better to be presented with the information rather than casting it out as rubbish based on a few baseless articles.

ITCCS is very active publicly and many people involved in it have come now come forward, Joshua Lemmens and his group in western Canada, the Belgium network around Toos Niejenhuis, the Italian network around Francesco Zanardi. All of their interviews are posted at http://www.itccs.org peopl,e just need to do a bit of looking. The ITCCS isnt just Kevin Annett given groups like ITCCS Coventry are publishing their own newspaper now and organizing courts through the midlands of the UK.
No-one can really know who is who in a world full of deception however we should try to either support, or, if not at-least investigate thoroughly before rubbishing those who are trying to create real change

International Common Law Court of Justice? Oh please. That site is merely a blog of one mans ramblings.

Dear Hereward
Some very good “logical” facts dug up!
You mentioned Bali Bombings in your podcast - Pls have a look back at that “war on terror’ bolstering example and particularly Keelty and the AFP’s role!

From the entry 'Schapelle Corby is a political prisoner'.

This is not on any particular issue posted here but for those interested in global geopolitics go to http://tarpley.net/ Webster Tarpley is an historian and economist. He has a weekly radio show called world crisis radio. He has written a number of books and travels both nationally and internationally to give talks and has also debated his opponents on issues like 911 and gives an analysis on ww1 and ww2 ,how they were brought about.Another great author in my opinion is Ellen Brown who wrote Web of Debt http://www.webofdebt.com/ and The Public Bank Solution both books a must read for anyone wondering how our money works and the solution.

Josh Anonymous,
The last couple of months seem to have proven my point that this site is a waste of electrons. Your claim that anonymity doesn’t matter seems to be dispututed by Hereward Fenton in his reaction the “Anonymous” group and he then goes on to name a Josh Jackson, which I suspect we can surmise is you. If you are not concerned with names, do you require names and qualifications of those who are presented as “experts” on subjects with which you disagree?
I wonder if you have been able to do any research and discover that the moisture you claim is carried aloft by aircraft in their fuel is actualy there in the atmospherewhen the aircraft passes by? No, well I suggets you could put on your thinking cap and ponder.

From the entry 'Chemtrails Revisited'.

Leonard Clampett,

Non-existence cannot be proven. Known fact.
http://www.logicallyfallacious.com/index.php/logical-fallacies/146-proving-non-existence

Fortunately, science does explain persistant contrails, so there is no need for an alternative (and much less plausible) explanation.

Regarding the video you linked, please pick one topic that you think should be discussed first. Give the time into the video for a reference.

Allow me to treat claims by Dane Wigington with the utmost skepticism. Recently he tried to measure sunlight UV values and failed badly - like on many issues before:
http://metabunk.org/threads/debunked-dane-wigingtons-claims-that-uv-is-off-the-charts.2097/

Wrong interpretation/calculation of measurements - again:
http://metabunk.org/threads/debunked-dane-wigingtons-claims-that-uv-is-off-the-charts.2097/#post-59145

BTW, why are you so obsessed with names? I could not care less about your identity. It has no relevance - either a claim is correct or it is not, no matter who made it.

From the entry 'Contrails dissipate quickly whereas chemtrails linger?'.

Josh Anonymous,

Rather than hiding behind anonymity, please advise who you are, what your experience is and what factual evidence you have to rebut the speaker in this video referred to below. As a denier you are claiming something does not exist, so it is up to you to prove your claim. As chemtrails exist, and can be seen by competent observers, I believe you have set yourself an impossible task. However, try to get on with it and prove your case.
