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.

Putin would have to be a complete moron to pull off MH17 after his very recent and successful BRICS attendance. Russia and a few other countries (China, Brazil, etc) are setting up their own development bank.

No doubt BRICS is pissing off the masters of international usury at the IMF and World Bank that will be left out in the dark. Maybe even enough to frame those that threaten their long standing economic strangle-control over the world?

Here, here Hereward!
Sad day for genuine Australian relations with Russia
Abbott and his deputy should be ashamed of their obvious haste to point the finger at Russian separatists, let alone Putin
Though there are more than ever before, an aware population of internet news grabbers, there are still far too many sheeple taking MSM as the truthful provider of news
Thank you for being one of the few radio presenters/journalists who tells us whats going on…..not what the manager/editor tells you to! I cannot believe the number of MS reporters that seem to break straight into a Russian beatup when interviewing anybody to do with MH17 disaster

Hey bubba luggs,

sit on it and spin.

Alex Jones had his day… He is OK to check out on every time something big happens to get a ‘conspiracy’ perspective, but 80% of his content is made up drivel. 15% is interesting and about 5% actually true.

No one in Australia is doing as gooder job as Heraward

NO ONE

Hey Bubba, you will never support anyone who is taking the time to dissect current issues because you are too distracted with quick overviews from other websites.  You only want to know the NEXT story, not what’s actually going on.  In regards to Herewards presentation of the show, what are YOU doing to challenge the mainstream distortion of events? Also, do you really enjoy listening to Alex Jones’ tired & irrelevant repetition’s of events in his life which waste half his air time?  Concentrate on the content and stop whining unless of course you think you can do a better job.  Hereward, you are doing an outstanding job (from a real Truth News subscriber).

Wow Bubba, you sure are insightful. I guess you must be a subscriber eh? Good on you mate.

I like the idea of Truth News and it is a great setup, but I can’t stand Hereward Fenton’s high pitched, annoying voice.  If you had a better speaker I would happily subscribe.  Also, a lot of your stuff seems a bit Johnny Come Lately as I find most of this on Drudge, Infowars and People’s Voice.  Hereward would make a great journalist writing articles and news stories, but don’t get him to talk on air.

Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

Good onya Hereward, excellent job pointing out the bleeding obvious brainwashing mind control techniques so clumsily employed by the ABC and rest of the corporate controlled propaganda outlets. It really is sickening and while I applaud your efforts to expose and deconstruct this muck I don’t envy you the task, though I concede it really does need to be done. Personally I don’t have the stomach for it anymore ... since I gave up the MSM back in 2004, my tolerance for it has dropped to ZERO. Love your show, kepp up the good work.
