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.

Cris,

this pilot’s publications were discussed here before. See the first page of comments, below the question from Christine Haynes.

See also Qantas pilot Michael Glynn’s comments when the discussion about “bluenomore” continued on page 11 (close to the bottom),

“Yes, that’s water vapour from the jet fuel combustion, meeting ice-cold and humid outside air, freezing almost instantly and providing condensation surface for the humidity already present. The ice crystals are blown apart by strong winds and voilà: there is your contrail-induced cirrus cover.

Again - this has been observed and researched many times.”

wow. you can describe the weather conditions for 5 days in a row in my area without even knowing where i am. remarjable. another example of how you dont think before you write.

this is why i dont care for your imbecilic unqualified anonymous opinion.
what part of shut the fuck up do you have trouble understanding?

Gday Mr Clampett,
re wasting electrons..
the way j-anonymous and fenton the pretender ignore logic, reason and common sense is laughable.  I dont post here to try and convince these disingenuous idiots of anything, rather to simply highlight the obvious, so that anyone else who may stumble upon this cess pit of insipid unqualified opinion, hypocrisy, disinformation, censorship and lies, that this poor excuse for an alternative news website has zero credibility, and to proceed with caution.

If not for your expertise at playing “whack-a-troll” everytime j-anonymous pokes his ugly mug above the parapet, I doubt I would bother. Love your work.

Leonard Clampett,

why are you insisting on calling me ‘Anonymous’? Did you forget my name already?

What is your stance on supersaturation with respect to ice? Does it exists?

Does one tonne of jet fuel generate 1.3 tonnes of water during combustion?

Do you call these fantasies because you refused to accept the facts?

Andrew Adams,
You are wasting electrons on this site. It exists only so Hereward Fenton (if that is a real name) can air his bias and people like Josh Anonymous, who cannot be educated, can air their fantasies. Cheers

ANDREW ADAMS: Last warning. If you continue using foul and abusive language I will start deleting your posts and your IP address will be blocked. Your persistent rudeness and bullying has already destroyed your credibility - I wonder if you realise that?

“Andrew Adams,

what you describe is not implausible”

youre a freaking dickhead. what i describle is clear blue skies, turning into overcast skies, only because of what is coming out of planes, that spreads and grows.. 

youre not plausible. i know what im looking at and i dont need f’tards like you presuming to be able to tell me otherwise, what part of shut the fuck up do you have trouble understanding?
