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?

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.

Tom Jones: Thank you for taking the time to read my post. You are correct when you say that the term ‘anti-semite’ is the wrong way to address the issue of Jew hatred. The semites comprise of four ethnic groups, including Jews, Arabs, Phoenicians and Armenians, yet somehow it’s been branded as Jewish. It’s a little bit like the word gay, meaning happy. It means happy but because it has been popularised as relating to homosexual people, now people think that before it’s intended meaning. Semite evokes thoughts of Jews, regardless of its history.

Wikipedia defines thought crimes as “....an occurrence or instance of controversial or socially unacceptable thoughts.” It would be punishable in the movie 1984, but I think we’d be hard pressed to see it happening in a free nation like Australia. On the other hand, I don’t think you can fairly say that words and speech are harmless. After all, Hitler forged the third reich with words. Words put millions of people in gas chambers and caused a war affecting the entire world. Had he been thrown (and kept) in jail, it is doubtful such a catastrophe would have happened. This flip flop wearing camera wielding big mouth obviously doesn’t have the political cunning of Adolf, but it was clear in his films that he intended to collect followers to harm Jews in unknown ways. But he did mention his will to throw them in work camps - sensitive huh? Brendan was intending to use words to villify and harm a particular group of people, that happened to be Jews and that is why he was jailed.

So no, I don’t think three years of maximum security confinement is a suitable prison term for him, unless it cured him of his prejudices and will to be a public menace.

antisemite: of all the Jews I’ve met, it seems they are more ‘anti-stupid’ than anything else. But nobody said you have to like them, just that in Australia the rule is live and let live, so follow the law at least.

Hi great show.. do you really believe these ISIS stories?
To me, it clearly seems like more theatre to take their austerity measures to the next level. For example the airport games they are playing.. I my self to not believe any of it..  I believe it is as big a con that we have ever seen..
It may be the pretext to WW3 that they have been waiting for. I really hope I am wrong, but from history I can assure you I am most likely right and it scares me.. It especially scares me when I see very good alternative media still half buying this ISIS story. They failed at removing Assad the first time. This is take 2. They need him gone to keep pushing. I would go as far as saying these recent beheadings of white men in orange robes “ARE FAKE”

Any thoughts?

This was not an attack, just an observation, open for conversation smile

I am slightly shkeocd... by the comments made.  I think the war could have been managed better, greater parts of Hamas destroyed. But what people are saying, flatten Gaza, turn it into a parking lot, what about one and half million people living there? Should they all be killed?! Is this what you all are implying?  I hope not!Israel is being condemned.  I agree we would be condemned no matter what we do.  But that does not mean that we should feel free to do contemptible actions.  We should continue to act with a high moral standard.  We should judge ourselves, be able to look ourselves in the mirror and not be ashamed. No other country has ever done so much to prevent civilian casualties, as Israel did in this war.  Let the antisemites rave.  We are better and we will survive.
