Kerobokan Prison
Floods are a common occurence inside Bali's Kerobokan Prison

Today in the second hour we welcome investigative journalist Gerry Georgatos, who will be discussing the Schapelle Corby case in depth and why he believes she is totally innocent of importing 4.2 Kg of marijuana into Bali in 2004.

Schapelle is due to be released on parole shortly and we have once again seen the media engage in baseless attacks on her character, the most outrageous of which was the suggestion on prime time TV, by a woman claiming to be her former lawyer, that Schapelle would be celebrating her release with a huge marijuana joint. In another bizarre smear a major media site published an article suggesting that Shapelle's supporters have exaggerated the pain and suffering caused by her incarceration. An article published on Yahoo 7 (now scrubbed), suggested that life inside Bali's Kerobokan prison was almost idyllic, with prisoners receiving art, reflexology, sewing, knitting and cooking classes. A reference to the deleted article can be found here. The reality, as documented by former inmate Rachel Dougall, is that life inside Kerobokan prison is very harsh indeed, with rampant drug abuse, the constant risk of violence and extremely poor living conditions.

Gerry Georgatos is an independent journalist who writes for The Stringer, and has previously appeared on the ABC 7:30 report exposing the mistreatment of minors held in detention over people smuggling charges.

In today's discussion Gerry makes the startling claim that officials in both the Australian and Indonesian governments have admitted to him privately that they know Schapelle is innocent.

By the time you read this article Schapelle will hopefully be free on parole, however the quest for truth, justice and restitution will have barely begun.

In our interview today Gerry explains that it is vital the Australian people are properly informed about the substantive issues in this case and the wealth of evidence held by the government that goes against the popular belief that Schapelle is guilty as charged.

As for the mainstream media and their decade long barrage of character defamation against the Corby family, this is a matter for all Australians to consider very deeply and to take action on. The media needs to be reformed and there needs to be justice meted out to those who have manufactured lies to protect corrupt government institutions.

The Schapelle Corby campaign will most certainly not end with her release from prison!

I was once an keen follower of Truth News, and was in the process of arranging to make regular financial contributions…but the show appears to be no longer consistent, nor able, for some reason, to keep up with events and current affairs. Once you could set your clock to the weekly program,  but now you can’t. Its been almost six weeks since the last broadcast, important events are happening in the world every day which are ignored. If the show was more consistent and we weren’t bombarded with U.S. advertisements (that have no relevance to Australians and are clearly there as punishment for those who have not financially contributed) I’m sure the show’s popularity would increase. But if it continues on its present trajectory, I fear it is doomed.  Such a pity.

I ahve seen the film “The Greatest Story Never Told” ‘bout Adolf Hitler and it’s stunning. We should probably wave a flag because it might change your perception of WWII.

Hello Hereward,
I have listened to this interview on many occasions and always become extremely irritable at the derogatory comments made by the ABC ‘re’ Andrew Wakefield.
I thus refer you and your listeners to a fabulous interview with Dr Wakefield, where he dismantles all the baseless allegations against him.  Sadly, it will never find the light of day on commercial media outlets.  Please share it as widely as possible with friends, family & associates. Just paste the following into your search engine:

Cheers,
Lou

Re first hour that I have just enjoyed listening to.  Hereward Fenton’s wrap-up of diverse reported facts on the recent spate of unexplained airline disasters is a gripping tale. His integration of these facts into speculation about repercussions leading to a push for new pilotless technology (elimination of ‘human error’) is interesting IMO, but where will it all lead?  Such questions are valid reflection, not ‘conspiracy theory’.  Mainstream media don’t want ordinary people to reflect too deeply and so try to nip this in the bud through their mantra of “conspiracy theory”.  My subscription to TNRA is well worth it, because I am receiving a good “reflection service” by a commentator who is able to think the unthinkable unlike most people pacified by escapist free to air TV.  And the most unthinkable event in our lives to date is that 9-11 was an orchestrated event engineered by secret and unaccountable government agencies for obvious political and military purposes. Like, fascism.  Mainstream media won’t even entertain that thought!  But, to quote Aristotle, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”.  And another quote from Aristotle for you Hereward.  It is about the human capacity for reflection, that you possess in abundance.  I remember learning of Aristotle’s idea that the most noble thing a man (as in hu-man) could do, was to reflect.  I think it comes from this of his quotes “The ultimate value of life depends on awareness and the power of contemplation rather than mere survival”.  I get paid for provision of ‘engineering services’ but this robs me of time for researching and reflecting on news stories like the ones on which you comment here. So I am very happy to subscribe. You are providing ‘reflection services’ and that is a noble profession in which you excel. thanks for the show!
