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 think my comment was a reasonable one. I have no idea what’s going on, but whatever it is, it is certainly not doing TNR’s reputation much good. 45 minutes of “news” in almost six weeks, with no explanation. This in no way to treat your listening audience (subscribers and others) or to build support and a good reputation.

“In today’s show we break down the core issues behind the conviction of David Hicks, and link the whole thing back to the grand deception of 9/11, without which, none of this would have occurred.”

and yet hereward continues to perpetuate the lies of 9/11 by claiming a 757 hit the pentagon with absolutely zero evidence to back it up and a plethora of evidence that shows his claims to be impossible.

spare us your condescending enlightenment and stop lying.

The comment by Eugene above is most unhelpful to say the least

, “you know Shawn, we might not be able to save your house, what do you think we should do?”...wouldn’t you find that a liltte bit strange? Assuming of course that you, like Mr. Silverstein, had absolutely no affiliation with or expertise in fighting fires? Or would you proceed to direct the fire chief, over then phone mind you, on whether to proceed with fighting it or pull the fire chiefs men out?  Larry Silverstein, Jewish landlord, financier, and part time psychic fireman safety coordinator for NYFD Secondarily, and less relevant, I have no demolition experience beyond home repair, but I do have a background in linguistics (thanks Noam!) and the only time an English speaking person refers to a human being or group of human beings as “it” tends to be right before they eat them. Perhaps Silverstein is a psychopath, I know liltte else about him so I can’t say, but but violent psychos refer to their victims as objects to dehumanize the experience of killing them. But I don;t think that’s what Larry meant. On that note, as I’ve said before, find me one other example of anyone on the scene on 9/11, or ANY TIME SINCE that has referred to a firefighter or group/contingent/unit of firefighters as “IT”. Not “them”, “they” “him”, “we”, “our”, “us”, but “it”. You can’t find one.  Because most people aren’t psychotic, amen for that.

Herewood,
If you want financial support on a regular basis, you need to regularly present news casts. There has been nothing for almost a month. I have been listening to TNR for its inception, and it has never been as scatty. In six weeks you have only presented an hour of reporting, 15 minutes of which is punctuated by useless advertisements which have little or no relevance to Australians. I hope you can lift your game or I fear this once brilliant show will be destined for the scrapheap.

Yes, fascinating.  However, I would be more inclined to resort to massive vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) used successfully by Dr Brighthope in cancer, both as a painkiller and healing.  He also used successfully vit C to heal AIDS. 

Well, when i still lived in formerCzechoslovakia (during the regime of the Communist party) we believed in the USA and capitalism.  There was a (Russian) joke about it: two comrades travel to the West and talk to each other, “Capitalism is decaying but the smell is wonderful”; and agreed that when they come back home they will talk cryptically about the situation in the west: when talking about good things they will say “like in a film” and when talking about bad things “like at home”.

Well, these days I must say that the situation in the West is “like at home” and the capitalism is decaying but the smell is not so wonderful.
