The political sacrifice of Schapelle Corby
WARNING: this podcast will make you angry.
If you take the information seriously and research the links we provide, you will soon realise that the people who govern you have no decency or integrity. If you have a conscience at all this will force you to take a stand. You will not be able to sit on the sidelines any more.
You will be radicalised.
The substantive facts in the story of Schapelle Corby are not well understood, largely because the media has done such a good job of muddying the waters and putting doubt into the minds of the public. We wish to set the record straight, and we wish to inspire the people of Australia to demand accountability from their elected representatives in government. We wish to hold the media to account, and we want the purveyors of baseless smears and hit pieces to be brought to some kind of justice.
In our system of laws a person is innocent until proven guilty. A person does not have to prove innocence, the prosecution must prove guilt. Like it or not, that is the underlying principle of the laws which govern our land, and that is what differentiates a country like Australia from despotic regimes around the world where people can simply disappear if they offend the tyrants who rule over them. It is central to democracy.
We are not claiming absolute proof that Schapelle is innocent. We are claiming an astonishing lack of proof that she is guilty. In addition to that, we have overwhelming evidence that the government colluded in covering up information which may have fully exonerated Schapelle and forced the Indonesians to release her.

Today's show consists of 2 interviews. The first, conducted on Sydney's Radio Skid Row 88.9 FM, is an interview with one of the creators of the Expendable Project website, who details for us the bombshell evidence that senior members of the Howard government conspired to misinfom the Australian public, Indonesian prosecutors and defence counsel about crucial evidence that Schapelle's bag had been tampered with during her transit from Brisbane to Bali.
In the second interview we talk to Schapelle's uncle Shun Hatton, who knows Schapelle well, and who had been planning to meet her in Bali for the family reunion which ended in disaster in October 2004.
To those who think they know Schapelle is guilty, I wish to remind you that every assertion that has been made linking Schapelle to the drug trade has been debunked. Every single one. There is simply no extant evidence that links Schapelle or her family to the drug trade. Her sister Mercedes continues to live in Bali. She has never been a suspect in any criminal investigation and she won a defamation case against Channel 7 over a series of Today Tonight episodes in which Schapelle's former friend, Jodie Powers, made allegations about the family's drug dealing history. It later emerged that Jodie Powers was paid $100,000 by Seven network for airing these baseless allegations on national TV.
We have previously debunked other rumours about the Corby family which were circulated by mainstream press. For more information on the smear campaigns against Schapelle please check our previous episodes on the subject, and the Schapelle Corby Media Project.
On a final note, if there are visitors to this page who wish to share new information pertaining to this case, we urge you to contact us. Our mission is to find out the truth, rather than to protect or defend any point of view. We will absorb and reflect upon on any new information, regardless of its implications for the guilt or innocence of Schapelle.
