Release From Bali Prison – Schapelle Corby
The happy 23-year-old Queenslander from Brisbane, Australia, Schapelle Corby was arrested at Denpasar Airport on her entry into Bali, back in 2005. The facts were shocking to all Australians: Schapelle was carrying 4.2kg of marijuana in her surfer boogie-board bag. Indisputable facts. She was convicted on 27 May 2005.
The Indonesians wanted to lock Schapelle up for a very long time. She was sentenced to 20 years in Kerobokan Prison. Yet, she protested her innocence. Did someone else plant the 4kg of marijuana in her bag, back at Brisbane Airport? The story hit all news headlines in Australia for years. Dramatic scenes followed, often involving Schapelle’s mother and her outspoken sister, Mercedes Corby. There was all sorts of speculation about the Corby family and their involvement.
Fast forward to 27 May 2017. Schapelle Corby is released from probation in Bali and deported. This marks her official release from Kerobokan Prison, that infamous hell-hole in Indonesia. Now even the steps of her release journey appear on Instagram.

Was Schapelle set up? Was she simply a drug mule for another dealer or smuggler? She says she is innocent of the charge of drug smuggling. Read her 2006 book. What do you think?
It’s a heck of a story. Schapelle suffered from depression and mental illness in that horrific jail known as Kerobokan Prison. Who was responsible? Did baggage handlers at Brisbane Airport in Australia do the horrible act and add that dope to her bodyboard bag?
