Schapelle Corby to apply for parole
Sun, 19 Aug 2012 8:33a.m.
The lawyer for convicted Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby is confident she could be out on parole in a matter of weeks.
The Indonesian Government has confirmed a six-month reduction to Corby’s sentence, which allows her to apply for parole immediately.
The reduction to her sentence was given for good behaviour as part of Indonesia’s Independence Day celebrations.
Corby was arrested in 2005 for attempting to import more than four kilograms of Marijuana to Bali.
She was initially sentenced to 20 years in jail but has had a number of reductions. Earlier this year she was granted a five year cut from her sentence by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
Lawyer Iskandar Nawing hopes she will be out by September this year.

You really haven't got a clue, so why do you make it up? This isn't going to happen soon.
Also, why do you publish comments by ignorant spiteful callous people? I am getting a bit sick of them bleating "guilty" when they simply haven't got a clue.
Finally, why are you hiding the information on Expendable.tv, which proves she is innocent?

The sad thing is that when this drug smuggler is released she will earn millions from magazine, tv and book deals. What a sorry message to kids - break the law and make your fortune.
