Schapelle Corby - A Formal Professional Standards Complaint to the AFP, Re Key Investigative Failures

Dear Tony and Mark,

This is a formal professional standards complaint, please treat it as such - and it will also be faxed (I'll telephone Monday 17 Jan 2011 to confirm receipt).

Please (also), note this correspondence/formal complaint is referenced/linked within this on-line file, at point 12, for future legal needs, plus it's a resource for current/future film makers, authors and journalists.

I note these key questions (3rd December 2010), to you about this matter remain ignored and unacknowledged.

I wish to formally complain that the Australian Federal Police failed to search Schapelle's home premises (either her Father's, or Mother's, home), failed to investigate her phone and banking records, and failed to interview any of her family, friends or associates. Obviously, these basic police investigations were integral to investigating the Australian crimes that had, most obviously, occurred, e.g. the cultivation and supply of just over 4 kilos of marijuana.

And considering the price differential (point 1), plus the history-making significance of Schapelle's alleged offence (point 2), any reasonable person would expect the AFP to be very efficient and diligent, re investigating the background to this rather bizarre "Crime."

I look forward to your formal response.

Regards, Kim
