Schapelle Corby - A VERY GRAPHIC STORY

Click on the picture to enlarge and read.

As I wrote in this post, I'm a great fan of a graphic style pioneered by Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop.

Over 200 slides (pages) on Schapelle's story are in development (maybe more), with the front cover above. I've decided to publish around 5% of what's coming - so here's a sneak peak at a page on the use of innocent Australian airline passengers as unwitting drug mules, by corrupt insiders.

Schapelle Corby - WHITEWASH !!!!!

Click on the picture to enlarge and read.

Dear Phillip,

I very much look forward to your reply to my questions of the 8th April 2011, in response to a bizarre letter from your organisation, which asserts that 200 kilos of cocaine made its way out of Sydney Airport (in 2004) without human intervention. So further, when you reply, could you also explain (in detail), why Mick Keelty, Ray Cooper and police prosecutor David Staehli, as quoted in the picture above, are all wrong?

I'm fond of pictures telling a story, and a huge fan of writing style pioneered by Anita Roddick (founder of The Body Shop). Pick up a copy of one of her books, flick through, and you'll see what I mean. The information is in your face, and completely accessible. In Full Voice, a short Body Shop publication, is a good example of this genre. I think Schapelle's story (and the corruption of the Australian establishment), would benefit from similar treatment.

Now, as for the recent FOI debacle and your organisation, I also look forward to a response to my much more detailed and specific request. And since posting that (as you know), a film maker has asked me to access what's already on offer, so I'm happy to oblige them. I'll pass the pile directly on to them, as quite honestly, a whole heap of office gossip, diary entries and emails about myself (the overwhelming bulk of your offering), isn't of particular interest to me. Why the hell do I need a "Labelled photo" of myself? Were you using it for dart practise? Try this one, and I think you'll find me somewhere in this crowd too.

You're up against the logic of the heart. Simply put, some people in this World actually give a shit, and don't take orders. And give thanks for that, because it's a universal energy that protects all of us. Do you think the organisation you work for wouldn't eat you for breakfast, if it was ever convenient and expedient to do that? Gary Lee Rogers found that out the hard way, as did Gerry Fletcher and Allan Kessing. The beast you're protecting has no loyalty to you.

Schapelle Corby - Is Robert Oakeshott Deaf?

Click on the picture to enlarge & read.

Dear Robert,

I wrote to you five weeks ago, re Qantas lies about Schapelle. You have completely ignored that correspondence, so this is a formal reminder. I will continue to call you, and write to you (at appropriate intervals), until you wake up to your responsibilities.

Can I remind you, Schapelle's issues are extremely high profile, most of the public believe she's innocent and want her home now, there's a book in production and a documentary - so your core failure on this urgent problem will not go unnoticed, and remains documented for posterity.

Regards, Kim

PS - This Women for Schapelle blog post is now to be found on the first page of Robert Oakeshott's main Google search results.

Schapelle Corby - Reaching 300,000 People a Day With Just 5 Comments

Click on the picture to enlarge & read.

Half of all Australians are on Facebook. So Just five strategically placed comments every day . . .
You know, Australia's one of the best places in the World to be, I did a bit of research, it's cheaper than Bali, cleaner and safer
. . . Can reach an awful lot of people.

Schapelle Corby - Let's All Be Friends Again . . .

Dear Kevin and Greg,

Have you forgotten something? Because millions of Australians haven't.

I sent you some very important questions re Indonesian justice and Schapelle over eight weeks ago, in February 2011, here and here. Four weeks later, in March 2010, I wrote again, because you'd completely ignored my correspondence. I also rang Greg's office around that time, to confirm my inquiries were received (they were), and added some further questions. However, yet another four weeks have elapsed since then, and you can't even be bothered to stick an envelope in the mail. So this is another formal reminder, and I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm sure President SBY understands the need for transparency on high profile international issues, and the clarification of misunderstandings between friends.

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - The Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity Hiding in Plain Sight . . .

. . . so they might as well come out from under their desk, because it's doing them no good, and only making them look nastier and more corrupt. Here's the correspondence I've just received, in response to my freedom of information application of 31 January 2011 (over eleven weeks ago) . . .


They want to censor the vast majority of the info, charge me nearly $200 for a pile of blacked out pages, and release (if you look at the list of documents), what amounts to a pile of emails, press clippings and file notes. Where the hell are all the in-depth police interviews and other investigations these bozoes should have done? I see I'll have to be a lot more specific. Here's my reply to ACLEI . . .

Dear Phillip,

As should be obvious to you, the whole point of an FOI application is to verify to the World at large that you actually carried out a legitimate investigation. I don't believe you did, and from the extremely poor quality of the response to my FOI application, I think that's becoming even clearer. So please treat this as an entirely new FOI application, one that gets to the heart of this debacle (and you can mothball the last one, scuppered by your incompetence).

I will set the scene, then provide you with a list of what's needed.

Setting the scene . . .
  • The improbability of Schapelle successfully smuggling 4.2 kilos of marijuana through three Australian airports without detection.
  • There was extensive evidence of criminal activity by corrupt insiders at Sydney Airport.
  • The Wheeler Report clearly says on page 111 that cannabis was smuggled between domestic airports.
  • Alan Kessing (a very senior customs officer at that time) has just publicly asserted that Schapelle was (without doubt), the victim of airport corruption.
So, in those circumstances, any police officer NOT carrying out the investigations I'm asking about below should be drummed out of the police in shame and disgrace. Is that clear enough for you?

The list of what's needed . . .

1. Specific information required. The Australian Federal Police failed to preserve a single frame of CCTV relating to Schapelle or her luggage (despite all the graphic reasons listed above re why this was imperative), from three Australian terminals. Please supply . . .

(a) AFP policy and procedure documents for preserving and securing CCTV footage from the scene of a crime.

(b) Your interview/s with the AFP officers responsible for this process on or around the 8th of October 2004.

(c) Any other documents (or material) specifically related to investigating this core failure.

I believe Australian Customs runs more than 1000 CCTV cameras at Australian airports, and I quote . . .

"These cameras are located within Customs-controlled areas within the terminal, in the basement baggage make-up areas, in the public areas of the terminal and includes coverage of the airside tarmac areas and the public car parks. The Customs CCTV network at the airport provides full surveillance coverage at all times. Areas under surveillance are generally covered by more than one camera."

So do you wish to formally inform the World that you're clueless as to why the Australian Federal Police failed to preserve a single frame of CCTV from 100's of cameras, relating to one of the most high profile cases in Australian history? I'll leave that up to you, and I look forward to receiving direct evidence of your investigations on this key point. And if millions and millions of dollars worth of CCTV can be rendered useless (and completely ineffective), by internal corruption within the Australian police, I think tax payers should damn well demand a refund.

2. Specific information required. The AFP failed to access the Mutual Assistance Treaty with Indonesia, in order to ensure the physical evidence was forensically examined (see point 10 of The Evidence File), and also lied about this crucial testing to the media. Please supply . . .

(a) AFP policy and procedure documents relating to making an application to the Attorney General, re accessing the mutual assistance treaty with Indonesia.

(b) Your interview with the officer/s responsible for this process.

(c) Your interview with the AFP officer/s who told the media (specifically the ABC), that Schapelle had "Refused" forensic testing of the physical evidence.

(d) Any and all information relating to your research and investigations on this specific point.

3. Specific information required. The AFP failed to investigate the Australian grower and supplier of the drugs found in Schapelle's bag (see point 12 of The Evidence File). Please supply . . .

(a) AFP policy and procedure documents relating to investigating the source of drugs grown, produced and supplied within Australia, then exported from this country. Please note, Queensland Police Minister Neil Roberts has formally denied (in a letter) that his officers were responsible for these investigations.

(b) Your interview with the officer/s responsible for this process.

(c) Any and all information relating to your research and investigations on this specific point.

4. Specific information required. In September 2010, I specifically asked you to interview Bruce Griffin and Ray Cooper . . .

"4. Bruce Griffin (paragraph 21), a former NSW drug squad detective, testified that some local drug traffickers (with the help of airport contacts), use the luggage of innocent passengers to move drug shipments between Australian cities - an accusation also echoed by Ray Cooper, former Chief of Internal Investigations for the Australian Federal Police. Please make sure you talk to both former officers, and retain transcripts of these interviews."

Please provide evidence you did that, especially in the light of these later comments by Ray Cooper to Channel 9 . . .

AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL POLICE OFFICER, PRESS CONFERENCE: This is a significant syndicate of major criminal proportion. And it has been smashed today, I mean smashed.

ROSS COULTHART: But not before 200 kilograms of cocaine worth $30 million was allegedly smuggled into Australia between June and December last year. Allegations, too, that it was corrupt Qantas baggage handlers who took bribes of at least $300,000 to sneak the drugs past Customs.

RAY COOPER: Well, they were key players. You couldn't move the commodity through the airport without their involvement. They were key. They were key players in the organised crime role.

This is especially important, because Ray Cooper's view of the Qantas baggage handlers dovetails with mine, and is at complete odds with yours. I also clearly mentioned this point (about speaking to Ray Cooper), to your officer Steven Hayward in September 2010 . . .

"Yesterday, Steven Hayward, the Executive Director of ACLEI rang me at home. He said my complaint was still under "Assessment" (after 16 weeks), with absolutely no time frame to begin an investigation, and zero further detail. He also asked me if I'd spoken to Ray Cooper, I said I hadn't, but I hoped he had. The silence was deafening."

When replying to this new FOI request (necessary because of the poor quality and irrelevance of most of the material you were proposing to charge me nearly $200 for), can you please print out points 1 to 4 listed above, and then respond to each (specifically), beneath. Further, if the requested documents do not exist (and please tell me in writing if that is the case), then that will speak volumes about your efficacy and integrity.

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby Would Have Got Less for a Terrorism & Murder - Some Questions For Kevin Rudd (scroll down)

Dear Kevin and Greg,

I look forward to an answer to my questions about convicted drug criminal/Bali Prison boss Mohammad Sudrajat in due course, but in the meantime, I do have some other inquiries about Indonesian justice you may be able to help me with, because I'm a bit confused.

Now, when the book is published, I'm sure this slide show of graphic statistics from The Crisis Group, re how Indonesia dishes out justice to murderers and terrorists will be included because it makes very interesting reading. I counted 138 convictions within the first six pages. There were 5 executions and 11 life sentences - but out of the remaining 122 violent criminals, the mean average sentence was a mere 8.59 years, which included only 5 sentences of 20 years. So I guess that means Schapelle's worse than 117 violent terrorists, including two men who beheaded three children on their way to school? Could you please clarify this sentencing logic for me please, as I'm not an expert. Your assistance would be very much appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I'll send a reminder in four weeks if I've heard nothing in the interim.

Very best wishes, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Bali Prison Chief Gets Just 4 Years For His Drug Crimes, WTF?!!!!!!

Dear Kevin and Greg,

This afternoon I rang Kevin's office, the Australian Consulate in Bali and the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, asking whether or not Mohammad Sudrajat is still in prison. In all cases, no-one was able to answer that question immediately, so I left my contact details for someone to return my call. I look forward to a response to that very simple question.

Or maybe Sudrajat's on holiday? Like hundreds of other corrupt Indonesian officials. Please look into this for me.

Meanwhile, as I'm no expert on Indonesian justice, can you please explain to the Australian people why a man (in a key position of trust), who was facing a minimum of 20 years for serious drug and ammunition charges, ended up with just four? Considering the savagery when dealing with Australian citizens.

I look forward to a formal response, and I'll send a reminder in four weeks if I hear nothing in the interim.

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Mike Gallacher, Your Personal Intervention is Required

(First page Google search results for Mike Gallacher here, which include a direct link to this blog post) - Addit July 2011, looks like Mike Gallacher's as bent as a nine bob note

Dear Mike,

Congratulations on your new appointment, and congratulations on your promised inquiry into the NSW Crime Commission . . . (full article here)
"Maybe Bradley, now 59, sees the writing on the wall; a new government is likely only weeks away. The opposition's police spokesman, Michael Gallacher, called for a royal commission in 2008. 'The culture of the crime commission has moved away from what we want,' he told Parliament. 'Far too often it is about sitting down with organised crime figures and negotiating an outcome with respect to the forfeiture or seizure of assets.'

Also in Parliament, Bradley's former colleague from the Commonwealth prosecutors' office, Greg Smith, the shadow attorney-general, agreed: 'The commissioner of the Crime Commission is a friend of mine and I mean no aspersion to him, but it is clear that something rotten has occurred in the Crime Commission for some time.' "
. . . because even up here in Queensland, I can smell the stench.

I also note that Mark Standen, former Assistant Commissioner to the NSW Crime Commission is currently on trial, after Phillip Bradley his boss failed to detect any problems. I'm also glad to hear that Phillip Bradley has recently pulled his horns in, re the silencing of democratic dissent.

Now, you need to ponder the issues I'm bringing to your attention very carefully, because they're extremely high profile and popular, the book and doco (out soon) will rip through the corrupt like a tsunami and Schapelle sells copy faster than hotcakes. Denial is no longer an option, and you will be prominently mentioned - honourably or dishonourably is entirely your choice.

As you know, Mark Standen was in charge of Operation Mocha, involving corrupt baggage handlers at Sydney Airport, when (p 42) Schapelle flew. This was also the day Standen failed to secure a single frame of CCTV in relation to their activities (neglecting police basics, while later indulging in the bizarre). These scroats imported over 200 kilos of cocaine in the bags of innocent passengers between June and December 2004. They were involved in this crime on the exact day Schapelle departed, and at the exact time. One of them, Mark Standen's informant buddy "Tom" had a huge criminal history (as did others), including the trafficking of marijuana. However, "Tom" escaped prosecution, and was later paid $800,000 by the NSW Crime Commission (and allowed to keep three quarters of a million dollars of his criminal earnings), after he threatened to blow the whistle on corrupt police.

So was Mark Standen the corrupt officer at the centre of this extraordinary generosity? Was "Tom" paid off to keep his mouth shut about Mark? And who leaked vital information about Operation Mocha to gangsters, because it was not Gerry Fletcher? Why has that never been investigated? I also note your 2008 comments about Mark Standen (from Stateline) . . .
MIKE GALLACHER, OPPOSITION POLICE SPOKESMAN: This position that Mark Standen held carried with it incredible access to information that, apart from the Commissioner himself - the Commissioner of the Crime Commission - virtually no one else would have access to. Informants - registered informants. The names, addresses, whereabouts of undercover police officers involved in covert operations; the details of covert operations not only in New South Wales in relation to organised crime, but indeed the tentacles spread to every state and even overseas. That's when it really dawned on me - the seriousness of what we were looking at.

QUENTIN DEMPSTER: Mike Gallacher, a former undercover and internal affairs police officer, is now Opposition Police Spokesman.

The Crime Commissioner Phillip Bradley in his press conference said - asserted - that this was a one-off incident. Do you accept that?

MIKE GALLACHER: Well, I think it's a fairly brave statement to make at such an early stage given the seriousness of what we're talking about. I mean, in the last 24 to 48 hours, since Mr Bradley made that statement, we've now had it revealed that Mr Standon has a relationship or has had a relationship with someone who now plays a very important role as a member of an assessment team looking at complaints about corruption at the ICAC. We've also been told that another member of staff down at the Crime Commission has since resigned upon being told about the allegations. So, from one person of interest, we know have three questions over personnel directly involved with the Crime Commissioner and also the ICAC.
And please note, the NSW Police Integrity Commission has just formally refused to investigate the potential links between corrupt baggage handlers and corrupt police, despite my complaint, and despite the horrific consequences of inaction. Further, I've just formally asked them to explain the basis of their refusal (because they don't appear overworked), and I'm still awaiting a reply from them on that.

Look forward to hearing from you Mike.

All the best, Kim

Schapelle Corby & King Canute

I hear the doco's in the can, the book's almost finished and over 81% of Australians want Schapelle home NOW. There's no turning back the tide of truth.

And as "Journalist" Tom Allard knows all too well, his deliberately beaten-up story (and yes Tom, we DO know the background to your dishonest, slimy fishing trip), went viral within the hour.

It's not up to me to let loose the dogs of truth, but believe me, once the gate's open, they'll take more than a few chunks of flesh from several deserving backsides.
