Schapelle Corby - Is Justice Finkelstein of Australia's Media Inquiry a Clown?


. . . deliberately appointed to bring down pre-determined findings? I very much hope not, although The Kangaroo Court of Australia sets out a very detailed case in support of that opinion. However, despite that, here is my formal submission to Justice Finkelstein. For the sake of Australia's international reputation, I hope it doesn't fall on deaf ears . . . and I also hope he accesses all the embedded links, as they are part of the evidence I'm providing . . .

Dear Justice Finkelstein (cc Guardian journalist Nick Davies),

I am sure you have heard of the Lindy Chamberlain case, and the bizarre fabrications printed by the Australian media to demonstrate her "Guilt." This was very recently discussed at length by The Guardian newspaper UK - also the employer of journalist Nick Davies, and I'm sure you are aware of his achievements, vis a vis media wrong-doing.

I am writing to you now because the Australian print media is now engaged in another vicious witch hunt, in regard to Australian Schapelle Corby. Lindy Chamberlain's ex-husband Michael Chamberlain recently said the lies were part of a campaign to protect the Northern Territory tourist industry, as baby-eating dingoes aren't good for business. In a similar vein, I guess drug smuggling Qantas baggage handlers aren't good for our national airline - and an innocent Australian incarcerated in an Indonesian hell-hole isn't good for massive Australian investments in that country.

Recently, there was wide spread reporting of claims that Schapelle's Father supplied the drugs found in her bag, in Bali. This reporting was patently absurd, for reasons not a single news outlet in Australia chose to disclose . . .

1. Australian Customs confirm there is NO commercial flow of marijuana FROM Australia, TO Bali, and there never has been.

2. Early press reports confirm there is NO commercial flow of marijuana FROM Australia, TO Bali, and there never has been.

3. Official data from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime exposes the gross lies of the principal informant, including the economic impossibility of smuggling marijuana FROM Australia, TO Bali.

4. Both the South Australian Police and the Queensland Police have formally denied the claims of the principal informant.

5. Schapelle's father had a clean background.

However, when I formally complained about this gross lack of balance to the Australian Press Council, my concerns were dismissed out of hand.

I am also concerned that the Australian print media is now consistently refusing to report major (and very serious), facets of Schapelle's case, as just detailed in my multiple Freedom of Information applications (scroll down to " . . . and here's confronting the lies of omission").

I very much look forward to your considered response to this extremely serious issue - or are we to assume that in over thirty years, nothing has changed?

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Sharp Comments From The Sunshine Coast Daily

Click on the image to enlarge & read. Article here.

Quote again here, with my background links added for emphasis . . .

Don't be a dickhead, Indonesia. Locks up a 14-year-old boy for a month over a small bag of pot that he was probably entrapped into buying from dodgy cops.

Meanwhile, Schapelle Corby recently marked her seventh year in an Indonesian sewer.

The whole country is rotten with corruption and has a ludicrous judicial system, yet expects to be taken seriously.

I'd probably fall asleep in parliament too if Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was speaking.

Schapelle Corby - Australia's Dept of Transport Security Seek to Cover Up Horrific Security Breaches


Click on the picture to enlarge and read.

Letter of appeal to the Australian Information Commissioner:

CC - Every member of the Scottish Parliament

Dear John,

On the 8th of October 2004, Qantas Airlines illegally carried unscreened luggage, and on 13 December 2011, I put in a Freedom of Information application to Australia's Office of Transport Security, relating to that horrific breach. I also note we have just passed the 23rd anniversary of the Lockerbie disaster, and I watched this National Geographic programme about it yesterday evening.

However, in their infinite wisdom, that department has decided the information I'm seeking "Is not in the public interest," and has thus decided to impose a fee of over $1,200 on an ordinary member of the public (me), who is trying to access it. Here is their email to me, and here is their letter. I am appealing that decision with you, on the grounds that information is manifestly "In the public interest" - and I very much think the families of the 270 victims of the Lockerbie disaster (and every other reasonable person reading this), would agree with me.

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Australian Customs Admit Aussies Do NOT Smuggle Marijuana TO Indonesia


Click on the image to enlarge and read.

And here's another smoking gun - a new full admission from Australian Customs that an illegal flow of marijuana FROM Australia TO Bali does not exist, and never has. And this is exactly the same question that the Keystone Cops (otherwise known as the Australian Federal Police), are currently running away from at a million miles an hour . . .

Schapelle Corby - The Duffer Gets His Knickers In A Twist

I guess it's a very big problem for the Sydney Morning Herald's resident whacko and promoter of lies - how do you attack Schapelle's supporters with actually mentioning them? Seems you can't, so he ended up giving Schapellegate an extremely big plug in his latest article. Maybe he didn't notice all the incriminating evidence he just promoted? So methinks we're well past the "Ignore" stage . . . well done folks . . .

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

Mahatma Gandhi

And while Duffer's newest offering will line a few thousand budgie cages and re-cycling bins in a few days time, as he knows, the top Google search result for his book is a lot more enduring. . .

Schapelle Corby - Asking The Information Commissioner For Help, Re Basic Public Data

Click on the picture above to enlarge & read.

Dear John,

In November 2011 I made this FOI request to the Australian Federal Police (investigating whether or not an illicit flow of marijuana FROM Australia TO Indonesia has ever existed), and I've just received this point blank refusal from them, so I'm formally writing to you now to appeal that decision.

At no time (that I am aware of), did their FOI officer phone me to discuss this fairly straightforward matter. Briefly, I am seeking public information relating to the commercial, criminal smuggling of marijuana FROM Australia, TO Indonesia (if such an illicit flow exists, and the press quotes above seem to indicate it doesn't) - such as data relating to arrests for this crime, staff training materials relating to detecting this crime, and formal inquiries/investigations into this crime.

Now this shouldn't be be too difficult, as I believe this is exactly the kind of information routinely collated and collected by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Further, if no such data exists (which it may not, because smuggling marijuana FROM Australia, TO Indonesia is not an economic proposition, and never has been), then I expect the AFP to tell me that in writing - and not wilfully avoid that obvious point by saying, in the 21st century, it's "Too difficult" for them to access information (re international trends in drug crime), which is routinely collated and collected by the United Nations.

Or maybe, considering the circumstances, it's just too embarrassing for them to put that obvious point in writing?

I look forward to your reply.

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Freedom of Information Application to The Office of Transport Security

Dear Paul,

This is a formal Freedom of Information application. Please treat it as such.

As this correspondence makes perfectly clear, Schapelle's boogie board bag was (quite illegally), loaded on to her flight to Indonesia without any screening. The security implications of this are horrific. Can you please supply me with any and all investigations (and recommendations), your department carried out in relation to that specific breach - and also any correspondence relating to the decision not to provide information about that specific breach to Schapelle's lawyers at the time of her trial.

Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Time To Sue the Australian Government?

Considering the latest news about Fred Martens, I most certainly think it is - for these very good reasons . . .

  • Hiding primary evidence, e.g. the fact Schapelle’s boogie board bag was not entered into Sydney Airport Corporation’s computerised luggage handling systems, and was (quite illegally), not screened before it was loaded on to her flight to Indonesia.

  • Failing to explain why Qantas/Sydney Airport baggage handlers, who the AFP openly admit were engaged in major criminal acitivity (on the day Schapelle flew), were never arrested or charged.

  • Failing to formally and officially object (to Indonesia), re:

  1. The unprecedented severity of Schapelle’s sentence.
  2. Their failure to weigh Schapelle’s luggage on arrival.
  3. Their failure to preserve a single shred of CCTV, relating to her arrest and interrogation.
  4. Their failure to treat the physical evidence in an appropriate manner, and their failure to arrange appropriate forensic testing.
  5. Their failure to provide any evidence that Schapelle was “Trafficking” marijuana, despite the fact she was convicted of “Trafficking” in the most bizarre circumstances, as a flow of this drug FROM Australia, TO Indonesia does not exist, and never has - for very obvious economic reasons.

Schapelle Corby - There's Some New Protest Banners on The Way

Click on the image to enlarge.

The picture on the beach was taken last year, it's a brilliant banner, and as you can see, there's another design (underneath), on the way for some imminent public outings - along with flyers, and film footage of events for You Tube.

Schapelle Corby - On Love, Power & Beauty

Since becoming involved in this injustice, there's one thing that's never ceased to amaze and puzzle me, why are some people fighting so hard to keep Schapelle where she is, given the continuing smears? What's the big deal?

She's just an ordinary young woman, who could have been any one of us, or anyone of our loved ones, who was swept up in a horror beyond her comprehension. Many people see and understand the terrible corruption that led up to that - but I'm really not interested in it, other than using exposure (if necessary), as a lever to get her home.

Once her feet are back on Australian soil, I will (with very great pleasure), delete this whole blog, never ask another question, and never send another email. My garden is crying out for attention. I also think many other campaigners feel the same. It's amazing what can happen when you just ask nicely.

What's done is done, it cannot be undone - there's no place for hate, no place for recriminations, no place for blame. That's destructive. This is about going forward into the light, into healing and compassion.

And lets' face it, who is to judge? None of us are perfect, and I think the root of all evil is fear. Sometimes people are unkind, callous, greedy, arrogant, corrupt or whatever - but that's their path to learn from. And hopefully, when it's time for them to look into the dark face of mortality and decay (as we all do), that anxious pain will disappear, and they'll realise they're held in the deeply loving heart of the Universe.

So what's the point of wealth, if you have the heart of a frightened pauper - and if a poor man has a soul bursting with joy, love and laughter, tell me, who is the richer? What's life worth, if truth is your enemy? I once found a wallet in the shopping centre car pack, bursting with cash. I never counted it, but it was probably a couple of thousand dollars. If I'd just put it in my pocket, kept the money and walked away, no-one would have known - but I'd have known. And that's the point, I couldn't do it because I knew how I'd feel if it was me. There was a drivers licence in there too, so I found the guy, and took his cash back to him. He was amazed, and very grateful. And I just felt so good, much richer than $2,000 (or so), would have made me.

This is the glue that has enabled our evolution and survival for millions of years - empathy, co-operation and love. It's hard wired into our genes. There's a much deeper past than wars and conflicts, one that was almost edited out of history - and it's the tale of our mutual and joyful inter-dependence.

So anyone who can see what Schapelle is going through, and look the other way, hide the truth and even try to harm her, is living in absolute poverty - whatever their bank balance says
