Schapelle Corby - A question to Michael Robotham, President of the Australian Crime Writers Association

Click on the screen grab above to enlarge and read comments posted in this thread.  Comments also posted below with the clickable link (And here's a further, updated screen grab from Michael Robotham's Facebook page after this polite Tweet to him, clearly showing his refusal to engage with the issue)

Michael, I believe you're President of the Australian Crime Writers Association? I also assume you'd be very hurt and angry if you and/or your family were falsely accused of major crime in a book awarded honours by your association? A book that also illegally ripped off family photos and was pulped (by court order), for that very clear infraction? So why are you refusing to respond to Schapelle's family in the wake of their unambiguous legal victory, documented hereDoes the Australian Crime Writers Association have such poor standards that defamatory books (which also breach copyright), are held up as shining examples of excellence to the membership? Please do the honourable thing Michael, stop ignoring Schapelle's family and reply to their concerns. Thank you.

Schapelle Corby - Blowing the whistle on the ALP's complicity with inhumanity & corruption

Click on the pic to see comments posted in this new Guardian thread. Also reproduced with the links below.

Really Bill? The same Nazi that was blind to the importation of drugs and guns on the ALP's watch now oversees the torture of refugees: and the ALP refused to pardon the brave Australian Customs whistleblower Allan Kessing who spoke out about the corruption: with more on Allan Kessing here:

Schapelle Corby & the Bali 9: Fairfax & ABC Australia take every opportunity they can to lie and smear

Click on the pic above see comments posted in this ABC Australia Facebook thread. Also reproduced below with the live links:

So, Neil McMahon covered Schapelle's case for Fairfax? No wonder his article drips venom for her and fails to mention the gross corruption within the Australian Federal Police that sold both the Bali 9 and Schapelle down the river.  Fairfax and their journos take every opportunity they can to lay into Schapelle, after their squalid hack Eamonn Duff was caught with his pants down over his lies and smears about her and her family - so here's the news story ABC Australia refused to report about a court victory that cost Duff and his publisher hundreds of thousands of dollars and here's more background on Fairfax's deliberate and calculated smear campaign As for our graft-ridden AFP, this graphic post has been shared over 400 times​ and here's the doco about the corruption that sent an innocent woman to hell

Schapelle Corby & the gross hypocrisy of the "30 Days of Press Freedom" campaign: Time to expose media crime & smear Down Under

Click on the pic to enlarge & read comments posted in this Facebook thread. Also reproduced below with the clickable links.

Press freedom? Does that include the "Freedom" of the Australian press to illegally spy on and stalk ordinary, working class Australian families? I'm sorry, but I cannot support this while not one Australian journalist will report on or investigate endemic media crime Down Under: nor uncover one of the foulest and most widespread media smear campaigns and witch hunts in living history: And remember, Australians are not fools. A recent Roy Morgan poll showed that only 18% of the population trusts journalists:

Schapelle Corby & the parasites at Who Magazine

More parasitical reporting from Who Magazine, eh? Here are the facts you refuse to report

Chris Graham claims he will prove the allegations he made against Senator Nova Peris on 3 November 2014, but has so far bottled out on explaining why he thinks the Indonesian's courts verdict on Schapelle Corby is absolute proof of her guilt (backed up with his facts)

Here's me - a long time campaigner for social justice, as also described in this article at The Stringer. On Tuesday 10 February 2015, I rang New Matilda to speak to Chris Graham, re comments he'd made about Schapelle's "Guilt." In brief, he seems to think the Indonesian court's verdict is absolute proof of the allegations against her, so I called him (and his publication), to challenge him to expand on that strange thesis in print (given many innocent people are convicted in court, including Lindy Chamberlain).  I found his manner aggressive, bullying, personal and abusive. Bizarrely, he harangued me at great length about what I do for a living (actually, I'm an RN and work round the clock at the local hospital).  Because it had nothing to do with the simple question I was asking him I refused to answer, so he accused me of being unemployed (so I guess if I was, which I'm not, that makes my valid questions worthless? Classism and snobbery much?) Actually, I work a lot harder than him (as most nurses do), in much more difficult circumstances.

I had a strong personal feeling Chris would not have spoken to a man in the same way he spoke to me. Like most women, I've come across more than one macho, strutting bully and they all leave the same unmistakeable emotional impression.

Anyway, enough of that.  I also gave him a serve about the long delay in following up on his serious allegations about Nova Peris - at which he promised (with some glee I thought), he was following them up, and not only that, he would prove them in print without a shadow of doubt. So I guess we can look forward to another witch burning from this ham fisted male (given his grossly inappropriate questions to me about my personal circumstances), of the so-called "Left."

Schapelle Corby & an open, public challenge to New Matilda

Lindy Chamberlain was the scapegoated woman, the officially sanctioned target.  Hey folks, come around with your rotten tomatoes and eggs, it's fine, blow off some steam, vent your fury, have a good time, throw as much shit at the murderous bitch as you want, she deserves it.  Want to speak up for her? Don't dare, we'll put you in the stocks too - and if you're unlucky we'll tie you to the stake as well and light the pyre.

Lindy was beyond the pale, outside all social protection - and the "Left" (and self proclaimed "Feminists"), ran like scalded cats from the witch.

Lindy was eventually vindicated by new evidence and a small band of courageous, non-politically aligned supporters who had the integrity and intelligence to withstand the tidal wave of derision.  If that had not happened, "Left" publications like New Matilda would still happily publish vitriol about her and call anyone who didn't support the popular belief Lindy was a throat-slitting Satanist a "Nutter." However, they're now restrained from that path because it's no longer the "Done thing" or "Politically correct," thanks to the efforts of a brave few.

What makes me say this? Because Schapelle is our new scapegoated woman (the constant object of foul, sexist abuse and smear) - and New Matilda has joined in the fun, actively inviting their readership to mock her more than once and vowing to write about her only in the most negative terms.  They also ridicule the grassroots justice campaign fighting to clear her name, even though some high profile and well respected people like Christine Assange (Julian's Mother), added her voice to the cause, as well as well as well known human rights activist and anti-racism campaigner Gerry Georgatos (in articles like this).

Even if Schapelle's guilty (which she isn't), this level of vitriol and focus is quite bizarre. She did 10 years in appalling conditions for a relatively minor "Crime," how many more pounds of flesh does the baying pack want? Smell the acrid smoke of a witch burning much? Doesn't New Matilda have some corporate criminals and/or genocidal despots to focus on, who deserve exposure?

When asked to justify their belief in Schapelle's guilt, New Matilda either refuses to reply or throws further insults and ad hominem attacks - and if anyone points out all official sources completely deny a commercial flow of marijuana FROM Australia, TO Bali (ever), they go purple with rage and scream even more abuse (via Twitter usually).  They also refuse to speak to retired senior Australian Customs officer Allan Kessing, who asserts (without reservation), Schapelle was the innocent victim of airport corruption.  They've never given any explanation for that refusal, just as they've never give an explanation for ignoring the mountain of documentation (obtained via FOI legislation), which proves Schapelle's innocence and underlines official corruption. Seems criminal airport staff like this don't exist in New Matilda's utopia.

So here's a challenge for you New Matilda, go ahead, write an article "Proving" Schapelle's "Guilt," and do it without defaming her family (because you'll get your arse successfully sued if you do), and do it without defaming a dead man just because you can. And when you write it, also watch the social media feedback on your sites like a hawk, because if any comments step over the mark into the realm of defaming the living, you'll be sued for that too.

So succinctly put, either step up to the mark or crawl back into your hole.

Agree completely with Russell Brand, the Liberal Party's policy on asylum seekers is completely vile, but that's not the only major concern. Here's a graphic, new open letter to current Liberal Party Chief Whip Phillip Ruddock (rusted on from the Howard-era), about lucrative deals for insider criminals his department approved when he was Attorney General

Schapelle Corby, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran: Countering the smears, lies & ommissions of Channel 9 reporter Jayne Azzopardi

Click on the picture to the left to enlarge and read comments posted in this ninemsm Facebook thread (and also posted again in reply to Kade Jackson's top comment). Also posted below with the embedded links:

Most of the Bali Bombers were free after just 5 years - and even the Indonesian men who hacked the heads off of three children on their way to school did not get the death penalty, so if Jayne Azzopardi (the author of this article, who falsely and maliciously claims Schapelle's living in a "Luxury villa"), wants to stop Schapelle bashing for one moment and point out some real unfairness, here's the BBC article  (one got the same sentence as Schapelle, two got much less). And here's the background on the entrenched Australian Federal Police corruption that sold both Schapelle and the Bali 9 down the river.
