Schapelle Corby: Message From Family

First off, the news today is that Shcapelle has lodged her appeal.

Second, I have received an e-mail from someone close to Schapelle Corby advising that this is now the official site for Schapelle Corby and that the family has placed its trust in Kay Danes, once imprisoned in Laos for a year for allegedly smuggling jewels. Ms. Danes is now working with Schapelle's legal and press team. The family has released this message:

"Thank you to the Australian public for your support to Schapelle and her family. It has been a difficult journey but the Corby's are hopeful that Schapelle will return home.

Under advice from the QC's in Perth, the Corby family request that all fundraising activity, donation collection, rallies and protests cease from this point on. The QC's in Perth are currently working on the appeal for Schapelle and will advise, if need be, when and if there is a need for that type of financial undertaking.

The Corby family deeply appreciate your concerns and remain hopeful that the Balinese people will not suffer as a result of the extensive media attention given to this case.

If you would like to assist the family then please simply write a letter to your Federal Member of Parliament to remind them that you still care about Schapelle and the many other Australians detained in prisons throughout the world. Thank you."

Kay Danes
FPSS Advocate
On Behalf of Ros Corby.

    No comments? "on this poor young woman", only my little words?, it is sad, but this is normal in the land of dead people who can't feel a thing for others being victimized by others in other cultures, it appears that many people will not say a thing about this injustice because of being called a Racists, when she is the one who is suffering under a evil racists state, sad,sad, world, and someday billions of pay will pay for not understanding why this outrageous madness is inside all people. In other words you will pay for not caring about others so be happy in your little worlds the day is coming when you all will understand and be her.

    I noticed that TL removed the call for a "boycott" of Bali. That was the right thing to do.
