Freedom Today for Schapelle Corby

Update: Video here.

Update: Schapelle Corby has been released. She's in this photo with the black and white plaid head covering. Some video here. Here's a picture of the media scramble as she left. She was whisked into a prison bus, where she will be taken to the prosecutor's office to be processed, a 40 minute drive, and then to the Bali Corrections Board office, a thirty minute drive, where she'll be met by her parole officer and then released.

Schappelle Corby will be released today from Bali's Keborkhan prison. The head of the prison said the release papers have arrived and she will definitely be leaving through the front door of the prison today.

The media is out in force waiting at the prison door. More than 100 police officers are on hand to ensure her safety.

9 years, 4 months and 2 days.

Boycott Bali.

    Boycott Bali? (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    Mexico does this sort of thing all the time, and its based almost entirely on USA policy.

    Its time to end this war on drugs and focus on updating the corrupt governments of the world it has financed.

    You've got a point... (5.00 / 5) (#2)

    "boycott the world" is perhaps more appropriate.

    But Indonesia is especially cruel and unusual in a cruel and unusual worldwide war on drugs.  With any luck, with Uraguay and CO/WA, we're turning the corner to civilized enlightenment.

    I can't help but think that one of the reasons that she was released was because of international exposure and pressure.  This includes Talkleft, which has been in Schapelle Corby's corner since the beginning.
