In a few days.
Going to be interesting to see how this unfolds, don't think she is allowed to profit from the crime, but i guess she is already a celebrity in a sense, life is going to get possibly even weirder for the poor girl.
Boarded a Malindo flight 10 mins ahead of time leaving the media vultures on the Virgin flight.
Starting to feel for poor Shaps ,media like a pack of dogs and they have created there own Frankenstein .........she will probably do alright money wise maybe but not sure about her sanity being fukin hounded wherever she goes....shes done her time and way too much i might add but give her some peace.

Who gives a toss if she's coming home. I hate the crap the media thinks we actually need to know. It lead every news Chanel last night. What a joke...
I was waiting for the high speed paparazzi chase thru the Tugun Bypass Tunnel with a drunk chauffeur at the wheel
Ha ha! And a rejig of Elton's 'Candle in the Wind'.
Or maybe Doc Neeson would tinker with 'Am I ever gonna see your face again?'
First comes the crash, then...
the awful silence...
The Bodyguard certainly has a flair for the dramatic, I wouldn't like to be at Pacific Fair next time she goes shopping
Middle class rut,, New low
Have't read a single article on her over the weekend on principle. There was one headline talking about her coming home party throwing dirt on the lavish bottle of vodka one of her aunts was bringing around. Aussie press is making me sick at the moment leave a happy family in peace and move on.
I'm with you Gaz, don't read it, don't click on it, don't justify it.
Clam,i love that photo!i always wondered over the years why we havent seen more surf shots of her??
I'm a little embarrassed to admit this but I'm kind of fascinated by her coming home or the whole story/saga. (read all the books ;P )
I guess because i can relate to the story in a way (not that I've been a drug smuggler), but spent years on the Goldie, flown into Bali countless times, and although I've never been a big smoker most of my friends have, Schapelle's kind of like a girl i would/could know. (which kind of makes the story so real)
I am blown away by how much others are into her coming homes though i mean she is now up to 160K Instagram followers.
So far its been a circus , with the highlight for me being how many clowns they could fit into a black merc with tinted windows
Talking of clowns - anyone ever seen cirque de Soleil ?
Thinking of hitting their proposed Oz tour this year .
Shappelle might be there ....if only to tie this question into the thread.
This is a different article about schapelles instagram status.
Its a good read .
Troppo did you ever see her in bali whilst she was on parole surfing the booger ?
Yeah good read Clam the Vice link.
I know this sounds crazy but last week that painting would have been virtually nothing, now if auctioned on E-bay i bet it would go for good $$$$
BTW.Old article but I think this is a believable story http://www.smh.com.au/national/convicted-drug-dealer-tells-of-corby-smug...
Good blog read : Corby and the SA drug dealer :Photos revealed.
For Sale.. Mercedes , white , oversize front grill, has a high pitched squeal ,some hail damage. best offer.
H Ha ..Gold.
Classic post, tubeshooter.
Absolutely classic misogyny.
I'm sure Tubeshooter is an equal opportunity belittler Blindboy ;)
Cruel Tubes...... but funny as fuk....
haha righto so the retired drug dealer just doesn't want to lie anymore so he's ratting out all his old associates? Or just the ones that are dead or in an indo prison that might get him a quick buck in an interview? I'm still waiting on the other 50,000 drug dealers in the northern suburbs to be named and shamed by Malcolm McCauley the local crim-turned-anti-drug-crusader.
Any time now old mate Michael Atkinson has been looking for a rat like you in his war on the bikies for years!
Hey Blowin I'd highly recommend cirque soleil went 2 years back & easily one of the best live performances I've ever seen.

Some posts re Liberal Party Corruption in Corbys Case.
That's interesting udo there's a fair bit there. Basically it says that everyone knew the truth but Qantas and the LNP covered it up to protect the AFP and themselves. Here's a few from that page (AFP documents):
"Given Mr Askew's propensity to deflect all responsibility from Qantas, it is worth citing an incident which most definitely did occur on "a Qantas pass".
Schapelle Corby checked her bags in underweight, but they were subsequently found to be 5kg overweight on the Qantas system (which would have carried an excess charge of $175). This clearly indicated the addition of a significant weight factor, after the bags had left her hands. This is confirmed via their own submissions and correspondence.
As above, neither Schapelle Corby, her legal team, or the Bali court, were ever informed. "
Those links are disturbing eh !!

Views from an old hermit/Hippie type way out west from Armidale NSW
I don't buy these conspiracy theories .
I mean okay lets for a minute say okay there was some syndic moving pot around oz via airlines in peoples luggage. (which to me kind of seems high risk for not much reason at all, less risk to move by road)
But lets say it's true.
Then it just happens that:
1. They are stupid enough to put it in a luggage that is going to be going to Bali and they lose their pot(as the tags would have had transit to Bali on them)
2. Out of all the passengers luggage it could end up in, it just happens to end up in a bag of a girl who's father was known to be involved in growing and possibly selling pot.
Brother was well known to have sold drugs including pot on the Goldie.
Has a sister that lives in Bali, hence has access to the expat market where guys will pay top dollar for pot because good pot in Bali is hard to come by and its ten times less risky too buy pot from a fellow expat rather than a local.
Sorry way to many consciences for me.
Just watched that vid Udu
It was terrible it's just making assumptions, some of what they say can be true but we don't really get a good look at the pot, it could be a bit mouldy and the bag could have been left open, to me it looks like it's dried out more than the original video of the pot.
Knowing Indonesia any little tips that have gone to the bottom of the bag could even be poured into a smaller bag and taken home by staff.
And then even if we believe the evidence was swapped all it confirms is the pot was really from Australia because it was good pot, swapped for less potent local pot, otherwise why swap it?
But in this Vid it seems they are saying it's not baggage handlers who are to blame but Indonesian authority's set her up?
But if that was the case then why swap their own pot they set her up with for different pot?
But then at the same time saying Australian government are in it also, trying to cover up baggage handlers moving drugs?
They seem like they can't even decide their own theory .
Makes no sense at all.
Perhaps I'm naive but to me the economics of it all has never stacked up. If the SA drug dealer bloke reckons old Mick Corby can get 4 times the value he paid for good pot in bali vs east coast, who are these idiots buying pot at such a massive markup in bali? When I go over there I drink bintang like everyone else not the imported european beers or french champagnes. The same rules should apply to drugs yeh? We all know you can easily get prescription stuff over there off the street so surely whatever expat market they claim exists would be buying something much cheaper and local. I thought living cheaper was one of the lures of bali? How many kuta bogans are buying weed for 4 times the price when they could be buying all the other disco biccies available for peanuts?
The market is for expats i guess guys that just want a good smoke.
Apparently most weed in Indonesia is crap, although I'm not sure why as good pot depends on genetics, hydro pot is only better than bush buds because you can control the growing environment and grow the plant to its best potential, although their no reason why you couldn't grow pot in Indonesia with a hydro set up and it's easy to transport or get seed with good genetics (high THC etc)
I remember reading their is over 30,000 expats living in Bali.
like i said above it's also much safer to get pot of a fellow expat than an Indonesian.
I believe that most of the stuff that comes from Oz isn't normally loaded onto planes in tourist luggage,,. It goes over in yachts and is often transferred at sea in Indo to "locally flagged" vessels of varying kinds. I was also of the understanding that "on the spot fines" for such a discretion ranged from US$20k to US$50k. Unlike paying off a local cop for having no helmet etc ,bribes of such a nature are generally shared around and I cant see $1000 being enough in an airport .
Herb via air ,Def a direct flight be better ...Bris to Denp direct ..rather than via Sydney
Did she really take a connector through Sydney udo? It beggars belief that an organised crime syndicate would send $30k worth of dope through not one, but TWO major Australian airports before going overseas, especially Sydney. Seems a bit risky for a professional operation? I can't see even the dumbest aussie thinking that's a good idea.
Be far easier to buy and transport 4kgs of indo Buds from the Sumartran highlands to Bali .
hmm sorry udo,,but if youre thinking about going via sea then you've obviously never been boarded by the Malaysian or Singapore Patrol vessels. I've done the Strait of Malacca. They don't miss a trick anymore, and they both have some seriously high powered boats , aerial surveillance , the works. They deal with piracy , drugs , people smuggling , you name it. I can think of at least 20 better options than going that route
Who mentioned by vessel...i was thinking Malindo Air
haha, wise choice, business class no doubt. Drug dealers are getting preferential treatment this month. Just mention Schapelle for a 10% discount
Ron Bakir and Tampoe the lawyer were all over this in the early days ...wonder what happened there ?
Yeah so many questions without answers.
Kind of related
Gold Coast businessman Ron Bakir emerged as Corby's white knight in the months following her arrest, acting as a spokesman in the campaign to clear her name.
Mr Bakir, who founded phone retailer Crazy Ron's as a teenager, said he had no direct link to Corby before her arrest but took on the cause because of a perceived injustice against the Gold Coast woman.
He continues to live on the Gold Coast and runs a property development company.
In 2013, he was named as the Gold Coast's young entrepreneur of the year.
In March, Mr Bakir listed his two-level penthouse apartment on the market for more than $12 million.
During the Corby fiasco, he stumped up funds to help pay legal fees, while criticising the Howard government for not doing more to support her.
"The Australian public must do whatever they can to ensure she comes home, whatever they can," he said in 2005.
But Mr Bakir's relationship with the Corby family eventually soured within 18 months, and ties between the groups were cut.
"I've come out with a tarnished reputation, criticism everywhere, but at the end of the day I know the truth and that's what's important for me," he told Fairfax Media in 2006.
Two years later, Mr Bakir admitted he was "shattered" when allegations of Mick Corby's drug past became public.
Robin Tampoe got struck off as a lawyer
Also claimed he made up the baggage handler interference story WTF ?
But you would notice 4kg in your bag.......na guilty as charged !
Wasn't there a story at the time the weed was for domestic market? Someone was meant to take the weed out between the two airports in oz but fucked up
And then the security footage disappeared
Sorry if its already been mentioned, I've been trying not to follow this
I reckon she's innocent, her sister had been in bali long enough to know to plead guilty and play nice if you're guilty
Schapelle literally drove herself crazy choosing the hard road of trying to prove her innocence.
If you were guilty you'd suck it up and play the game rather than fight what would be an impossible bureaucracy even under the best of circumstances
And if you're innocent you'd go nuts trying to prove so
Yeah the whole thing stinks the more I hear about it. I just can't picture anyone with the audacity to check in a bag that is almost entirely drugs loosely packed with little effort to conceal it. Any dealer with a brain would at least take SOME effort to hide it.
Have a look at it if that's not the most half-arsed job of packing anything I don't know what is.
This is an old Chasers War clip about the media and Mercedes, Still relevant today I think.
