'Chief Judge Siriat... has never acquitted an accused drug offender in about 500 cases in his 15 years on the bench.'
1 Million Dollar REWARD
Airport Security Officer Mysterious Death:
'Revelations a former airport security officer tipped authorities off to a domestic drug-running operation at Sydney Airport, before he *mysteriously died* in 2002, proved the Australian Federal Police knew more than they were admitting, said an adviser to Corby's team, Vasu Rasiah.
Former Australian Protective Services (APS) officer Gary Lee-Rogers was found dead in his Queanbeyan flat in October 2002 after alerting authorities to the racket in a letter.
His family and whistle-blowers believe he was the victim of a revenge murder.'
'in emails to friends, Gary Lee-Rogers predicted he would be killed because of what he had allegedly discovered.'
'He said his death would be covered up as a suicide.'
'The AFP all the way along has been the biggest obstruction in this case. Why are they lying so much?'
'the AFP should explain to the Australian public why they had refused to assist Indonesian authorities with finger-printing the plastic bag containing the marijuana.'
Rumours and Scuttlebutt.
I bet if the person caught wasn't a pretty young girl, no one would give a damn. Let justice take place without trying to heavy a sovereign country.
I disagree totally....it comes down to the fact that the judge just doesn't want to destroy his 15 year track record.Originally Posted by Knobby22
Our police are corrupt, our baggage handlers are corrupt, and our judges are corrupt too!
She is Australian, one of ours! Show some sympathy!!!!!
If she is guilty answer me this:Originally Posted by Knobby22
WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU TAKE WEED INTO BALI WHEN ITS 100 TIMES CHEAPER OVER THERE?!
They say the law is an ass; well in Indonesia its an a@#e!
After all that tsunami aid we sent them the least they could do is give our citizens some bloody justice!
bit of this is in order
see how they like the SAS!
Schapelle is innocent - no two ways about it.
Let's face it we don't know whether she is guilty or innocent, Tsunami aid has bugger all to do with it though.Originally Posted by loakglen
See it from another perspective, if she is guilty this excuse of it being planted is a good way to get out of the position she is in, if it works that is.I wonder how many other guilty drug dealers have come up with this excuse ?
If she is found innocent it opens the door for the guilty ones to get away with it.A bit of a get out of jail free card.
I have no idea whether she is innocent or guilty so I certainly aren't signing any petition.I tend to agree with Knobby 22, a pretty young girl, butter wouldn't melt in her mouth.If it was a bloke, unshaven, scruffy , long hair would you think the same ? I think not.
If she is innocent then hopefully justice will prevail, if guilty she deserves whatever punishment is given.
I also don't know if she is guilty or not.
Sometimes people do stupid things which they regret but the law still makes you pay for your stupidity.
I don't know if they did but I would question her on her boogieboard experiences. You don't see many female boogieboarders and I would assume that not too may females would take their boogieboards o.s. To me she does not appear to be the type to be a dedicated boogieborder but I could be wrong.
But any court in the world can only make their decisions on the evidence presented even though sometimes that may be wrong.
it was her little brothers boogie boardOriginally Posted by dutchie
Thanks for that info Loakglen - there goes my theory.
This is how I think it will be played out.
The trial will take its course.
A judgement will be handed down.
Indonesian law will have been seen to be done.
Howard will then approach the Indonesian President who has already indicated that compassion would be shown by him.
She will be allowed back into Australia to serve out her sentance.
Sentance will be much more lienient here.
There has to be diplomatic protocol followed,everyone must save face.
This way both Governments will be seen to be Caring and both decisions will be popular---lots of backslapping!!
Suffice to say that on two separate occasions, using two different airlines, items in my bags have mysteriously rearranged themselves on domestic flights. There was nothing even remotely suspicious looking packed in those bags. One incident occurred in 1995, the other one earlier this year.
I now use locks and if anyone wants to check my bags, they can do so in my presence. If this costs the airlines money (time) or holds someone up then so be it.
That said, according to an aircraft maintenance engineer interviewed on radio last Friday it's very common to find lots of cut padlocks and also pretty easy to get a security pass to get access to airports. Apparently his tool boxes etc. are never checked so it would be easy do do practically anything.
Yes someone is a crook and I think it is most likely an airline / airport employee. No certainties but it seems reasonably clear that there are crook baggage handlers in various Australian airports.
Anyone got any good ideas on how to fully secure checked baggage? Padlocks obviously aren't enough.
Just on the point that no one would import Dope to Indonesia.
The stuff Schapelle had was high grade, the good stuff. Much stronger than the lousy Indonesian stuff. She would have been paid well if it had got through.
I can't imagine an airline worker losing $50,000 worth of drugs. How do you explain that to Mr Big. I also can't believe Scappelle didn't notice a big bump and a lot of extra weight when she picked up the board and waited in the queue. I have worked in Indonesia and just cannot believe her story.
She is no innocent. She has worked in the girle bars of Japan, and she had been to Bali recently. I think she is just a bit dim taking such a stupid risk to have a holiday with part of her family.
The truth is that the judges have seen the evidence, we haven't. The judges will rule the truth as they see it. This rubbish about corruption or wanting to keep a track record is racist and naive. The judges and the Indonesian Government realise how this may harm tourism.
I agree completely with Tech-a as to how it will probably end.
Out of Melbourne you can have your bags completely "Glad Wrapped".
We use coloured and security numbered plastic pull through zip--- pull tag fasteners.If you cant cut it you cant undo the bag without destroying it.
Those bike locks that are made of cable. The only way to cut 'em is a hammer and cold chisel/oxy-torch. Pliers or bolt cutters wont work. My pushy never got pinched as a kid.Originally Posted by Smurf1976
Yes it will probably pan out like that but not from lack of public support. I dont care if people have their own opinion but please try to make informed hypotheses. I apologise if im ranting but i truly beleive this girl needs the support of the nation.Originally Posted by Knobby22
And it soooo does have everything to do with tsunami aid. I for one wouldn't have given them a penny if i had known they were going to pull this crap. Their just jealous! We give those buggers heaps in foreign aid then they bomb us and to add insult to injury they won't even give our citizens a fair trial.
Cop in court over cocaine racket....I rest may case, she is sooooo innocent!
Locking a bag will only see it cut if customs want to seach it. A much better alternative for a traveller would be to drip wax over the zip. If the wax has been broken, don't pick it up off the luggage carousel. Tell airport security (or other official) you believe your bags have been tampered with and request that they remove it from the carousel and request they open it in your presence. That way, should any undesirables have appeared in there, its unlikely they will hold you responsible for it.
Wouldnt you do just the same if you saw your locks opened or broken or the Zip Tags cut?
firstly id like to apologize for misrepresenting some of the facts in this case. A bit too over-zealous perhaps? but after watching the doco on schapelle last night youd have to be a moron not to agree that theres enough 'reasonable doubt' to free her.
I wouldnt say she is pretty... But she is young and is a girl.
Notice how the bali 9 arnt in the daily news anymore?
But i personally think the meida attention should help her case.
With such a public view.surly the input from howard will have a bearing in somone mind.
NOT GUILTY. just my take on the whole thing!
