Warning to FPSS members and visitors to this page.
A campaign based on the conspiracy theory: the political sacrifice of Schapelle Corby has be launched against a number of Government and non-government agencies, high profile community leaders, and most recently, the FPSS and its advocates, in particular, Kay Danes. 

The persons behind this have recently begun distributing a libelous email with a PDF attached, a dossier of screen shots, they claim is proof that such Governments, leaders, FPSS and Kay Danes are working against Schapelle Corby to ensure her ongoing detainment. These anonymous persons also claim that FPSS and Kay Danes are harassing families of prisoners and that dozens of complaints have been filed. This is complete and utter nonsense. It is a vindictive attack to undermine the credibility of this service and of its advocates.  These persons hide behind false IP addresses, fake email accounts and pseudonyms. If there was any validity to their claims then they would lodge them through a proper legal process. That they choose not to provide details to authorities further supports the belief that they are cyber-bullies. The matter has been reported to the Australian Federal Police and other appropriate authorities and overseas agencies.

Whilst many internet users seek to hide behind anonymity, intensive investigations are able to reveal the identity of such individuals. Such information can and should be forwarded to the authorities.

If you are subject to malicious attack, cyber-bullying or harassment then we urge you to report it to the Australian Federal Police.  


BeWare the Conspiracy Theory: The political sacrifice of Schapelle Corby
(Click on Newspaper for more information)

FPSS support Schapelle Corby's release and repatriation but will not be party to conspiracy theories, cyber-bullying or vindictive campaigns that do nothing to alleviate her suffering.
 


Schapelle Corby
THIS INFORMATION IS PROVIDED AS A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD
AND IS NOT PART OF ANY ACTIVE CAMPAIGN.

Schapelle Leigh Corby (born 10 July 1977) is an Australian woman convicted and imprisoned for the importation of 4.2kg into Bali, Indonesia. She was sentenced 20 years on 27 May 2005 and currently serves her sentence in Kerobokan prison, Bali.

Indonesian Customs Officers gave testimony at her trial that Schapelle Corby admitted the drugs were hers, a claim she vehemently denies. Since a prima facie was effectively established, the burden shifted to the defence to counter the prosecution case.

The case proceeded in accordance with Indonesian jurisprudence and concluded with Corby receiving a 20 year prison term. She remains incarcerated in Indonesia, her legal appeals have been exhausted, her legal Defence team were unable to present substantive evidence in an extraordinary legal appeal to have her conviction overturned. 

Schapelle's early release hopes were dashed when the Indonesian authorities rejected her appeal for parole. FPSS continues to hope that Schapelle will be repatriated to Australia under a Prisoner Transfer Agreement. Although the Indonesian and Australian Governments are yet to agree on any specific terms for such an agreement.

 Schapelle needs positive support and cannot be held responsible for what others say and do allegedly on her behalf. FPSS believe that Schapelle is not aware of 'THE LIES' that are being spread through online social networks to attack those detaining her, or those who may be in a position to help her.  We strongly caution supporters against joining social networking sites that operate under anonymous headings, anti-government or inflammatory headings. We believe these sites are not helpful to Schapelle's current situation.

'Not a conspiracy theory': Expendable Project defends Schapelle Corby claims

The lead researcher for a website claiming the Australian Government withheld evidence in the Schapelle Corby case denies he is engaged in a conspiracy theory. ABC Full Story here

Audio Link here (listen to interview)

The audios of Steve aka Morpheus aka Steve Preston are practically identical.

Interview that abc's Jon Faine had with the person calling themselves Steve Preston on the expendable project: http://www.abc.net.au/local/audio/2013/02/...m?§ion=news

Interview with the same person calling themselves Steve - Morpheus on the same subject (start listening at the 15:27 mark) : http://www.truthnews.com.au/web/radio/stor...schapelle_corby

"Preston" is a town near Macclesfield, coincidentally, home to Steve aka Morpheus and 50 other pseudonyms and the man behind the Expendable Project according to former EP members and former Schapelle Corby supporters who had close associations with him.

We urge you to avoid contact with persons associated with the Expendable Project, also known as Expendable TV and the People for Schapelle Facebook group. We have received numerous complaints from people in the community who have had the most disturbing encounters with these sites.

Schapelle Corby's parole bid dashed

CONVICTED drug-smuggler Schapelle Corby's bid for early release from Bali's Kerobokan jail is on hold indefinitely as Indonesian authorities move to close a loophole that may have allowed her to return to Australia if granted parole.Read full story here

FORMER JUSTICE MINISTER CHALLENGES CORBY CLEMENCY CUT
Original StoryYusril Mahendra
June, 7, 2012

JAKARTA/DENPASAR

Former justice minister Yusril Mahendra filed a legal challenge in Jakarta on Thursday against clemency granted to Australian drug-runner Schapelle Corby.

Mahendra, now a prominent Jakarta lawyer, is representing an Indonesian anti-drugs group that says it is dismayed that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono shaved five years off Corby’s 20-year prison term last month.The anti-drugs campaigners say the president’s decision – also criticised by several lawmakers in Jakarta – goes against the country’s drugs battle.

Corby, 34, was jailed for 20 years in 2005 for bringing 4.2 kilograms of marijuana into Bali. She had sought her jail term at Bali’s Kerobokan Prison be quashed and allow her to return to Australia on humanitarian grounds due to her claim that she is suffering from a mental illness.

Commentary

What is important to remember is that this is an issue that effects millions of Indonesians and those detained in their care, both now and in the future.

In regard to the reduction of sentence for Schapelle Corby, it was, as I understand, given on humanitarian grounds and was NOT in any way a reversal of the conviction that was decided in the Denpassar court. To that end, she remains convicted as charged. Whether others agree with the decision of her being found guilty is irrelevant, as there are mechanisms in the Indonesian judicial system to challenge a wrongful conviction. Her lawyers have not lodged any such challenge, so in effect, the matter now in regard to the President agreeing with the recommendations put to him, and acting upon those recommendations, does not in any way undermine the judicial system or Indonesia's tough stand on drug related crimes. Schapelle Corby was sentenced to serve a twenty year term. She has served 8 years already. That the judicial process can make such recommendations based on an individual's specific circumstances, particularly in relation to mental health, does not in any way send a message that Indonesia has gone soft on crime. To the contrary, it merely supports the idea that the Indonesian system for rehabilitation works and that is after all, the main reason for detaining persons. According to Indonesian correctional policy, prisoners are encouraged to develop occupational skills and to resolve psychological problems. This is a key element to ensure their reintegration into society is successful. Indonesia is not a barbaric society and nor is its justice system unable to show leniency.
