(1/21/2006)

Shapelle Corby, the Australian woman in Bali's jail following her conviction for attempting to smuggle 4.2 kilograms of marijuana into Indonesia, suffered major setbacks on several fronts last week as the Indonesian Supreme Court formally rejected her appeal and reinstated the original sentence of 20 years handed down by the Denpasar Courts in May 2005. Prior to the latest ruling, Corby's sentence was reduced to 15 years on an appeal to Bali High Court.

The reasoning by the three-judge panel to reinstate the original sentence against Ms. Corby remains a mystery while her lawyers await a formal copy of the High Court's decision. The Indonesian Supreme Court review represented Corby's last legal avenue for an acquittal or retrial.

Legal observers now point to a Presidential pardon as Corby's last remaining hope to avoid serving her 20-year sentence.

Blow to Credibility

The credibility of Corby's ongoing efforts to portray herself as the hapless and innocent victim of a botched drug delivery perpetrated by unknown smugglers who place the drugs in her baggage in Australia suffered a body blow with the arrest of her half-brother, James Kisinia, in Queensland last week. The 18 year-old Kisinia, who was traveling with Corby at the time of her arrested at Bali's airport in October 2004, has been apprehended in connection with a home invasion and assault that occurred near Brisbane on Tuesday, January 17, 2006. During that incident, police report a woman was tied up, a man assaulted with a baseball bat and a quantity of drugs taken by the assailant.

Kisinia has been charged by Australian police with deprivation of liberty, assault occasioning bodily harm and possession of a dangerous drug.

During the course of Corby's highly publicized trial in Bali, various groups in Australia supported her claims of innocence by calling for a boycott of Bali and a suspension of tsunami relief projects in Indonesia.
