(3/17/2013)

The Jakarta Globe reports that the chief warden at Bali’s Kerobokan Prison has publicly cast doubts of any possibility that Schapelle Corby, the 36-year-old Australian marijuana smuggler, will walk out of his prison on parole, despite guarantees being made on her behalf by the Australian government.

Corby is currently scheduled to end her 20-year sentence, less remissions and time served, on September 27, 2017, after then spending nearly 12 years behind bars.

In recent weeks, the Australian government has made special written entreaties to the Indonesian Ministry of Justice seeking that Corby be allowed to spend the remainder of her sentence in Bali, living in a private residence under regular monitoring and conrol by law enforcement officials.

Gusti Ngurah Wiratna, the chief warden at Bali’s Kerobokan prison, has warned that the Australian woman’s uncooperative demeanor, a refusal to admit and take responsibility for her crimes, and failue ro adopt the role of a “justice collaborator” by providing full details behind her criminal activity – all weigh against any granting of parole.

Said Wiratna: 

“She should have admitted where the drugs came from on an official statement and then the statement would be sent to the National Narcotics Agency (BNN). Corby can choose not to be one (a justice collaborator) she has the immunity, but the consequence is that she can't be released on parole.”

Wiratna also told the press that in addition to letters sent by the Australian government and Corby’s family in support of her parole application, further clarifications on where she would live in Bali are needed together with a frank and full admission of wrongdoing by the prisoner.

Iskandar Nawing, the Indonesian lawyer representing Corby, said he would discuss the possibility of becoming a “justice collaborator” with his client.
