CHANNEL NINE PREPARES TO PUT A FEW MORE BOOTS INTO THE CORBY FAMILY! SHAME!!!
On discovering that Channel Nine is making a Mini-Series on the Schapelle Corby case, based on the discredited book by Eammon Duff, Sins of the Father, I wrote the following comment:
Channel Nine is doing nothing but harm by using Eammon Duff’s book as the basis for its mini-series. The book was written as a vehicle for defaming the Corby family & achieving maximum controversy & therefore maximum sales. The contentions regarding Ms Corby’s father having a criminal record involving drugs is a lie. The Queensland Police Service presented the family with a formal certificate of confirmation that no criminal history is to be found on Mr Corby. The fact that these false accusations were made after Mr Corby had died & therefore could not refute them himself, is frankly disgraceful. Even a fairly cursory examination of the documents pertaining to this case reveals Ms Corby’s obvious innocence as well as the total failure & intransigence of successive Australian Governments to defend a citizen if it means having to make the embarrassing admission that organised crime has had free reign at our airports & docks for decades. No-one smuggles dope INTO Bali, where it costs one tenth of the Australian price! The Media should be clamouring for her immediate release.
The Australian Government is determined not to lose face to Indonesia, even at the risk of a young Australian woman’s life. Shame! Shame! Shame!
