(2/9/2014)

The Australian media – described in some quarters as poised for a feeding frenzy – spent an entire weekend parked outside the gates of Bali’s Kerobokan Prison awaiting the release on parole of convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Leigh Corby.

Early on Monday, February 10, 2014, Corby was shuffled past reporters and into a waiting van to bring her to State Prosecutor's Office in Denpasar to complete the paperwork that will set her free on on a leash until July 2017 when her parole period end.

With some Indonesian legislators calling for Corby’s release after nine years in prison be delayed due to the current poor state of relations between Indonesian and Australia, the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights has taken pains to say the decision to grant parole was not a political decision and based solely on the Australian woman’s fulfillment of the substantive and administrative requirements.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Amir Syamsuddin, told the press on Friday, February 7, 2014: “These are rights stipulated in government regulations and various government rules. Therefore, in my capacity as Minister, (it’s my job) to enforce the law. Indonesia remains committed to the impartial application of the law, especially as it relates to the granting of parole.”

Corby’s release on parole is just one among 1,291 prisoners being granted similar parole.

Although the Minister has signed the formal certificate of parole the week before, Corby remained in prison in Bali until Monday when a hard copy of the parole order was delivered to Bali prison officials.

Schapelle Corby must remain in Bali, reporting to police on a regular basis, until July 2017 when her period of parole ends and she wlll likely deported from the Country.

She will spend her parole in a Balinese compound occupied by her sister, Mercedes and her Balinese husband in Kuta.
