Officials at Bali’s Kerobokan prison are refuting media reports that 34-year-old Schapelle Corby is mentally disturbed after serving 7-years of a 20-year sentence for attempting to smuggle 4-kilograms of marijuana into Indonesia.

Quoted by, the head of the Kerobokan prison, Gusti Ngurah Wiratna said: “From what I know, when I, in the company of fellow officers, were inspecting the women’s block, Corby looked calm and able to adequately perform daily activities. Our observations were that she can perform normally, such as participating in sports activities with other inmates.”

When asked about reports of a sentence remission for the Australian woman, Wiratna said he had yet to receive any information on that point.

The head of the Bali office of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, Budhi Harmanto, confirmed that his office has yet to receive any information regarding  a request sent to the President urging Corby’s sentence be reduced to 10-years.

“There's no remission of 5 or 10 years for Corby. The (shorter) remission request submitted at Christmas has yet to be answered and may have been refused. As regards remission, we have never been contacted by lawyers or the Australian Embassy, so we know nothing about any remission,” said Harmanto.
