Australian Schapelle Leigh Corby has received an additional 6-month sentence reduction from what was originally a 20-year sentence for smuggling 4.3 kilograms of marijuana into Indonesia in 2004.

According to, it is now estimated that Australian woman will end her sentence on March 24, 2017 and may be allowed to stay outside the Kerobokan prisons walls on a conditional release prior to that date.

Gusti Ngurah Wiratna, the chief warden at the prison, confirmed that Corby has received a total of 24 month and 30 days remission since her initial incarceration.

Under a law passed in 2006, sentence reductions for narcotic offenders must be submitted for approval by the Minister of Justice and Human Rights.

The most recent round of sentence reductions, timed to coincide with Indonesian National Independence Day on August 17, 2012, also included a 6-month sentence reduction for Bali Nine member Renae Lawrence, the 7th reduction totaling, on a cumulate basis,  34 months and 30 days from her original sentence of 20 years in prison. Prison officials say Renae’s revised release date is now December 5, 2021.

Lawrence has also been recommended to obtain an additional remission of 1/3 from her remissions to date in acknowledgement of lead role in work teams at the prison.

A total of 166 prisoners received sentence reductions at the Kerobokan prison on August 17th with 15 prisoners released and allowed to resume life outside the prison.

With the announcement of the sentence cuts, the Kerobokan prison also held traditional games and celebrations for prisoners to mark Indonesian Independence Day.
