Schapelle Corby: the hidden truth

Schapelle Leigh Corby is serving a 20-year sentence for the importation of 4.2 kg (9.3 lb) of cannabis into Bali, Indonesia. She was convicted and sentenced in Bali on 27 May 2005 by the Denpasar (Indonesia) District Court. On appeal, her conviction and sentence were confirmed with finality by the Indonesian Supreme Court. No further legal manoeuvres on her part are possible; she may petition for clemency from Indonesia's president, but would have to admit guilt to do so.

Corby has maintained from the time of her arrest that the drugs were planted in her boogie board bag and that she did not know about them.Her trial and conviction were a major focus of attention for the Australian media. Her current release date, with remissions, is 12 April 2024.

In June 2008 in Australia, the Nine Network broadcast a two-part documentary called Schapelle Corby: The Hidden Truth. An edited version of the documentary was renamed Ganja Queen and aired on HBO in North and South America, before being released on DVD.
