The soap opera surrounding this poor woman has reopened with the first day in court of her sister (Mercedes Corby) who is claiming she was defamed by a program aired by the ‘Seven Network’ here in Australia.
The network aired a series of programmes in which a ‘friend’ called Jody did a ‘tell all expose’ on Jody and her supposed links with drug dealing etc.
I’m not going into the entire proceedings which descended into farce within minutes after an onlooker began yelling inside the court, but the evidence so far has been quite enlightening… if you’re interested in that side of the case.
Trouble is that no matter what happens in court none of this will help bring Schapelle back to Australia! She is stuck in Bali in a hell-hole of a prison with no prospect of getting out in the next 20 years.
There’ll be more on this later no doubt, but the best that can be said of the case so far is that while it presents an unedifying picture of life at the Corby household… it doesn’t mean Mercedes wasn’t defamed… or more importantly that Schapelle had anything to do with the drugs that were found in her ‘boogie-board case’.
