I'm Indonesian but it is true that I got my tears trickling down a bit for Schapelle after the verdict was read. For 20 years in Bali prison is something that I can't imagine for such a sexy and gorgeous girl like her. But apart from that, I believe that she is innocent and doesn't deserve such kind of punishment at all.

Just say if she could be guilty, 20 years is her quite lucky verdict as the death penalty or life sentence is the normal options for the judges. I again can't imagine if the prosecutors would appeal for the worst scenario later on.

Chief prosecutor Ida Bagus Wiswantanu said he would probably appeal if the sentence was 20 years unless the judges had good legal reasons for a sentence of less than life imprisonment. (link)

The issue on drugs in Indonesia has been prejudiced as part of foreign intelligence strategy to decrease the productivity of society. Most of middle class parents have been telling this prejudice to their children. Obviously, most of them tend to blame foreigners for deliberately transferring such drugs culture to the Indonesian society. That kind of rumour has actually spread among Indonesian parents after the Vietnam War relating to the Air America activity.

The Nugan Hand Bank of Sydney was a CIA bank in all but name. Among its officers were a network of US generals, admirals and CIA men, including fommer CIA Director William Colby, who was also one of its lawyers. With branches in Saudi Arabia, Europe, Southeast Asia, South America and the U.S., Nugan Hand Bank financed drug trafficking, money laundering and international arms dealings. In 1980, amidst several mysterious deaths, the bank collapsed, $50 million in debt. (link)

Schapelle, I believe, is only a victim of the bigger ring of drugs trafficking in South East Asia, which, I think, has well been organised and supported by some bad people.

How about if we try to put ourselves in the judge's position? Schapelle was caught for having 4 kg of Marijuana in her bag. What would you do if you were the judge? Would you free Schapelle because she looked innocent? Because she cried? Because she said she was innocent? What made you believe that she was not part of drug traffickers? I feel so sorry for her and just like you, I do not know what really happened. All I am saying is we can't judge someone by their faces or reactions. We don't know whether she's innocent or not.

Dudette, can you imagine a person who might tell lie for a long period of time? Schapelle hasn't admitted that from the first place. Even in front of exclusive interview with a bunch of big media since Oct 04. It needs a special skill to keep telling lies in public and she doesn't seem like a person who can do that.
