People For Schapelle Corby #Icare4innocentSchapelle

The full story and background here:

On 5th July 2005, the CEO of Sydney Airport Corporation Limited (SACL),
Max Moore-Wilton, sent a note to AFP Commissioner Michael Keelty and
Justice & Customs Minister Christopher Ellison informing them that
Schapelle Corby’s boogie-board bag was the only one not scanned for the
flight to Bali. In other words, that it had been diverted around the
scanning system at Sydney Airport, which clearly indicated that it had
been tampered with. Prime Minister John Howard was informed by Michael
Keelty shortly thereafter. However, instead of providing this vital
evidence to Schapelle Corby, her legal team, or the Bali court, all four
men withheld it.

Four months later, within the Joint
Committee Of Public Accounts And Audit Committee, on Wednesday, 23
November, Head of Group Security for Qantas Airways Ltd, Geoffrey Askew,
acknowledged this state of affairs. The specific exchange is copied
into the above image.

Under pressure from Bronwyn Bishop MP ,
and apparently anxious to pass the buck, Askew volunteered rather more
than was expected: that the ‘problem’ referred to “was not by a Qantas
pass”. In other words, it was perpetrated by someone who was not a
Qantas employee or agent (i.e. someone who was not wearing a Qantas
pass/badge). This statement of fact directly confirms the prior comment,
that Schapelle Corby’s bags were interfered with, but places
responsibility outside the remit of his own employer.

Later in the discussion, Askew goes on to point the finger more clearly at SACL:

[Mr Askew—Well, it is not our baggage system. It is not our security
system. It is the airport operator’s. In this case it is the terminal
operator’s. Our obligation is to present the bag to the
terminal operator. They process the bag, they screen the bag and they hand it back to us for loading. It is their system]

In her overall frustration with Askew’s corporate wriggling, Mrs Bishop
didn’t explore or press this issue further. However, Askew’s statement
not only points the finger squarely at SACL, but indicates that he too
was personally aware that Schapelle Corby’s bag was tampered with and
that this was perpetrated by SACL’s baggage handlers.

Regrettably, this remarkable exchange, including a public admission by a
relevant authority that Schapelle Corby’s luggage was tampered with,
was never reported by the media, and the revelations were never pursued
or investigated further. It was all shoved under the carpet.
The same applies to the many other examples of the withholding of central primary evidence by Australian based parties:

Schapelle Corby, her lawyers, and the Bali court, were repeatedly and
deliberately deprived of the material evidence which would have forced
an acquittal.

Finally, given the Qantas ar$e-covering perpetrated above by our Mr
Askew, it would be remiss not to throw-in something that definitely WAS
“by a Qantas pass”. Here is an example:
Schapelle Corby checked her
bags in underweight, but they were subsequently found to be 5kg
overweight on the Qantas system (which would have carried an excess
charge of $175). This clearly indicated the addition of a significant
weight factor, after the bags left her hands. As above, neither
Schapelle Corby, her legal team, or the Bali court, were ever informed.
Proof of the pudding, in their own submissions and correspondence:
