オーストラリア 「真犯人はそっちで見つけてくれ」、コービーさん弁護チーム

fury_001麻薬密輸ので20年の判決を受けたシャペル・コービー(Schapelle Corby)さんの弁護チームは

①コービーさんの荷物にマリファナを入れた人間 と ②そのマリファナの持ち主

つまり真犯人を見つけてインドネシアに(強制的に)送るようにとオーストラリア政府に要求しました。

これは複数の重罪で服役中のジョン・フォードの「"コービーさんのバッグに大麻を入れた"と別の囚人が話しているのを聞いた」という証言に基づくものです。

政府はこの要求を一蹴。
オーストラリア紙、"The Age"はこれを「非現実的な要求」と。
「クイーンズランド警察も連邦警察もこれらの人間が存在する証拠は見つけていない」

”『コービーさんを支援する、必要なものは何でも与える』とオーストラリア政府は言ったのに!”
とコービーさん弁護側。

"unrealistic request" (The Age)

Corby lawyers want cash, a culprit

Schapelle Corby's Indonesian lawyers appear to have based their hopes for winning an appeal against her 20-year drug conviction on an unrealistic request.

It seems they want the Federal Government to find the person they claim is the real owner of the drugs.

Sources told The Sunday Age that letters sent by Corby's team to Justice Minister Chris Ellison had also asked for substantial financial assistance on top of the $100,000 already given.

One of the letters, signed by defence team co-ordinator Vasu Rasiah, asks the Government to "produce the owner of the marijuana", and to "produce the person who put the drugs in Corby's bag".

Sources said the request was "not realistic", as an investigation by Queensland police and the federal police had failed to find any evidence to support the existence of either person.

Tensions have also flared in the Corby camp between the Perth QC, Mark Trowell - recommended by the Government to help - and the Indonesian team.

Mr Trowell said yesterday he had been handed an unsigned "draft" letter as he got on the plane to leave Bali last Monday after visiting Corby in jail, but said it was not in a form he could give to the Government.

"It was on the eve of a long weekend, and the appeal is due to be lodged on Tuesday," he told The Sunday Age. "I expressed my frustration with the slowness of it to Vasu.

"As yet, I've not seen any grounds of appeal, nor have I seen an English translation of the judges' decision or a transcript of the trial."

Corby's lawyers have also asked the Government to help them bring to Bali the airport staff who were working on October 8 last year, the day she was arrested.

They have also asked for the names of baggage handlers on duty in Sydney and Brisbane.

Among other requests, they want closed-circuit TV film from customs, Qantas and the airports, and the baggage weights of Corby's luggage.

They have also asked for a copy of the secret customs report leaked two weeks ago that said baggage handlers with high-security clearance were involved in airport drug smuggling.

One letter from lawyer Lily Lubis arrived at Senator Ellison's office last Wednesday, and the second letter, from Mr Rasiah, arrived two days later.

Senator Ellison has told Ms Lubis that the Government would assist where possible, and indicated he was likely to support any request from the Indonesian Government to bring airport staff to Bali to testify.

The Government arranged in March for a Victorian prisoner, John Patrick Ford, to go to Bali. He had claimed to know who owned the drugs, and said Corby was an innocent victim of a drug-smuggling syndicate.

Senator Ellison said customs did not have any tapes of Corby, but he had asked them to check again.

In relation to the secret customs report, he said it was classified, but a private briefing would be given to Mr Trowell.

Corby was arrested last year at Bali airport after 4.1 kilograms of marijuana was found in her bodyboard bag. She is appealing against the conviction, and the prosecution is also asking for the sentence to be longer.

どうも。自分のブログに「この件に関しては、今回の判決が事件の終わりではないので、今後とも注意深くニュースを追い、日本での報道がない場合にはまとめの投稿をアップしていこうと思います」と書いておきながら、その後の経過を投稿していない、ヘタレなきむらです。
在豪州のきむらがこのていたらくなのに、タイの地から事件を追い続けているうらしまさんの真摯な姿勢に感服いたします。(←マジレスです)
それにしても。
一体、この事件はどうなるのでしょうか。豪州はこれに加えて「中国外交官亡命事件」もメディアをにぎわしています。そのせいか、ダウナー外相の顔をしょっちゅう見かけるような。豪州の外務能力が問われる今日この頃です。

きむらさん
ありがとうございます。
なんか照れますね。
でもこの事件には本当に興味があります。
なにかいろいろなことがコービーさん事件には含まれているような気がして。
オーストラリアは多事多難。
ダウナー外相も大変ですよね。
