  • Let her come home, she is innocent! She has suffered enough.

    • If they don't bring her home soon, she is going to die. She is in a terrible state. It is THAT simple.

      A sentence cut is useless unless it is 14 years, as she won't hang on.

      If she dies, it will be a shameful stain on two countries

      • Schapelle needs to come home, an innocent woman should not be sitting in an Indonesian prison for crimes she did not commit...release Schapelle

        • This is an unsubstantiated rumour at this stage. Even if it is true, a sentence reduction will not save Schapelle, unless it is a 13 year reduction. She has already received 1 year in reductions, and has served almost 6 years. She needs to be released within months if she is going to survive. Enough is enough, she has served enough time for a crime she did not commit.

          There is no requirement under Indonesia's clemency laws for Schapelle to admit guilt in order to receive a pardon.

          • Please let this be true and may this poor woman be freed immediately and returned to her family in Australia so she can be healed. Her suffering is intolerable and unacceptable. Please let her go home asap.

            • Nothing short of a 15 year reduction will work. Anything short of that is a death sentence for Schapelle. Shame on both Australia and Indonesia for this travesty of justice!

              • I hope the sentence is cut enough for her to leave Bali. Talk about a hell of holiday! I hope the Indonesian president shows great mercy for Schapelle, and that she can start rebuilding her life. The sooner the better!

                • There was not enough evidence to convict Schappelle at all. It was only heresay, and the hard evidence was destroyed by the Indonesians. No DNA, fingerprints, no source, all destroyed! Australia doesn't want to threaten our "friendship" with Indonesia, so she has been left to rot in gaol. She should be freed.

                  • Even if she actually is "guilty", no one should spend 20 years in prison over a plant that grows naturally all over Indonesia. Come on...who are they protecting?

                    • It is amazing to me that this women is still locked in a putrid cell. The crime she us acused of commiting is without motive and the case against her without evidence. Polititians in both country should stop trying to save face and instead save this woman's life.
