She would have been found guilty in Australia too, but the sentence is overkill imo :/

There are so many rumours and mis-facts that it is hard to see what was really going on.

With the same evidence, she would have been found guilty. We have the same notion of reverse onus of proof in Australia, so since the prosecution presented proof that the drugs were in her posession, it was up to Chapelle's lawyers to prove that they weren't hers. They couldn't do that.

I don't study law but that's straight from a special legal advisor to the Attorney General, so I believe it.

the indonesian justice system used to be modelled off their military "guilty until innocent" system. in 1999 this changed but the same judges are still around. 500/500 guilty verdicts from the last 500 drug hearings over there.

They didn't find her 'guilty', they found her 'one step away from guilty', which is why she didn't get life for drug trafficking...

The thing about 'it wuz in your bag' plus the testimonies of the security staff at the airport saying that she knew the drugs were in her bag incriminated her. Her lawyers had to prove that she didn't know and that therefore the drugs weren't hers. The only help came from a convict (rapist, is it?) who would not have been allowed to testify in an Australian court anyway because he presented pure heresay.

She has been on the edge for the past few weeks, I have a bad feeling that something will happen to her in prison (either being attacked / suicide).

Nice but your assessment is misplaced.

1) They are in Indonesia

2) Indonesia hates drugs more than we do.

3) Their legal system is NOT "guilty until proven innocent". It's the same as ours. Their judgements on providing evidence may be different. This was confirmed by an Indonesian Legal "expert" here in one of the big law firms.

4) And I keep saying this. THE LEGAL SYSTEM AND JUSTICE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER!

It may also have been a bad mistake to ask for pardon before the sentence was actually handed down, too... In the Indonesian judicial system asking for pardon without being convicted is almost equivalent to an admission.


Granted, she probably only did it after the judges had already decided, but still.

Somehow she'll end up in AUS under our jail system or set free. A couple of billion dollars in Aid will shift anyones judgment.....gotta love politics

Appeal will most likely do diddly shit.

Yes, there is a possibility she could come back here to serve her sentence. That would be more "preferable" to being out there I guess.

And ffs TurpS.... skank?

The eye witness account of the security guard was what convinced me. Although i am disturbed they did not handle the evidence properly to attain fingerprints.
