Updated August 16 2009 – Schapelle Corby has suffered a mental and emotional meltdown or breakdown while in prison. Corby scaled the water tower near her cell block. Prison officers persuaded Corby to climb down for safety reasons.
Mercedes Corby, Schapelle’s sister, has visited her in the Kerobokan Jail. Mercedes said Schapelle was suffering and languishing in prison.
Rosleigh Rose, Schapelle’s mother, has also visited her daughter in Kerobokan Jail.
Schapelle Corby spent one and a half weeks in hospital to recuperate for her mental health.
Indonesian authorities have encouraged Corby by applying for a 4 month reduction from her original 20 year sentence. This is an incentive for good behavior and an act of grace from the country who is celebrating her Independence Day on August 17.
Corby had earlier received 7 months reduction off her jail sentence. If the Indonesian Justice Ministry approves of this year’s slashing of her sentence, Corby wold have a total of 11 months cut off from her original sentence.
Approximately, the ratio is almost 1 year shaved off for every two years of imprisonment. If it continues at this pace, Corby could be freed in less than 20 years. Corby could walk away in another 10 years’ time.
