Five-Month Remission on the Cards for Schapelle Corby...
It is expected that Schapelle will be granted a 5-month remission on her sentence. The head of Kerobokan Prison, Siswanto, has said that he has sent his recommendations to the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights stating that Ms. Corby has been well-behaved and has not violated any prison rules. It is usual practice that the Ministry rubber stamps the recommendations of the heads of the prisons making the recommendations.
In other words, it would seem that Ms. Corby will be five months closer to freedom within days. If her clemency appeal is successful, then it is likely that she will be significantly closer to freedom still.
