Schapelle Corby released from prison in Bali

Schapelle Corby released from prison in Bali
After nine years in Bali's Kerobokan jail, convicted Australian drug-smuggler Schapelle Corby has been released on parole.

The 36-year-old Queenslander was rushed into a waiting van while swarms of media shouted questions at her.

Corby was unrecognisable under a hat and sarong, tied as a veil, as she made her way through the pack, refusing to utter a word.

Over in Queensland, Corby’s mother, Rosleigh Rose, was overcome with emotion, crying as she celebrated her daughter’s release with champagne and laughter.

“It was just beautiful to see my beautiful Schapelle come out from those doors,” Rose told the Seven Network.

Released on parole, Corby can not leave Indonesia until her sentence is completed in 2017. She is expected to live with her sister Mercedes and brother-in-law Wayan Widyarth in a family compound near Kuta Beach, and will be ‘pulled’ back into jail if she violates her parole in any way.
