Senator Bob Carr, Julia Gillard’s Foreign Minister


Foreign Minister Bob Carr: An open letter to you Dear Mr. Carr, this letter’s in the press because you’ve ignored all private correspondence . . . Bob, as you well know, minutes from a high level 17 Oct 2005 NSW Crime Commission meeting prove corrupt airline staff were ferrying marijuana between domestic air terminals (heading to Sydney Airport), the exact day Schapelle flew. They also prove the criminal (William Moss), who admitted he was part of the insider plot, was telling the truth. He said he was asked to pick up the drugs from the airport, but the job was cancelled because the stash had accidentally flown on to Bali. The rest is history. You’re also well acquainted with the news Schapelle’s bag was illegally diverted from the required x-ray screening after she checked it in - as well as the fact the

It’s time for a Royal Commission . . . see for the truth about the corruption that sent an innocent woman to hell

baggage handlers “Dealing” with her luggage had long criminal histories, and imported 200 kilos of cocaine into Australia in 2004 (using the bags of the unwitting public to ferry the drug). Strangely, none of them were arrested, charged or jailed for that - and Julia Gillard’s Minister for Justice (Jason Clare MP), is refusing to say why. However, it’s also a matter of public record these baggage handlers were in a criminal syndicate with a director of Macquarie Bank, an Ian Robert Chalmers. At the time Schapelle flew, Macquarie Bank owned Sydney Airport Corporation - and you yourself have earnt huge sums from Macquarie, through lucrative “Consultancies.” But now Bob, you’re point blank refusing to convey this hard evidence of Schapelle’s innocence to the Indonesian Government - plus you’ve gutlessly remained silent about this foreign power’s gross discrimination against an Australian. The highest sentence ever handed out to an

Indonesian national (in Indonesia), for possession of a similar amount of marijuana is just 5 years - and Australian press reports in 2010 told us only 13 out of 70 Bali Bomb (& Jakarta Embassy blast), terrorists were still in prison. To pile on the insults, key Bali Bomber Umar Patek was sentenced to just 20 years in 2012 (for helping to slaughter over 200 people and injure many more). This is the same as Schapelle’s original sentence for 4.2 kilos of marijuana. Your complete silence on that was sickening. Could we please have your response and action on these serious matters as soon as possible. It’s well past time to get off of your extremely well salaried behind to help an ordinary working class Aussie. Isn’t that what you’re paid to do out of our tax dollars? Or are you just hoping Schapelle will come home in box, so she can’t tell Australians the truth about the sickening abuses she endured in a filthy, vicious and corrupt foreign prison? Regards, People for Schapelle

“SEVERAL customs officers and baggage handlers suspected of being involved in serious corruption continue to work at Sydney Airport, it's been reported. The suspected corrupt staff were able to work together to move bags filled with contraband past security checks at the airport when they were rostered on the same shift, according to a Fairfax investigation.”
