Smuggler Corby could leave Indonesia on 27th

    Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby is set to leave Indonesia on May 27.

    Corby was released on parole in 2014 after serving nine years of a two decade sentence for smuggling 4.1kg marijuana into Bali.

    The trial provoked a media frenzy in Australia, with television stations vying for access to her.

    There were accusations of bribery during the trial and years of colourful and contradictory claims and counter claims.

    She has been required to report to parole officers monthly, avoid drugs and not commit any crimes.

    She will be permitted to leave if she meets the requirements of the Bali parole board.

    When released she was expected to live with her sister Mercedes, who is married to a Balinese man, who was her chief sponsor.

    Her sister has since returned to Australia.

    Corby’s step-father, James Kisina, was from Tonga.
