Whilst those behind closed doors are outside the scope of the Expendable mission, those open and in public are not, as they relate to the complicity and disregard of the Australian government. The most obvious of these involve the Australian media.
The conditions which Schapelle Corby has endured are terrible enough, with lurid descriptions of squalor, overcrowding, and overbearing heat, common on a number of websites, and in books such as Hotel Kerobokan. However, Schapelle Corby endures significantly more than this. She has suffered a sustained series of individual abuses at the hands of the local and prison authorities, and the Australian media.
