Informant RI 719 ('Tom'): The Indemnity From Prosecution

The indemnity from prosecution, for baggage handler informant RI 719 ('Tom'), was issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions on 21st February 2006:

Tom was also allowed to keep over $750,000 of the money he had accrued from the sale of cocaine.

It is alleged that this generosity also helped to secure his silence on a range of matters, including the events at Sydney Airport on 8th October 2004, the day on which Schapelle Corby flew to Bali.

During the case in which he gave evidence, he was also prevented from expanding upon the involvement of police officers:
