However, these events did not occur in a vacuum. They occurred within a wider context, in which motive and intent were pivotal, in which previous behavioral patterns were of fundamental importance, and in which the identity of influencers and beneficiaries was central.

It demonstrates that in this quagmire of political and commercial malversation, Schapelle Corby never had a chance.
