Reports emerging out of Indonesia this afternoon indicate that convicted Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has threatened to commit suicide. Indonesian officials visiting the Kuta residence in which Corby currently is staying with her family say she lunged for a knife with the apparent intention to harm herself.
“I can’t tell someone’s intention, but what I saw in front of me was that she tried to commit suicide,” said head of the corrections division of the Bali justice office, Sunar Agus, one of the officials present at the time. “She took a knife, but the family stopped her and the parole officer stopped her.”
The report comes with mounting speculation authorities are almost certainly considering revoking her parole following what the Indonesian public considers an affront on their legal system after the Corby family flirted with breaching the conditions of her parole by openly discussing details concerning her arrest and incarceration in a documentary which aired on Channel Seven last weekend.
