Thanks for confirming my suspiscions that you have SFA experience with the Indonesian legal system, police, or society in general.
You don't have to go far to find a more corrupt and base nation (just hop across the water to Malaysia), and Corby is guily of only one thing:
Not having the street smarts to say to the customs driods who fingered her for the dope-smuggling:
"Ok, clearly I didn't lock my bags, very silly of me. What sort of donation do I need to make to clear this up?"

The bribes that you have to pay are so small since the wages they earn are very low.
I assume she would have been travelling on an allowance of 20kg of checked baggage. So even if each individual bag was not recorded, I would expect her total checked baggage weight would have been recorded at checkin. But since this has not been mentioned anywhere that I have seen, I can only assume that the checkin agent weight it, accepted she was not over her allownace and just tagged it? Is that what happens?
They are recording these weights at the moment.ronone69 said:... Qantas (as with most airlines) does not always record the weight of bags - whether you are over 20kg or not. There was a group of them travelling together. Likelyhood is all the luggage was put through together. ...
