Schapelle's condition continues to deteriorate, as she desperately hangs on for the result of her clemency appeal.
The recent article in New Idea magazine provided yet another illustration of her day to day struggle for survival. The following are extracts from the issue published in March 2011:
A cell mate's graphic description of Schapelle digging the cell floor with her bare hands to get to her dead father shames humanity. Yet two governments turn a blind eye, in full knowledge of the situation.
Both are in receipt of a detailed psychiatric report by one of Australia's leading psychiatrists. His diagnosis was stark, warning that she was hanging on by a thread. But these were words which neither government wanted to hear, so they they simply ignored them. Schapelle has continued to deteriorate exactly as diagnosed.
The following description from Schapelle.Net includes first hand accounts from recent visitors:
In a similar vein, Viktor Eldritch recently posted the following words:
"The grave reality for a desperately sick woman could not be further from their collective consciousness. The gut wrenching horror of Schapelle Corby's existence is as likely to occur to them as the stark truth that she is certainly innocent. It is as distant in their thoughts as the travesty of the show trial, or the unspeakable mind breaking terror that Schapelle Corby has lived for approaching seven years.
This national soap is real life unremitting torment for the victim. She really has lost her sanity as a result of the injustice, trauma and sheer brutality of her situation. She really has been deserted by a government obsessed with appeasement, and equally desperate to cover systemic corruption within its own institutions.
She really is the ultimate political punch bag, already destroyed and beaten almost to death by two complicit nations."
Schapelle's life is in the balance. Saving it is down to us:
“All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing”
We cannot fail her. We must not.
