    As Foreighn Minister, when are you going to negotiate a prisoner exchange programme with Indonesia?
    The crew on the assylum seeker boats are poor fisherman, who often dont know what cargo they are transporting until they turn up to the boat.

    Schapelle Corby is innocent and is in immeasurable pain and suffering. Schapelle should be brought back to Australia and given the opportunity to be nursed back to health.

    Both the Australian and Indonesian Governments should be ashamed of themselves for sacrificing an innocent woman’s life for politicial purposes.

    When are you going to negotiate with Indonesia to bring her home?
