Schapelle Corby set to return to Australia amid tight security

When the parole officer said, you must be happy about going home tomorrow, Corby didn't give any response.

Corby landed at Brisbane International Airport with her sister Mercedes Corby and a bodyguard just after 5 a.m., Australian media reported.

But then she boarded a flight on airline Malindo Air at 10:00 pm (1400 GMT).

"Schapelle Corby's name has been famous for 12 or 13 years, she's a brand, there's no doubt about it".

Corby was escorted by officials to a Virgin flight to Brisbane on Saturday, May 27.

The media - so loathed by Schapelle Corby during her dark days in jail - got its comeuppance on Saturday, with the convicted drug smuggler hoodwinking it to the end with a canny flight swap.

He said that when he asked Corby where she would fly tomorrow, she said: "Can go to Perth, can go to Brisbane, or wherever". Passengers arrived at the gate to find no officials and it wasn't until they scanned the departures board did they realised what had happened.

Her security team also made a last-minute switch to put her on the Malindo Air flight.

"I'd often imagine my future dream home, picturing myself lazing back on a cosy couch in my large lounge room, watching a pub-size flat-screen TV or cooking in my big kitchen", she said in the book My Story while in Kerobokan. "What for? She looked fine, still the same as I saw her the last time at the jail". And it seems that Corby was so very close to never coming home at all.

I was a thief. "I'm not surprised at the ruling", Cooley said Friday. "There is no rhyme or reason or sense". Now 32, Malvo is serving multiple life sentences at Red Onion State Prison in Virginia, a supermax prison.

The Australian interest in Corby, which began with her arrest, intensified into an obsession during her trial.

"After the process was completed, Corby immediately departed to the airport to be repatriated to Australia", said Sampurno.

"Thank you for all the love and support everybody x", she wrote.

One user commented, "You're an incredibly strong, courageous woman".

The family called for privacy as the convicted drug smuggler tries to settle back into life in Queensland. "We just focus on the area, so there is no vulnerability, insecurity or any security problem in the area" Mr Sumara said.

They claimed that McNeil misrepresented its compliance federal manufacturing rules and the quality of its over-the-counter drugs. The alleged quality control lapses resulted in drug recalls for McNeil brands such as Tylenol , Motrin , Benadryl and Sudafed.

Corby also needs to sign documents from the prosecutor's office, but it is unclear if that will happen at the airport.

"We had no prior knowledge of Schapelle's intention to use William's image in this way".

Her final day on the Indonesian resort island was a blaze of media attention, as she was hustled out of a villa with her face hidden under a scarf, and then chased by a huge pack of journalists before boarding a flight home.

It was not clear if she was heading to her mother Rosleigh Rose's home in Loganlea, south of Brisbane, or to her sister's residence in the Gold Coast.
