Corby's lawyers to offer new evidence
From: By Cindy Wockner in Denpasar, October 26, 2005

LAWYERS for convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby will appeal to Indonesia's highest court next week.

Lawyer Erwin Siregar notified the High Court in Jakarta yesterday that they would file a formal appeal and ask judges to break with tradition and hear new evidence.

Corby's legal team would request a tele-conference to hear new testimony from witnesses including former Bali drug squad chief Colonel Bambang Sugiarto, as well as the alleged Australian gangland drug smuggler they believe was behind the marijuana stash found in Corby's luggage.

"[Sugiarto] must be questioned because he is the one who said that it is difficult to check the evidence because it has been contaminated," Mr Siregar said.

He said the defence team would also query police on 0.6kg of marijuana which lawyers believe has gone missing from an original stash of 4.1kg.

Meanwhile, Adelaide man Graham Clifford Payne will face court next week on possession charges that could see him jailed for 20 years.
