Schapelle Corby arrives in Australia after last-minute flight change to avoid media

Schapelle Corby arrives in Australia after last-minute flight change to avoid media

Now she is back on Australian soil, Corby can speak freely but not for profit, with proceed of crime laws meaning she cannot sell her story.

Corby is expected to board a flight out of Denpasar at 10.10pm, arriving in Brisbane on Sunday morning.

She was taken in a convoy from her Bali villa to the airport, to catch a flight to Brisbane.

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

Corby made a late switch to travel with Malindo Air, not Virgin Australia as originally expected.

Twelve years after being sentenced to 20 years in prison, nearly 10 years spent in jail, and more than three years on parole, the 39-year-old emerged from her Kuta home on Saturday afternoon to take her first steps back to Australia.

Corby's sister Mercedes was on the flight with her, and they were quietly whisked away into a convoy of black vans, other passengers having to wait until the drama was over before disembarking.

A massive media contingent staked out Brisbane Airport anticipating her arrival.

After weeks of media speculation and waiting, her departure proved swift, ingenious, at times comical and was done with much fanfare.

Schapelle Corby leaves her home in Bali before being deported. In the end, she was granted clemency in 2012 by President Yudhoyono, cutting her sentence by five years and allowing her to be granted parole the following year.

Golfer Simon Dyson ready for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth

Samsung to unveil world's first 'stretchable' display panel

Corby was photographed clutching a handbag emblazoned with a photo of missing Australian toddler William Tyrell who disappeared from Kendall in NSW in 2014.

Now a free woman, the 39-year-old who once described the media as exploitative began posting images on Instagram on Saturday.

She bid farewell to Bali with a photo of her dogs Luna and May, posted from her Kuta home in the hours before she left.

It is also understood that Mercedes Corby is at it again - trying to sell pictures of her sister Schapelle, and an interview, to media outlets. In a postmodern twist, the entire clan turned the cameras back on the media scrum. As media jostled with police, their brother Michael filmed the circus atop of the villa's gate, while wearing the mask of an old man.

He was surrounded by a media pack when he emerged, and declared Corby fit.

At the Bali parole office Bali justice chief Kompyang Adnyana proclaimed: "She is now free". "If it shines you they can see you with their lights". "But I felt that Corby has the chance to fix herself", Wiswantan said.

Corby, 35, was released on parole last month after spending nine years in a Bali prison on charges of smuggling 4.2 kilograms (9 pounds) of marijuana into Indonesia in 2005. The actions in tthe lead up to her release gave a very strong impression that this was a special case.

Mercedes Corby arrives at the International Airport in Bali, on Friday, May 12, 2017.

The convicted drugs smuggler managed to get off her flight and is on her way home with family.

He said the overwhelming response by authorities for Corby was at the behest of the Australian Government in Bali. "But as of May 27, I think there is no problem".
