It’s more than 12 years since she was first arrested for attempting to smuggle 4.1kg of cannabis into Bali.
Now, after serving out her sentence Schapelle Corby is set to return to Australian soil in style.
According to 9News, the 39-year-old will fly business class to Brisbane with her sister Mercedes after she is officially deported from Indonesia on Saturday.
The publication reports that the pair will be accompanied on the flight by celebrity bodyguard John McLeod, who also includes Roger Federer and Lady Gaga on his impressive list of high-profile clients.
The news comes just one day after prison, parole and immigration officials met to ensure Corby’s departure would be following official procedures.
Speaking with News Corp, Nguarah Rai immigration chief Ari Budijanto said that despite her ‘celebrity’ status, Corby will be given no special treatment and will be dealt with in the same way as any other prisoner.
It is believed that she will be banned from ever returning to Indonesia, leaving behind her local boyfriend Ben Panangian, whom she first met in 2006.
“I will make a recommendation to my Director-General to put her on the blacklist for life,” Budijanto said.
“I don’t want my children, my family, my brother, my neighbour becoming a narcotics victim.”
“This is a lesson for everybody who tries to bring narcotics to Indonesia.”
