Channel Seven News cites two sources, one from within the jail, who say Corby has begun the parole process and if it’s approved she could be back in Australia within months.

The prison source, 7News says, wished Corby luck as they gave her the paperwork that could potentially lead to her freedom.

The network was also told that parole officers had visited Schapelle’s Bali-based sister Mercedes, so says their mother Roseleigh.

Stories about Schapelle’s imminent release are hardly new, while her regular applications for early release from her 20-year sentence for trying to import 4.1kg of cannabit in 2004 have been turned down – although its length has received small reductions.

However, 7News says the prison confirmed the visit of parole officers to Kerobokan.
