Christmas sentence cut for Australian drug mule Schapelle Corby
JAKARTA (AFP) - Australian drug trafficker Schapelle Corby has had her sentence in an Indonesian prison cut by two months as part of an annual Christmas remission programme, an official said on Thursday.
Ms Ika Yusanti, the justice ministry prisons spokesman, said she was receiving the reduction for "good behaviour".
However the official was tight-lipped about the 36-year-old's prospects for parole amid speculation she may be released from jail on the resort island of Bali in the near future.
The island's corrections board in August recommended Corby for early release from the notorious Kerobokan jail but the process has been bogged down by bureaucratic wrangling.
