Expendable Project orchestrated by vindictive cyber-bullies
A malicious campaign based on endless conspiracy theories, endorsed by Rosleigh Corby, was launched against a number of Government and non-government agencies, high profile community leaders, human rights groups and the FPSS.
The Expendable Project is endorsed by UFO researcher Diane Frola and created by a Mr. Steve Addison from the UK (according to Ch10 news) and links to "People for Schapelle Corby Facebook" operated by Kim Bax. To outsiders they are dubbed "E-pottymouths' because their language is frequently vitriolic.

A cohort of pro-Corby shock troops who link heavily to Expendable trawls the internet for mentions of her name, then bully people who deviate from their view. Queensland woman, Diane Frola, the co-founder of the Australian UFO Research Network, has uploaded two videos to it. According to her, governments are suppressing evidence that prove both Corby's innocence and the existence of UFOs.
Kay Danes is a woman who should, by rights, be embraced by the pro-Corby lobby. She has spent 10 years advocating through her non-profit organisation for human rights, including those of prisoners in foreign jails. It is work for which she recently received an Order of Australia Medal. She herself was tortured in a Laotian prison in 2000.
But on the online pro-Corby forums, she has been subject to abuse and ridicule by what she describes as the Expendable ''cult''. Her crime is to have pointed out online that their arguments and documents do not constitute proof that a court could accept.
''I have never said a bad word about Schapelle. I have only ever pointed out some very real facts,'' Danes says.
The result, she says, has been ''stalking … intense cyber-bullying, harassment, character assassination and threats''.
She has at times reported Expendable posters to police for threatening behaviour.
Danes says she is sympathetic to Corby herself, and her long prison ordeal, but ''a group of misguided supporters … have hurt Schapelle's support base far more than they have helped''.
Behind the Scenes
Steve Addison (prior story here) created the Expendable Project according to Channel Ten News (Story here). He and his researchers post online under false IP addresses, fake email accounts and pseudonyms, they say to protect their identity from Government attacks. There is validity to their claims which they refuse to lodge so called evidence through a proper legal process. Particularly, all reporting to the UN should be in accordance with UN Reporting practices but they are seemingly ignorant of the process. This means that for any reports to be accepted and investigated, they need to disclose the identity of the person submitting the report and direct contact details. Anonymous reports will automatically be rejected.

The Plight: Schapelle Corby
THIS INFORMATION IS PROVIDED AS A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD
AND IS NOT PART OF ANY ACTIVE CAMPAIGN.
Schapelle Leigh Corby (born 10 July 1977) is an Australian woman convicted and imprisoned for the importation of 4.2kg into Bali, Indonesia. She was sentenced 20 years on 27 May 2005 and currently serves her sentence in Kerobokan prison, Bali.
Indonesian Customs Officers gave testimony at her trial that Schapelle Corby admitted the drugs were hers, a claim she vehemently denies. Since a prima facie was effectively established, the burden shifted to the defence to counter the prosecution case.
The case proceeded in accordance with Indonesian Law and concluded with Corby receiving a 20 year prison term. She remains incarcerated in Indonesia, her legal appeals have been exhausted, her legal Defence team were unable to present substantive evidence in an extraordinary legal appeal to have her conviction overturned.
Schapelle's early release hopes were dashed when the Indonesian authorities rejected her appeal for parole.
09 Feb 2014: Schapelle Corby's parole has been signed and she is due to be released next week. She will be required to remain in Bali until 2017.
10 Feb 2014 - Schapelle Corby has been released from Kerobokan Prison on parole. We wish her well and hope that she is afforded some privacy so that she can recover from her ordeal.
