On the 9th of October, we discovered that the ex-Centrelink employee, Natalie Pearson, lied on Today Tonight in the follow up to the Powers interview.
Pearson said that Schapelle was collecting Sickness Benefit for drug psychosis. In a Queensland court she admitted she had never read any of Schapelle's medical reports. Pearson was fined $1000 and placed on a three-year good behaviour bond.
"This was a trying time for Ms Corby and her family," Magistrate Terry Duroux said. "They had already gone through enough and didn't need this sort of thing being aired nationally throughout Australia."
Defence lawyer Debbie Marinov said Pearson had been pressured into doing the Today Tonight interview, even though she "knew it was the wrong thing to do".
The lies unravel.
