Schapelle Corby’s former lawyer says she was joking when she suggested the convicted drug smuggler would celebrate her release by rolling up a joint and smoking it.
Asked what she thought Corby would do when released, lawyer Kerry Smith-Douglas replied she would celebrate.
“She’ll probably pop a cork of champagne and then roll up a big marijuana joint the size of a cigar and kick back and enjoy herself,” she told the Nine Network.
Asked later on Fairfax Radio if she was serious, Ms Smith-Douglas replied: “No. It was a joke, don’t you have a sense of humour?”
“Get a life. Loosen up. Enjoy a joke.”
Ms Smith-Douglas rejected suggestions Indonesian authorities might take the comments seriously, saying they were ridiculous.
Indonesia’s Justice Minister Amir Syamsuddin said on Wednesday he would make his decision on Friday. – AAP
