Schapelle Corby's jail sentence cut

THE Indonesian government has confirmed that Australian drug trafficker Schapelle Corby has been granted a five-year cut to her sentence.

Corby was jailed for 20 years in 2004 for attempting to smuggle 4.1 kilograms of marijuana into Bali in a bodyboard bag. She appealed to clemency from Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono more than two years ago.

Foreign Minister Bob Carr issued a brief statement tonight welcoming the decision.

"The Australian Government has consistently supported Ms Corby's application for clemency on humanitarian grounds," he said.

"I welcome the Indonesian President's decision to grant this reduction."
