Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has been admitted to a Bali hospital suffering from depression.
The 30-year-old has apparently been struggling to come to terms with both personal and legal losses this year.
But a former Australian politician currently visiting Auckland says she should never have been jailed in the first place.
The former foreign Minister of Australia in Auckland today made the controversial claim that Bali authorities jailed the wrong person.
It comes as doctors at Bali's Sang-La hospital await test results into Schapelle Corby's condition.
She was admitted on Friday after reportedly not eating or sleeping for weeks.
Her lawyer says the 30-year-old has been sinking into depression ever since March when a final appeal against her 20-year-jail sentence failed.
Earlier this year she had to deal with the deaths of her father and step father.
Sister Mercedes Corby is back in Bali after her defamation case and has been by her side.
Doctors will not say how long she will need to be in hospital but it could be weeks.
