She would be required to live with Mercedes and her Balinese husband Wayan Widyartha and would report to one of the three female officials who would become her parole officer.
Schapelle was sentenced to 20 years jail in the notoriously violent and overcrowded Korobokan prison for smuggling 4.2kg of cannabis into Indonesia in 2004 however she denies any wrong doing.
