Schapelle Corby will be expected to behave impeccably after she is paroled from her Kerobokan prison nightmare, but could struggle more with scrutiny from Australian media than Indonesian authorities.
That is the view of Professor Jeff Lewis, and Indonesian expert and Corby family friend who was in court on the day Corby was jailed in 2005, and has stayed in contact with the family since.
After the paperwork for Corby's release is finalised, Professor Lewis said the 36-year-old could expect similar parole conditions as might be imposed by an Australian court, including requirements to report weekly to authorities, to find work and stay out of trouble.
Having spoken to Corby's sister Mercedes last week, Professor Lewis said Corby's family were well prepared to meet those conditions.
What is less certain is how Corby will cope with the media gaze set to be trained on her as she begins life outside the cell in which she has spent the past nine years.
"The major challenge will be the media scrutiny and the large amount of interest in her on the outside. She is going to be out and about right in the heart of the tourist area," Professor Lewis said.
"How she will cope with that remains to be seen."
Professor Lewis said reports Corby may even have to adhere to a dress code as part of her parole were unlikely, as those rules only usually related to Muslims released from the jail.
The professor at RMIT's School of Media and Communication, who has conducted research on Bali and Indonesia's justice system over many years, last met Corby inside the jail late last year.
He said then she seemed to be coping well - but he still held some fears for the future.
"There will be the initial euphoria, and the burst of emotions which come with that," Professor Lewis said.
"She wants to have a family, and live a normal life after ten years. But she has to cope with her mental health issues, and that will be significant."
