Drug smuggler Renae Lawrence returns to Australia after 13 years in a Bali jail

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Australian heroin courier Renae Lawrence arrived in Australia on Thursday (November 22) after being released from an Indonesian prison on Wednesday (November 21), the first of the so-called Bali Nine drug smuggling ring to gain freedom after the execution of the two ring leaders strained ties between the countries.

Lawrence, 41, arrived at Brisbane's international terminal before boarding a flight to her home city of Newcastle in New South Wales.

At both sites she was surrounded by a large media scrum, running from media when she arrived at Newcastle.

Lawrence was arrested at Denpasar airport in 2005 with 2.7 kilos of heroin strapped to her body.

She was initially sentenced to life in prison.

With the support of prosecutors, the sentence was reduced to 20 years on appeal, largely because Lawrence co-operated with investigators and disclosed the roles of other Bali Nine members.

Remissions cut her prison time by a further seven years.
