Corby TV interview on hold

8:41 am on 15 February 2014

A television interview with Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby is reportedly on hold.

Corby, 36, was released from Kerobokan prison in Bali on Monday on parole after serving nine years.

There were reports the exclusive interview rights with the Seven Network could earn her $A2 million.

However, Indonesia publicly warned Corby earlier that the interview could be in breach of her parole conditions.

Three members of the Bali Parole Board visited Corby at the Sentosa Seminyak resort where she has been staying since she was released from prison.

Parole officer Ketut Sukiati said her brother-in-law Wayan Widyartha had assured them she would follow instructions from Indonesian authorities not to do the interview.

Corby was 27 when she was caught in 2004 attempting to smuggle 4.1kg of marijuana into Bali in a bodyboard bag.

She was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but always maintained her innocence.
