News Corp reports she has agreed to not to hold any interviews “at this stage” after a meeting with parole officers at her luxury villa.
Parole officer Ketut Sukiati visited the villa, said that Corby had asked why she could not be interviewed.
Ms Sukiati said she told Corby she was reiterating a message from the deputy justice minister and Corby agreed not to do any interviews at this stage.
She said Corby told her “OK”.
Parole officers spent less than an hour inside talking with Corby, her sister Mercedes and brother-in-law Wayan Widyartha.
The news follows Sunday Night‘s Mike Willesee telling media “I’m confident Schapelle won’t do or say anything to cause public concern.
“She’s abiding by all the conditions of her parole and I’m sure she will continue to do so.”
Seven is rumoured to have offered $2m for the interview as well as payment for her accommodation and a security team, as well as filming Mercedes Corby’s own denial of the price-tag while criticising Nine’s telemovie.
Indonesian authorities have also advised her to move from the luxury villa to the home of Mercedes Corby but the family felt moving to the compound in Kuta would cause unease to the neighbours because of the media.
Balinese authorities were also offended by the veil worn during meetings after her release.
It’s unclear what the revelations mean for Sunday Night after a week of rumours, denials and ongoing negotiations.
Meanwhile ABC reports a crowd of mostly men from the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) and other hardline groups gathered in the capital Jakarta yesterday demanding Corby’s parole be revoked, saying the justice minister “should be ashamed” for green-lighting her freedom.
“This person brings marijuana into our country and is freed? That is simply unjust. Where are our rights?” senior FPI member Haji Awit Masyhuri said.
“She should have been given the death penalty – all drug traffickers should,” he said, adding that the Indonesian government had shown special treatment for Corby because she was Australian.
