"I have communicated with the minister earlier regarding the
would-be stories, interviews.
"We have agreed, and we have conveyed this to corrections
board officers, that it would be better that those interviews
were not conducted because the content might invite polemics
and it's possible that it creates unease among society."
If the interview took place, Mr Indrayana said, it was
possible that Corby's parole would be revoked.
"So, instead of creating problems, we're giving the view,
advice, as I have conveyed to corrections board officers to
convey this to Corby that it (the interview) shall not be

been in talks with the Seven Network about giving her first
TV interview, with reports the exclusive rights could earn
her $2 million.
The backlash in both Australia and Indonesia prompted sister
Mercedes Corby to release a statement to TV in both languages
earlier on Thursday.
In it, she said: "The sums being reported are ridiculous".
