Police Raid Australian TV Network over Exclusive Interview

19 February 2014

Australian police, seeking to prevent a convicted drug trafficker from profiting from her life story, raided on Tuesday the headquarters of a television network that is negotiating an exclusive interview deal. Schapelle Corby has been holed up in an expensive Bali resort since she was released on parole last week from a nearby Indonesian prison. The 35-year-old Australian has been negotiating with media companies to sell her story about being caught at Bali’s airport with 4.2 kg of marijuana in her surfboard bag and spending the next nine years in prison. Australian Federal Police confirmed that they searched Seven Network headquarters in Sydney.—AP
