Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Michael Phelan has spoken about the “botched” search warrant executed at Channel Seven earlier this week.

The warrant had been issued as wild rumours surfaced that Schapelle Corby would be paid millions of dollars for an exclusive interview with Channel Seven.      AFP - here no schapelle

SEVEN West Media CEO Tim Worner, issued a statement questioning the validity of the search warrant,

“Seven can confirm that the Australian Federal Police today executed a number of search warrants on the company,” begins Worner’s statement. “These raids came as some surprise to us, given we fully cooperated with requests made of us by the AFP last week including ongoing correspondence between the AFP and our lawyers, all of which were responded to. Our lawyers’ offices were also raided despite their co-operation.”

On Friday 21st February, the AFP apologised for that accusation, saying it was “an innocent word-processing error”.

AFP Ass. Comm. Michael Phelan said this morning proceeds of crime legislation clearly specify that a person convicted of a crime in Australia or overseas should not benefit from their notoriety.

Indonesian authorities are reportedly looking at ways to stop her from selling her story about the nine years she spent in a Bali jail for marijuana smuggling.

Indonesian Deputy Justice Minister, Denny Indrayana, has advised Corby against doing an interview which might breach her parole and could possibly put her back in Kerobokan jail.

Australian laws came into force in 2003, which gave federal authorities the power to confiscate literary proceeds derived from criminal activities.
