Schapelle Corby 'good to go' for paid interview: Willessee

SCHAPELLE Corby's brother-in-law has met with Indonesian authorities in a bid to strike a deal and allow for a paid interview between the convicted drug smuggler and Channel Seven to go ahead.

Sunday Night journalist Mike Willesee said that Wayan Widiartha was due to meet with Ms Corby's parole officers on Wednesday morning in a bid to end the impasse.

Willesee said Seven was prepared to let the officers sit in on the interview if that is what it would take to make it happen.

Once they have that approval, Willesee said Ms Corby herself was ''good to go''.

A spokesman for the Indonesian Corrections Department, Ayub Suratman, said the interview was still ''forbidden'' but if it was to take place parole officers ''will have to be there''.
