Police seeking to prevent a convicted drug trafficker from profiting from her life story have raided the Sydney 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 from an Indonesian prison last week.

The 35-year-old Australian has been negotiating with media companies over a deal to sell her story about being caught at a Bali airport with 9lb of marijuana in her surfboard bag and spending the next nine years in prison.

Australian Federal Police confirmed that they had executed search warrants at Seven Network offices today.

Under Australian law, courts can seize all the profits a criminal makes from any book or media interview deals.
