Mercedes apology accepted by Indonesian authorities

AN APOLOGY from Schapelle Corby's family has been received well by Indonesian authorities assessing whether to send the Australian convicted drug smuggler back to jail.

Mercedes Corby on Thursday apologised for her interview with the Seven Network, for which the family reportedly was paid more than $2 million.

The statement came after the family pleaded for the media to back off, with the intrusion blamed for Schapelle's attempt at self-harm earlier this week.

Yesterday, an Australian photographer still faced being deported from Bali after being arrested outside the Kuta home where Schapelle Corby is staying.

Nathan Richter was taken into custody on Wednesday night.

Mercedes did not answer questions after giving her statement.

"From the bottom of my heart I am very sorry to the people of Indonesia if my interview on Australian TV caused unease," she said.
