Indonesia's justice minister says he may revoke Schapelle Corby's parole after watching the Seven Network's documentary about her release from jail.

Amir Syamsuddin is likely to make the decision within days, Fairfax Media reports.

"I am waiting for a complete report from the Bali Corrections Board, and in the meantime I'd like to announce that there's a possibility I will revoke Corby's parole," he told a small group of journalists.

The Indonesian government had warned the Corby family that Schapelle should not do a post-release interview, but the story on Seven's Sunday Night program used candid footage of Corby and an interview with her sister, Mercedes.

The program captured Schapelle's first moments out of jail after being convicted in 2005 of drug smuggling.
