Two convicts in drug case to be executed together, says Indonesia

  • Two Australian nationals convicted in a drugs case in Indonesia will be simultaneously executed, according to attorney general MS Prasetyo.

    Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran will be executed together as they committed the crime at the same time, he said.

    While Sukumaran’s clemency appeal has been rejected, Chan awaits the reply to his appeal.

    Australia, which is opposed to the death penalty, has said it would continue to campaign for its nationals facing capital punishment in foreign countries.
