JAKARTA – Muhammad Prasetyo, Indonesia Attorney-General, said on Tuesday in Jakarta, that the 10 death-row convicts, including two Australian drug smugglers would be executed together.
He said this was to ensure efficiency and effectiveness in the execution process.
“I think doing it at the same time is better in terms of efficiency, effectiveness and security, “he said.
Prasetyo said a Jakarta court on Monday rejected a last-ditch appeal filed by Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran challenging the president’s refusal to grant them clemency.
Prasetyo said legal challenges after the convicts’ failed requests for presidential clemency were unusual, but the government was willing to wait. [pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10”]
“It should have been over but when there are challenges we respect them,” he said.
The other convicts on death row are two other Nigerians and one each from the Philippines, Ghana, Brazil and Indonesia. (dpa/NAN)
