Indonesia informs death row convicts execution just days away | Reuters

CILACAP, Indonesia (Reuters) - Indonesia has informed two Australians, one Nigerian and four other death-row drug convicts that they will be executed in a matter of days, possibly as soon as Tuesday. The Attorney General's office said notices that they would face a firing squad after 72 hours were delivered to the seven on the prison island of Nusakambangan, despite last-minute appeals for clemency from the Australian government and others. "My client just received a notification letter that in 72 hours there will be an execution," said Utomo Karim, the lawyer for the Nigerian convict, adding that six others were also told the countdown to their execution had started. #Politics #Business #United States #India #Brazil #France #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico

Indonesia hopes to announce execution date for 10 drug convicts soon| Reuters

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian authorities said on Thursday they hoped to announce soon the date of the execution of a group of drug convicts after the highest court rejected the final appeals of all but one. More than half of the 10 prisoners facing the firing squad are foreign nationals, and the case has strained Jakarta's relations with Australia, France and Brazil. "We hope the Supreme Court's decision on the last case will come as soon as possible so that we can determine the date (of execution) soon," said Tony Spontana, spokesman for the attorney general's office. #Politics #Sports #United States #India #Brazil #Middle East #United Kingdom #opinion

Cardozo said the government was confident it would successfully appeal the court's ruling criticizing the postponement of transfers to state banks last year, allegedly to make Brazil's fiscal accounts look better.
