From what I have heard they really do seem to have reformed .
They only started "reforming"
as before they were sentenced they kept lying and denying they were smuggling drugs.
Rifan has finally detailed claims judges asked for more than $130,000 for a lighter sentence.
The pair have a constitutional court challenge lodged, which would require clarity around the president's obligations on answering clemency requests.
The case is set down for a preliminary hearing on May 12.
Strange, the news report I heard said that the judges were offered a bribe and considered it. Not that they 'asked' for it..
Drug dealers and smugglers would not feel as threatened from their laws any-more either.
they're in the position they are, because they ignored the death penalty factor of smuggling drugs, when they decided to smuggle drugs. they obviously thought the Indonesians were bluffing with those laws,
Indonesia ignored a request from Australia to delay an announcement about the executions of the Bali Nine pair until after Anzac Day, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has revealed.
Ms Bishop said she was "profoundly dismayed" that Indonesian authorities had given Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran their 72 hours notice of executions on Saturday, meaning they can face the firing squad any time after Tuesday evening.
It certainly is, why did Australia allow scumbags like these go to Indonesia several times to smuggle drugs back to Australia?
In what has been dubbed the "last bit of dignity denied", the Bali Nine pair have been denied the company of their spiritual advisors as they prepare to face the firing squad.
Father Charlie Burrows was present when firing squads shot the two Nigerians in the middle of the night, in a forest clearing on Nusa Kambangan Island, Central Java.
"After they were shot they were hurting," Father Burrows said.
"They were moaning and it takes seven minutes to die, the blood was coming out. So then I tried singing a few hymns when they were dying. So you could say it's torture, shooting people. It's torture.
"It's torture. It's seven minutes to die so the heart is trying to pump the blood to the brain, the brain is still alive and as long as there's blood getting to the brain the brain is not going to die."
From what I have heard they really do seem to have reformed and were doing a lot of good in the prison system, killing them will only help the politicians positions. They dont care about helping the people in prison.
