Indonesia to carry out more executions next year  

Jakarta, Sep 22 (IANS) Indonesian authorities have announced that a third phase of executions of narcotics convicts is expected to be held early next year, the media reported.

“Currently we are processing the budget. Since there are only a few months left in 2015, we’re probably going to carry out (the third phase of executions) at the beginning of next year,” Arsul Sani, a member of House Commission, was quoted as saying.

According to Arsul, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has not yet submitted a definitive schedule for the next round of executions and if it has enough money left from this year’s budget, the AGO may carry out the executions sooner, The Jakarta Post reported.

According to AGO data, there were, as of early 2015, 64 narcotics-related death row prisoners. Six were executed in the first phase on January 18, followed by a further eight in the second phase on April 29 including two Australian drug traffickers.
