Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, part of Bali Nine, the Australian drug trafficking gang, all eight of whom were executed by Indonesian firing squad this morning inspite of Australian requests for clemency to the eight. A strong warning by Indonesia to cross border drug traffickers.
The irony is these drug traffickers were endangering Australian youngsters and Australian govt itself was seeking amnesty for these australian citizens.
Indonesian Presidemt Joko Widodo deserves special praise for resisting pressure. This execution also sends the right message to Australia on who is helping promote drug trafficking.
Would Indonesia succumbing to Australian pressure have made a difference ?
