Bali 9 coffins

Bali condemned REFUSE to sign their death warrants as coffins and wooden crosses with Wednesday’s date are laid out

Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran will be executed just after the stroke of midnight on Wednesday (3am AEST), it has been confirmed.

The date – April 29 – became official when a local funeral director in Cilacap, the nearest port to Nusakambangan, or Death Island, was instructed to inscribe the names of those to be shot by firing squad and the date of their deaths.

Chan and Sukumaran both refused to sign their execution warrants when they were given 72 hours notice of their deaths during official proceedings on Saturday, saying they believed it would be unjust to kill them.

This comes as images from Nusakambangan showed a haunting self portrait painted by Sukumaran in his cell on Saturday, titled ’72hrs just started’ and depicting the artist shot through the heart.

    Australians, eh?

    • Indonesia does not kid around, they all knew this.

    They should have thought of the consequences before they started smuggling drugs, both Indonesia and Singapore have zero tolerance for drug smugglers and go out of their way to warn of the consequences.

    These people took a chance to make a quick buck or two and now they face the consequences. Why this is news is a mystery as everyone knows how such crimes are handled in that part of the world.

    They got caught. End of story. Too bad, I guess, for their families.
