Executions in Indonesia since 1995

Indonesia has executed 13 people since 1995, with the execution of three men in Central Sulawesi last week. All executions were carried out by firing squad.

According to Amnesty International (AI), at least 90 people are now believed to be under sentence of death in Indonesia.

AI said the latest executions were the first it had recorded in Indonesia since May 2005. "This raises strong fears for the fate of all those who are currently awaiting execution," it said.

In the past 11 years, Indonesia has carried out the following known executions:

Hi Anon, this post was written in September 2006. The ADP story on the Nigerians from June is posted at: http://asiadeathpenalty.blogspot.com/2008/06/indonesia-drug-offenders-executed-more.html.

Aside from the Nigerians and the Bali bombers, there have been five other executions this year in Indonesia.

I will shortly be posting an updated list of executions in Indonesia, which includes the Nigerians.
