AGO to execute five convicts
Jakarta Post (National News): Saturday, November 22, 2008

JAKARTA: The Attorney General's Office (AGO) is preparing to execute five convicts who are on death row before the end of the year.

Assistant attorney general for general crimes Abdul Hakim Ritonga said one of the five convicts was a Nigerian, who had been found guilty of a drug-related crime. The rest are Indonesians.

Ritonga, however, denied reports that premeditated murder convict Gunawan Santosa was among the criminals who would soon face a firing squad.

"(Gunawan) is still appealing," Ritonga said.

Also, the execution of three members of an Australian drug ring known as the "Bali Nine" was still hanging in the balance due to their case review appeal, Ritonga said.

The executions will take place on Nusakambangan Island, where several maximum security prisons are located and where the three Bali bombers were executed early this month. -- JP
