Why the fuss over executions?

TWO Australians, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, are convicted of drug charges and given the death penalty.

They committed the offence in Bali under the sovereignty of the Indonesian government. They were given death penalties, which are prescribed by Indonesian law.

They had been given all the rights of defence according to law.

Now, why all the fuss with some Australians interfering in the judicial system of another country, Indonesia.

It has its own sovereignty and it can exercise the law looking to the best interests of the country and its people.

Some Australians are saying they had helped with the billions of dollars at the time of the tsunami, implying that Indonesia should repay by sparing the lives of the two Australian convicts.

What nonsense.

I pity the two Australians with all my heart but let me say ” let the Indonesian government and its people do what is best for them within the ambit of law.
