Indonesia stands by death penalties

Indonesia today stood by its right to impose a possible death penalty on nine Australians arrested in bali for alleged drug smuggling.

It said drugs were a major problem in Indonesia and had had a great impact on the Indonesian people, especially those of the younger generation.

"Hundreds of thousands of people have fallen victim to drug misuse," a statement from the Indonesian embassy in Canberra said today.

"Therefore the Indonesian government has always enforced stern action against those involved in drug smuggling.

"Article 82 of Indonesia's Law No 22 of 1997 on drugs promulgates the death sentence on those involved in the horrendous crime of drug smuggling."

The statement referred to the arrest of the nine Australians in Bali on April 17 for alleged involvement in heroin smuggling.

That came at the climax of a joint Indonesian National Police and Australian Federal Police investigation.

The statement said the Indonesian government always appreciated and needed the cooperation of friendly regional countries to help combat international crime including drug smuggling.

"This cooperation which is ongoing has been of considerable assistance to the Indonesian government in combating illegal drugs in order to save the lives of tens of millions of Indonesia's young people as well as those in the region," it said.

"Therefore we call upon all who care very much about the destructive power of drugs to help our authorities in the war against drugs."

Hmmm... perhaps they should have concentrated on slaughtering foreigners in Bali instead - the penalty is a lot more lenient...

I think it is right to hang them and not grant any pardon or go easy just becos they are white. They knew the law, they were warned over and over again before they entered Indonesia that drug smuggling is punishable with hanging. Hang them and broadcast it on TV to Australia and all them western countries
