Bali Nine's Andrew Chan will face the firing squad.

Bali Nine member Andrew Chan has had his clemency plea against a death sentence rejected by Indonesian president Joko Widodo.

All legal appeals against his death sentence for drug trafficking have now been officially exhausted.

A Denpasar district court spokesman made the announcement, which the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs has now confirmed.

Earlier this month Chan’s fellow ringleader in the Bali Nine plot, Myuran Sukumaran, received notice that his appeal had been turned down.

The pair, who are both from Sydney, attempted to traffic more than eight kilograms of heroin to Australia in 2005.

Mr Widodo has vowed not to grant clemency for drug-related offences and on Sunday six convicts — including five foreigners — were executed.

Indonesian attorney-general HM Prasetyo last week said the timing of Sukamaran’s execution depended on the outcome of Chan’s clemency bid.

He said because Sukamaran and Chan committed the crime together, they must be executed together, and the date of Sukamaran’s execution depended on whether Chan received clemency.

Julian McMahon, the Australian lawyer for Chan and Sukumaran, had called for the decision on Chan’s clemency to be indefinitely delayed.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott had written to the Indonesian president asking him to show mercy to the two men, saying there was evidence they were genuinely remorseful.

“I don’t want to pre-empt what may or may not happen afterwards, but I think these two are well and truly reformed characters and I hope the Indonesians will accept that, acknowledge it,” he said.

“I hope that the evidence of genuine remorse, of genuine rehabilitation, means that even at this late stage pleas for clemency might be accepted.”

However, Mr Abbott said he would not let the case of the two men affect the relationship between the two countries.
