Former Prime Ministers have united to appeal for the lives of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.
The Australian reported the former leaders distributed statements pleading for mercy from the Indonesian government.
“As a deep, long-standing friend of Indonesia, I would respectfully request an act of clemency.”
“I would find it heartbreaking if such extraordinary efforts to become of good character were not met with an act of mercy.”
“Mercy being shown in such circumstances would not weaken the deterrent effect of Indonesia’s strong anti-drug laws.”
“In this case, the penalty is out of all proportion to the crime.”
“I call on the Indonesian government to show mercy and clemenecyt to Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran. Justice should be based on human understanding. These two men made a mistake when they were young and foolish.”
“We are very much opposed to the death penalty in Australia.”
Ask the Indonesian President, Joko Widodo, to take mercy on Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, by signing the Mercy Campaign petition.
