1. Bali Nine: Andrew Chan, Myuran Sukumaran to be moved to Nusakambangan island today, ahead of executions.
By George Roberts, ABC.
The ABC understands the Bali Nine duo are to be moved from their prison to the Indonesian island of Nusakambangan this morning, but the date of their executions is yet to be decided.
Senior security and Indonesian justice sources have told the ABC it is due to happen this morning, with two saying that it will be around 6:00am (local time).
If this latest plan runs to schedule, security personnel will arrive at Kerobokan prison to take custody of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.
Under heavy guard they will then be transferred to Nusakambangan island prison, off the coast of Java, where their executions are to take place.
Prison officials have been told to get ready to discharge the two Australians.
“We have prepared the administrative part of it. We keep checking and rechecking, so there won’t be any mistakes in the dots and commas,” prison governor Sujonggo said.
“Our job is just that, to prepare the people, papers, and that’s it. And they all have to match.”
The rest will be up to prosecutors acting under the authority of attorney-general Muhammad Prasteyo and the police and military personnel involved in the transfer.
Bali’s chief prosecutor, Momock Bambang Samiarso, told reporters on Tuesday that within two days he planned to send the pair to the island where they were due to be executed.
Mr Prasetyo, who is in charge of the executions, said on Tuesday afternoon that he was still waiting for a report on preparations at the island prison in the next couple of days.
He said preparations were 95 per cent complete.
Mr Prasteyo has to give Chan and Sukumaran 72 hours’ notice before the men can face a firing squad.
