CILACAP, Indonesia – The Indonesian government a couple hours after midnight on Friday, July 29, announced it had executed 4 drug convicts – including 3 Africans and one Indonesian.
The number was much smaller than the expected 14 who were scheduled to be executed. It is unclear as to why the government spared the 10, although Deputy attorney general Noor Rachmad said shortly afterwards that “the rest will be carried out in stages,” but the timings had not yet been decided.
The government continued with the executions despite international public outcry condemning the capital punishment for drug-related offenses.
