Australian Drug Traffickers To Be Notified Of Execution

The more Australia attempts to intervene in and insult the Indonesian judicial system, the more damage will be done to relations with Indonesia; hypocrite AU politicians wring hands while ignoring massive drug problem in AU

JAKARTA -

Bali nine organisers Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran may have just three days left to live after they were officially given 72 hours notification of their executions on Saturday.


The condemned men are bracing to be [executed] on Tuesday night however Attorney-General spokesman Tony Spontana said no date had been set and they may have longer.

Their Australian lawyer Julian McMahon returned from Nusakambangan, where the men will be executed, with three self-portraits painted by Sukumaran. One painting, still wet and dated April 25, carried the haunting inscription: "The 72 hours just started". The second dated April 24 was called "Strange Day". And the third, also dated April 25, said: "Our new prints: A bad sleep last night."


Under Indonesian law the earliest a prisoner can be executed once they receive official notification is in 72 hours time. 

The Attorney-General's office has indicated it is waiting on Monday's Supreme Court decision on Indonesian marijuana trafficker Zainal Abidin before setting a date.

The men's devastated families, who are scrambling to get to Cilacap, will now be allowed to visit the men every day in their isolation cells on Nusakambangan before they are shot by a 12 man firing squad.

Indonesian authorities today advised Australian consular officials that the executions of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran will be scheduled imminently at Nusa Kambangan prison in central Java.



Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said nothing can be gained and much will be lost if the Australians are executed.



"Legal challenges remain before the Constitutional Court and Judicial Commission, which raise fundamental questions about the integrity of their sentencing and the clemency process. These claims should be heard.," she said.




Ms Bishop said she had spoken to Sukumaran's mother Raji on Friday and assured her the government would continue to seek clemency from Indonesian President Joko Widodo for both men.

A French man on death row with Chan and Sukumaran won a temporary reprieve from the firing squad but any hope for the nine others has disappeared.

Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman Arrmanatha Nasir told Fairfax Media the French Embassy was not among those summoned to discuss the imminent executions because Serge Atlaoui still had a legal case before the Administrative Court.

However the execution of the remaining nine drug felons is likely to occur within days.



Local undertaker Suhendro Putro told Fairfax Media police had asked him on Friday to prepare coffins but had not given him an indication of how many. 

"I hope it's less than ten," Mr Suhendro said.

Australian, Brazilian, Philippine and Nigerian consul staff met in Cilacap - the town near death island - at 12pm Jakarta time on Saturday to be briefed on the grim logistics.




In yet another ominous portent, all of the felons except Atlaoui have been transferred to isolation cells in the high security Besi prison on Nusakambangan ahead of the executions.

The Indonesian man, Zainal Abidin's death already seems a fait accompli despite Monday's court ruling, with his family contacted by authorities on Friday to ask where and how they wanted his body buried.

"It really upsets the family. It's as if they already know the outcome, that it's going to get rejected," said Abidin's lawyer Ade Yuliawan.



In Gallipoli, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said he did not know when the executions would be carried out. "I guess there's always hope while there's life but obviously these are late days."

The Attorney-General's Office has repeatedly said it would wait for all legal processes to be exhausted because it wanted to execute the 10 drug felons simultaneously.

Several prisoners besides Atlaoui have ongoing legal processes, including the Australians, Filipina maid Mary Jane Fiesta Veloso, and Brazilian Rodrigo Gularte, who is schizophrenic.


But the Indonesian government insists they have no remaining channels of appeal.

"We only sent notification to embassies whose nationals have exhausted their legal avenues," Mr Arrmanatha said. Lawyers for Veloso on Friday lodged a request for a second judicial review on the grounds she was "primarily a human trafficking victim in the first place, and therefore, must be protected." Her Indonesia lawyer Ismail Muhammad, who visited Veloso on the island on Saturday with her two young sons and other family members, said they didn't yet know whether it would be accepted by the Supreme Court.


But the Foreign Ministry's Mr Arrmanatha said Indonesian law stated there could only be one judicial review.

Lawyers for the Australians are challenging the clemency laws in the Constitutional Court and the Judicial Commission is investigating allegations the judges who sentenced Chan and Sukumaran to death offered bribes for lighter sentences.

However, any ruling made on the country's clemency laws by the Constitutional Court would not be retrospective and the Attorney-General has made it clear the case would not prevent the executions from proceeding.




Atlaoui, a welder, was arrested near Jakarta in 2005 in a secret laboratory producing ecstasy.

He has always maintained he was innocent of drug charges and was simply installing equipment in what he thought was an acrylics factory.


His lawyers lodged an appeal in the Administrative Court on April 23 and are waiting for a date.

A spokeswoman said Atlaui's wife, Sabine, had not been informed that he had been taken off the list for this batch of executions.

A source close to his case said it would be a violation of the law if Atlaoui was executed before six others who were arrested at the acrylics factory at the same and had also been sentenced to death.

"According to the law, people who are sentenced to death in one case must be executed together," she said.


The Indonesian government held off executing Sukumaran in the first round of executions on January 18 this year because Chan had not yet received a response to his clemency plea.

Truth Is Washington’s Enemy

Obama's agenda: Silence the truth-tellers at all costs  

STRATEGIC CULTURE FOUNDATION
By Paul Craig Roberts
04/21/2015

U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R, CA) is busy at work destroying the possibility of truth being spoken in the US. 


On April 15 at a hearing before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs of which Royce is chairman, Royce made use of two minor presstitutes to help him redefine all who take exception to Washington’s lies as "threats" who belong to a deranged pro-Russian propaganda cult. 

Washington’s problem is that whereas Washington controls the print and TV media in the US and its vassal states in Europe, Canada, Australia, Ukraine, and Japan, Washington does not control Internet sites, such as this one, or media, such as RT, of non-vassal states. Consequently, Washington’s lies are subject to challenge, and as people lose confidence in print and TV media because of their propagandistic nature, Washington’s agendas, which depend on lies, are experiencing rougher sledding. 


Truth is bubbling up through Washington’s propaganda. 

Confronted with the possibility of a loss of control over every explanation, Hillary Clinton, Ed Royce, and the rest are suddenly complaining that Washington is "losing the information war." Huge sums of taxpayers’ hard earned money will now be used to combat the truth with lies.




What to do? How to suppress truth with lies in order to remain in control? The answer says Andrew Lack, Royce, et. al., is to redefine a truth-teller as a terrorist. Thus, the comparison of RT and "dissident" Internet bloggers to the Islamist State and the designated terror group, Boko Haram.

Royce expanded the redefinition of truth-teller to include bloggers, such as Chris Hedges, John Pilger, Glenn Greenwald and the rest of us, who object to the false reality that Washington creates in order to serve undeclared agendas. 


For example, if Washington wants to pour profits into the military/security complex in exchange for political campaign contributions, the politicians cannot say that. Instead, they claim to protect America from a dangerous enemy or from weapons of mass destruction by starting a war. If politicians want to advance American financial or energy imperialism, they have to do so in the name of "bringing freedom and democracy." 


If the politicians want to prevent the rise of other countries, such as Russia, President Obama has to depict Russia as a threat comparable to the Ebola virus and the Islamist State. 

Noam Chomsky summed it up when he said that Washington regards any information that does not repeat Washington’s propaganda to be intolerable.

Washington’s assault on truth as a threat helps to make sense of the gigantic National Security Agency spy system exposed by William Binney and Edward Snowden. One of the purposes of the spy network is to identify all "dissidents" who challenge Big Brother’s "Truth."


There is, or will be, a dossier on every "dissident" with all of the dissident’s emails, Internet searches, websites visited, phone calls, purchases, travels. The vast amount of information on each dissident can be combed for whatever can be taken out of context to make a case against him, if a case is even needed. Washington has already successfully asserted its power over the Constitution to indefinitely detain without charges and to torture and to murder US citizens. 


It was a couple of years ago that Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security, said that the department’s focus had shifted from terrorists to domestic extremists. 

Lumped into the category of domestic extremists are environmental activists, animal rights activists, anti-war activists which includes disillusioned war veterans, and people who believe in states’ rights, limited government and accountable government. Consequently, many dissidents, America’s best citizens, will qualify as domestic extremists on several accounts. Chris Hedges, for example, is an advocate for animals as well as concerned about the environment and Washington’s never-ending wars.




The spying and the coming crackdown on "dissidents" might also explain the $385 million federal contract awarded to a subsidiary of Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton, to build detention camps in the US. Few seem to be concerned with who the camps are to detain. 

There is no media or congressional investigation. It seems unlikely that the camps are for hurricane or forest fire evacuees. Concentration camps are usually for people regarded as unreliable. And as Lack, Royce, et. al. have made clear, unreliable people are those who do not support Washington’s lies.


Coward, feral pigs now targeting military Vets as leadership threats, and indeed have one hell of a surprise in store for them when they finally, irrevocably cross the line and are engaged and eradicated by millions of heavily armed, expertly trained, pissed off Veterans

A perceived need by Washington, and the private power structure that Washington serves, to protect themselves from "dissidents" could also be the reason for the very strange military operations in various of the states to infiltrate, occupy, and round-up "threats" among the civilian population. The presstitute CNN reported that the National Guard troops sent to Ferguson, Missouri, were programmed to view the civilian protesters as "enemy forces" and "adversaries," and we know that the state and local militarized police are trained to view US citizens as threats.


CNN's fraud, hack, homosexual pedophile and CIA dupe Anderson Cooper

As far as I can discern, not many Americans, whether Democrat or Republican, liberal, conservative, or super-patriot, educated or not, understand that Washington with the cooperation of its presstitute media has defined truth as a threat. In Washington’s opinion, truth is a greater threat than Ebola, Russia, China, terrorism, and the Islamic State combined.

A government that cannot survive truth and must resort to stamping out truth is not a government that any country wants. But such an undesirable government is the government that Clinton –Bush – Cheney – Obama – Hillary – Lack - Royce have given us. Does it satisfy you? Are you content that in your name and with your hard-earned and increasingly scarce taxed earnings, you have enabled Washington in the 21st century to murder, maim, and displace millions of peoples in eight countries and that you have been set on the path of war with Russia and China?
