MR CHAN AND MR SUKUMARAN - LOSS OF LATEST APPEAL
Labor understands lawyers for Mr Chan and Mr Sukumaran are considering other legal avenues. Of course, all legal processes should be allowed to run their course.
This is obviously not the outcome we had hoped for.
Once again, we plead with Indonesia to grant these two young men clemency.
While there’s life, there’s hope. We will not give up.
We continue to offer every support to the Australian Government in relation to this matter.
Labor opposes the death penalty in every circumstance, in every country.
