Indonesia’s president says executions won’t be delayed

“The first thing I need to say firmly is that there shouldn’t be any intervention towards the death penalty because it is our sovereign right to exercise our law,” President Joko Widodo told reporters.

Widodo said he took calls from the leaders of France, Brazil and the Netherlands about the death penalty. A court earlier rejected an appeal by two Australians among the 11 against the rejection of their request for presidential clemency.
