Bali Nine lawyer plans last-minute bid to halt firing squad


SYDNEY: Lawyers for two Australians facing imminent execution in Bali said on Monday they plan to launch a rare challenge against the Indonesian president’s refusal to grant them a pardon. Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, ringleaders of the so-called “Bali Nine” drug smuggling gang, lost a legal bid in the Balinese capital Denpasar to have their cases reviewed last week. But their lawyer Todung Mulya Lubis told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation he planned one last attempt to save their lives by challenging Indonesian President Joko Widodo’s decision not to pardon them in an administrative court.
