Bali Nine - Criminal Proceedings - Appeals


There were several avenues of appeal available to the Bali Nine. Lawyers had seven days post-sentencing to lodge appeals. There is no time limit for those convicted to request clemency from the Indonesian president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, however this requires an admission of guilt and has never been granted for a drug trafficking conviction. All appealed to overturn their sentence. Chen, Czugaj, Nguyen, Norman, and Stephens sentences stand at life imprisonment and Lawrence's sentence remains at 20 years after appeal. In May 2011, Rush's death sentence was reduced to life after he launched a final appeal in August 2010.} Chan and Sukumaran launched final appeals to have their death sentences reduced in August 2010. Chan lost his appeal to the Indonesian Supreme Court on 10 May 2011 and Sukumaran's appeal was dismissed on 6 July 2011. Both are expected to be executed by firing squad. Some media reports have stated that appeals for clemency are unlikely to be successful.

Famous quotes containing the word appeals:

    Whatever appeals to the imagination, by transcending the ordinary limits of human ability, wonderfully encourages and liberates us.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It was not reason that besieged Troy; it was not reason that sent forth the Saracen from the desert to conquer the world; that inspired the crusades; that instituted the monastic orders; it was not reason that produced the Jesuits; above all, it was not reason that created the French Revolution. Man is only great when he acts from the passions; never irresistible but when he appeals to the imagination.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)

    If tragedy elicits our compassion, comedy appeals to our self-interest. The former confronts life’s failures with noble fortitude, the latter seeks to circumvent them with shrewd nonchalance. The one leaves us momentarily in a mood of resignation, the other in a condition of euphoria.
    Harry Levin (b. 1912)
