Only the execution of pregnant women or underage children is banned, Attorney General HM Prasetyo said.
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Attorney General HM Prasetyo has reiterated that mental disorder in a death row convict will not deter Indonesia from carrying out its plan to execute 11 convicts.

He said there has been no rule banning the execution of convicts with mental disorder.

Only the execution of pregnant women or underage children is banned, he said here on Friday.

HM Prasetyo noted the execution of the second batch of death row convicts will be carried out as soon as all preparations are in place.

He revealed he has been coordinating with the police for preparing the firing squad for executions, with the regional offices of the ministry of religious affairs for assembling priests for the convicts, and to finalize the location for executions and other procedures.

He added his office will also inform the public about the executions so they can be carried out without any interruption.

"So far, every high prosecutors office has expressed their readiness to assist with executions," he stressed.

Earlier, the Attorney Generals Office (AGO) revealed that one of the death row convicts, Rodrigo Gularte from Brazil, was suffering from a mental disorder.

The AGO plans to execute 11 convicts on death row, including the drug convicts from Australia, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, whose clemency pleas had been rejected by President Joko Widodo.

Three convicts face execution over murder charges. They are Indonesian citizens Iyen bin Azwar, Harun bin Ajis, and Sargawi, alias Ali bin Sanusi.

Six convicts, including five foreigners, to be put to death over narcotics cases are Mary Jane Fiesta Veloso from the Philippines, Serge Areski Atlaoui from France, Martin Anderson, alias Belo, from Ghana, Indonesia citizen Zainal Abidin, Raheem Agbaje Salami from Cordova, and Rodrigo Gularte from Brazil.(*)
