Don`t try to disrupt the executions by any means. The military is prepared."Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Chief of the National Defense Forces (TNI) Gen. Moeldoko has warned against obstructing the planned execution of convicts on death row.
"Dont try to disrupt the executions by any means. The military is prepared. Dont try to introduce a scenario that will disrupt the executions," he said after concluding the second class of a course on the leadership of Banser, the security wing of Indonesias largest Muslim organization Nahdlatul Ulama, here on Monday.
TNI soldiers will make every effort to secure the execution of convicts on death row, he said, adding that special troops have been prepared to provide security before and after the executions.
Asked about the dispatch of three Sukhoi jet fighters to the Bali provincial capital of Denpasar, Moeldoko revealed the move was part of anticipatory measures.
"TNI will take security measures to anticipate the farthest possibilities," he added.
The Indonesian government is likely to go ahead with the execution of convicts on death row after President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo turned down their requests for clemency.
Two of the convicts are Australian nationals Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran who are part of the Bali Nine drug ring. They were arrested at Denpasar airport while trying to smuggle 8.3 kilograms of heroin from Indonesia to Australia.
Australia has urged Indonesia to cancel the execution of its two citizens by invoking Australian aid for the victims of the deadly tsunami that hit Aceh in December 2004.
