     DEATH NOTICE     


ANDREW CHAN: 12 January 1984 – 29 April 2015


MYURAN SUKUMARAN:  17 April 1981 – 29 April 2015


Both murdered by firing sqad earlier this morning on Nusakambangan Island on the orders of Indonesian President Joko Widodo and a corrupt legal system. 


The Australian Federal Police remain reckless accomplices in their murders.


I did my best, it wasn't much

I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch

I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you

And even though it all went wrong

I'll stand before the Lord of Song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

~ from Hallelujah, by Leonard Cohen


We hold the families and friends of all those who were murdered, in our grieving hearts and inadequate embrace.


In remembrance, we will continue the global fight to abolish the death penalty. We salute the legal teams and stranger and friend alike who campaigned for the lives of Andrew and Myuran and acknowledge the tireless efforts of Majell Hind, our Consul-General in Bali, and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.


May the victims rest in peace.
