09:30 Lawyer for Australian Bali 9 drug smugglers on new appeal
The two Australian men awaiting the death penalty for drug smuggling in Bali have earned a short reprieve, as the Indonesian government agrees to let their legal appeal run its course. But Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, who are among the so-called Bali Nine drug smugglers, still face the death penalty, possibly within days. They were arrested in 2006 after organising the smuggling of more than eight kilograms of heroin from Bali to Australia. The Australians were transported last week Bali's Kerobokan prison to a Java prison island, where they're due to face a firing squad. They're now awaiting news about the timing of their executions, for which they have to be given 72 hours notice. But first, their appeal to the Jakarta Administrative Court has been confirmed, and set to take place on Thursday, after Indonesia's Attorney-General appeared to say the executions of the Australians and eight other drug criminals would be postponed until all current legal appeals were dealt with. Michael O'Connell SC is one of a team of lawyers that have been assisting Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran since 2007.
