Death: Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.
- Bali Nine duo to be transferred to Indonesia’s Alcatraz
- Myuran Sukamaran paints the island of his execution
- Nusakambangan, island of the damned
It’s a tale of two drug rings in Indonesia. The first manufactured kilograms of the drug ice, known locally as sabu sabu, at a factory in Surabaya and pumped it out throughout the country, hooking Indonesia’s youth. The second was the Bali Nine plot to transit 8.3 kilograms of heroin from Thailand to the streets of Australia with a brief stopover in Bali.
Suddenly, the attitude of the court changed. The death penalty, it found, violated Article 28 of the Indonesian constitution.
Both drug rings were busted by Indonesian police and the perpetrators brought to the courts. The key figures in both were handed the death penalty. But that is where the similarity ends.
