Indonesia: Abolish the death penalty

Indonesia has carried out five executions since August 2004, and more people may soon be executed. Amnesty International knows of 85 people under sentence of death, convicted by a justice system that is widely acknowledged to be in severe need of reform.

Amnesty International is helping foster public debate in Indonesia, and building pressure on authorities to suspend all executions and take steps to abolish the death penalty altogether.
