Hundreds of Indonesian migrant workers face death penalty in foreign countries

July 02, 2011
At least 200 Indonesian migrant workers working in foreign countries are facing death penalties for committing murder and drug trafficking cases, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said here on Friday.
"In total there are 200 Indonesian people working abroad who are expecting death penalties at the time being," the president said before discussing plans to set up a task force serving migrant workers lingered in legal cases in foreign countries.
"Seventy percent of them were involved in drug trafficking cases and 20 percent committed in murder cases," the president added.
According to the president, the task force had to deal with legal apparatus in countries where those workers are expecting death penalties, in terms of asking clemencies and sentence reduction for those workers. The president said those sentenced workers are now serving in Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Malaysia and China.
The president said that he would not burden the task team with targets, saying that he would encourage and fully-support the task force in carrying its duties.
"I understand that they would face a very tough job. I would say that it was like a 'mission impossible.' But with our determined efforts and by God's willing, it could be turned into mission possible," he said.
Indonesia has submitted its official protest to Saudi Arabian government over the recent beheading of an Indonesian migrant worker who was accused of murdering her employer.
