Murder convicts shot by firing squads

3 convicted murderers were shot by firing squads Saturday, including a mother and son executed in Surabaya and a man executed in Banten.
Sumiarsih, 60, and her son Sugeng, 44, were shot by a firing squad at 20 past midnight Saturday in a remote field in the East Java capital.
They were blindfolded and shot by 20 police officers from a distance of 30 meters.
They were convicted of murdering a marine named Purwanto and the 4 other members of his family in 1988 (not 1998 as reported Saturday) over a money dispute and were sentenced to death in 1989. The murder took place in the red-light district of Dolly in Surabaya.
Sumiarsih's husband, Djais Adi Prayitno, and her son in-law, Adi Saputro, were also involved in the killing. Adi Saputro, formerly a member of the police, was put to death in 1992. Djais died of illness.
Separately, Yusuf Maulana, who claimed to have the power to magically duplicate money, was executed Friday at around 10:30 p.m. in Banten, Reuters reported.
The bodies of all 3 convicts were returned to their families early Saturday for burial.
Sumiarsih's last request was that her cell mates continue to care for her flowers. Her son, Sugeng, asked to meet his old friend, Camelia. Both were granted their last wishes.
Local and international human rights groups have repeatedly called for the end to the death penalty, saying it does not necessarily stop people from engaging in serious crimes.
A high ranking official of East Java's prosecutor's office, I Made Suratmaja, said in Surabaya on Saturday that opponents to the death penalty should propose to the government and the legislature that they revise the criminal code and other laws justifying the punishment.
Soeteja Djajasasmita, Sumiarsih and Sugeng's lawyer, said he had tried to spare his clients' lives, but had failed. He had argued that they had served 20 years in prison and that they had both expressed remorse for their crimes.
"I hope there will be no death penalty or executions anymore in the future. Let this be the last one," he added.
The mother and son held prayers with priests before their execution.
Sumiarsih and Sugeng's body were buried at public cemetery Sama'an in Malang, East Java. The burial attracted a small crowd as the cemetery is close to a traditional market.
Hakim, spokesman for the Purwanto family, said they had forgiven the 2 convicts.
Indonesia also executed 2 Nigerian nationals in June on drug trafficking charges. Last year on June 10, the state executed self-professed shaman, Ahmad Suradji, who killed 42 women to increase his magical powers.
Currently, Indonesia has 109 convicts on death row, including 3 terrorists sentenced to death for their involvement in the 2002 Bali bombing.
