Prisoners at imminent risk of execution

Three prisoners were moved on 8 May at around 8pm from Batam Class II Penitentiary in Riau Islands to Batu prison in Nusakambangan prison island in Central Java, where 13 executions were carried out in 2015.

The authorities have not yet made public the names of the prisoners selected for execution nor the date of the scheduled executions.
