Indonesia will not order the executions of Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran for at least another week.


Spokesman for Indonesia’s attorney-general, Tony Spontana, says the executions of six drug offenders held last week are still being evaluated.

“Evaluation on the first execution implementation is predicted to be finished this week,” he said on Monday.

“After the evaluation of the first executions is finished, then we will prepare for the second round.”

Chan, 31, and Sukumaran, 33, have had their pleas for presidential clemency rejected and are on track for the firing squad.

They were visited by family and friends on Monday.

Chan’s older brother Michael arrived, followed by Sukumaran’s mother Raji, wearing dark sunglasses.

Sukumaran’s younger brother Chintu went into the prison with his younger sister, Brintha, both looking upset after the visit.

Australia’s consul-general in Bali Majel Hind accompanied them.

None spoke to reporters.

The pair’s lawyers are preparing to file for another judicial review of their cases, but it’s uncertain the courts will hear a second extraordinary appeal.

Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo argues executions of drug offenders are needed to shock the nation out of its drugs crisis.

But lawyers for the Australians, as well as Prime Minister Tony Abbott, argue the men are reformed, and deserving of mercy.

Kerobokan prison governor Sudjonggo told reporters he saw Sukumaran meeting his mother and siblings in the visitors’ hall, and Chan with his brother in another room, but didn’t join them.

“I don’t want to bother them, let them make the most of the visiting hours,” he said.

“They have asked for more relaxed visiting hours, and with that, maybe (Sukumaran and Chan) will be stronger.”

Chan also requested a visit from a local religious minister on Monday, who led him in a prayer for courage.

Minister Marjuly Dolok Saribu told reporters his friend’s spirits were still high, despite what faced him.

“His cheerfulness remains the same,” he said.

“No fear shows in his face. Since we met at the Christmas church service, he has changed a lot, and it’s remarkable.

“He’s strong. God made him strong, if he was only using his own strength, all humans fear death.”
