The Government is disappointed at today’s decision by the State Administrative Court of Jakarta to reject the appeals of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.

We understand that the legal team for Mr Chan and Mr Sukumaran is considering other legal options.

Both men have undergone extensive rehabilitation and I will continue to make representations to my counterpart, just as Australia will continue to use all diplomatic options to seek a stay of execution.  Again, the Australian Government respectfully requests the President to review their pleas for clemency.

It is important that all legal processes are allowed to run their course. We respect the decision of the Indonesian Government to await the outcomes of ongoing legal challenges.
