On Friday, March 15, 2013, a 42-year-old Nigerian was taken from his prison cell near Jakarta and transported to a small offshore island where a firing squad hung a reflective sign around his neck and shot him dead.

The executed narcotics smuggler and former policeman Adami Wilson Bin Adam was arrested in 2003 in possession of 1 kilogram of heroin into Indonesia.

With Adam’s execution also died hopes that Indonesia was moving towards abandoning judicial executions and, in so doing, would spare the lives of Myuran Sukamaran and Andrew Chan – two Australians now sitting on death row at Bali’s Kerobokan Prison.

The two Australians, members of the infamous “Bali Nine,” were arrested in 2005 for their roles in an attempt to smuggle 8.3 kilograms of heroin out of Indonesia via Bali’s airport.

The execution of the Nigerian is the first of a promised 10 condemned people scheduled to be executed in 2013 – all of whom have exhausted any further legal avenues of appeal, including appeals for clemency to the Indonesian President.

While prison authorities advise a condemned individual only 72 hours prior to his or her death, it is widely supposed that no one currently housed in a Bali prison will be shot in 2013.

In total, there are 111 prisoners still sitting on death row in Indonesia where large elements of the law enforcement community and Islamic religious leaders from Nahdlatul Ulama lobby for the continuing execution of those convicted of capital crimes.
