Bali Nine lawyers launch rare appeal to save their lives
LAWYERS for the two Australians due to be executed in Indonesia this month are launching a rare challenge against the Indonesian president's refusal to grant them pardons.
Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, the ringleaders of the so-called heroin trafficking group Bali Nine, are due to face a firing squad before the end of February after they were denied presidential pardons.
Their lawyer Todung Mulya Lubis said their "last chance" was to challenge president Joko Widodo's decision in an administrative court - a move that has rarely been attempted.
"We have done almost everything and now we are planning to file another claim to the administrative court in Jakarta," Mr Mulya said.
"We will challenge the rejection of the clemency issued by the president, or made by the president."
