Howard may raise Bali 9 at APEC

15th Aug 07

In response to questions from Australian Greens Senator Kerry Nettle, the Minister representing the Prime

Minister Senator Nick Minchin indicated that the Prime Minister may ask for clemency for the Bali 9 when

President Yudhoyono visits Sydney next month for APEC.

“Van Nguyen’s fate demonstrates that the Government must not leave its appeals for clemency until it is too

late” Senator Nettle said.

“John Howard needs to act now.

"The Greens will continue to call for clemency for the Bali 9 because the death penalty is always wrong.

"The Greens will continue to question why the Australian Federal Police allowed people to be arrested in Bali

and face the death penalty instead of arresting them in Australia," Senator Nettle said.
