JAKARTA---A senior Indonesian official
warned Australia to tone down its criticism
of the planned executions of two convicted
Australian drug traffickers, saying that Can-
berra should be grateful to Indonesia for
keeping asylum seekers away from Aus-
The minister for political, legal and security
affairs, Tedjo Edy Purdjianto, said at a seminar
Tuesday that if about 10,000 migrants who
have been stopped in Indonesia from reaching
Australia were allowed to proceed, "there will
be a human tsunami in Australia."
He criticised Australia s continuing pressure
on Indonesia to spare the lives of the two
men facing firing squads along with eight
other convicts---seven foreigners and an
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott
responded yesterday by saying he isn t picking
fights with anyone.
He said he understood that Indonesian offi-
cials wanted to crack down on drug crime in
"But these two individuals, because they re
reformed, have now become an asset in
Indonesia s fight against drug crime, and that s
why I think it would be counterproductive to
execute them," Abbott said.
Australians Andrew Chan, 31, and Myuran
Sukumaran, 33, were flown last week from
a prison on the resort island of Bali to the
Nusakambangan Island prison off the main
island of Java, where executions are carried
out. The firing squads will execute the 10
simultaneously in pairs, so the execution date
will not be set until all of them have exhausted
Chan and Sukumaran led an Australian
smuggling group dubbed "the Bali Nine."
They were arrested in 2005 after a tip-off
from Australian police while trying to smuggle
more than eight kilogrammes (18 pounds) of
heroin from Bali to Sydney. The rest were
sentenced to prison terms.
In their final attempt to avoid executions,
lawyers for the pair appealed to the High
Administrative Court, which was scheduled
to rule on the case today. They argued that
President Jokowi Widodo s refusal of clemency
did not provide proper and individual con-
sideration to their applications.
A Jakarta court dismissed the appeal earlier,
ruling that clemency is a prerogative of the
Also, yesterday, the Grand Mufti of Australia
Ibrahim Abu Mohamed met with Indonesia s
Minister of Religious Affairs Lukman Hakim
Saifuddin and other Islamic figures to plea
"with respect and humility for mercy for the
lives of two young Australians."
Indonesia executed six drug convicts includ-
ing foreigners in January, drawing protests
from Brazil and the Netherlands, which with-
drew their ambassadors after their citizens
were denied clemency appeals. More than
130 people are on death row, including 57
drug convicts. AP
SLEMAN---An advert for a house in Indonesia
has gone viral online after the woman selling it
offered to throw in an unusual extra feature for
free---her hand in marriage.
The Internet ad reads for the most part like a
regular house listing, saying that the single-storey
property has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a
parking space and a fish pond.
But it also proposes to buyers a "rare offer"---
"when you buy this house, you can ask the owner
to marry you," longside a picture of Wina Lia, a
40-year-old widow and beauty salon owner, leaning
against a car in front of the house.
The ad said that terms and conditions apply,
and notes the offer is "for serious buyers and non-
negotiable." The house in Sleman, on the island
of Java, is on the market for 999 million rupiah
News of the offer quickly spread among Internet
users in social media-crazy Indonesia.
Boldies99, a user on popular online forum
Kaskus, said Lia was "quite smart---even though
the house will be sold, she will remain the owner."
The police "came to verify the news as they
consider it as an improper advertisement. But I
explained to them that it was not my idea," she
The mother of two explained that she had asked
a friend who was a property agent to help her find
a buyer---and in the process a husband---but she
had expected him to pass on the news to a limited
number of people, not put an ad online. AFP
PITTSBURGH---A man convicted of child
molestation has admitted mailing a threat-
ening letter from a western Pennsylvania
prison to President Barack Obama---albeit
to the wrong address.
Joseph Savage pleaded guilty yesterday in
federal court to counts of threatening the
president and threatening the president s fam-
ily.Prosecutors say Savage was awaiting trial
in Fayette County Prison in October 2012
when he sent a letter threatening to "torture
and murder" the president and harm a mem-
ber of the president s family.
The letter was mailed to 1400 Pennsylvania
Avenue in Washington. The White House is
at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but received
the letter anyway.
Savage is serving 12 1/2 to 25 years on con-
victions of making terroristic threats, aggra-
vated indecent assault on a child and cor-
ruption of minors. AP
