Indonesia court rejects appeal of Frenchman facing execution

Indonesia – An Indonesian court on Monday denied the final appeal of a French national facing execution for drug offenses.

The administrative court in Jakarta said it could not overturn a presidential rejection of clemency for Serge Atlaoui, citing a lack of judicial authority. His case has drawn national attention in France, which vigorously opposes the death penalty. Indonesia takes a hardline stance against drug crimes and resumed executions in 2013.
