Terrorism-Related Offenses Not Resulting in Death.
An attack aboard an aircraft, resulting in the destruction of the aircraft, is punishable by death. Under Articles 6, 9 and 14 of Law No. 15 of 2003 on combating terrorism, creating (or planning or inciting others to create) a “widespread atmosphere of terror” by taking liberty or property or damaging state, environmental or public resources, or facilitating or attempting to facilitate terrorism, is punishable by death. (Article 9, addressing facilitation, is “virtually a reproduction of Indonesia’s Emergency Law No. 12 of 1951 on the Possession of Firearms and Explosives.”) Under Articles 14 and 27 of Law No. 9 of 2008 on a law relating to chemical weapons, developing, producing, obtaining, transferring or using chemical weapons, or involvement in or incitement of the aforementioned, is punishable by death.

Reports indicate that Article 2 of Presidential Stipulation No. 5 of 1959 permitted the death penalty for crimes endangering food and housing. Portions of the laws and decrees of 1959 (apparently dictated by President Sukarno) may no longer be good law and we have been unable to confirm whether Stipulation No. 5 is good law.

In its first set of Concluding Observations issued for Indonesia in July 2013, the Committee regretted that executions had resumed and that death sentences were imposed for drug offenses, which do not meet the threshold of “most serious crimes” under Article 6 of the ICCPR. The Committee recommended not only that Indonesia amend its legislation so that narcotics-related offenses are not punishable by death, but also that Indonesia commute all the death sentences it had imposed for drug offenses. The Committee also advised Indonesia to reinstate a de facto moratorium on execution and to consider abolishing the death penalty.

Reports indicate that under the Criminal Procedure Code, the Indonesian Advocate’s Code of Ethics (Law No. 18 of 2003), the Law on Human Rights (No. 39 of 1999) and Law on Judicial Power (No. 14 of 1970), all capital defendants are entitled to an attorney immediately upon arrest and throughout the prosecution, and attorneys are obliged to provide free legal assistance to poor defendants. The Code of Criminal Procedure specifically provides that defendants facing the death penalty must be assigned legal counsel by the official concerned “at all stages of examination in the criminal justice process.”

In practice, these rights are often not respected, especially during investigation and pre-trial stages, and thus a fair trial may not be guaranteed. In 2004, Amnesty International reported that some defendants are denied representation during clemency proceedings and in the week before execution. There were more recent reports from Papua that defendants did not have access to attorneys of their choosing and that authorities denied them adequate time and facilities to prepare a defense. Police and guards may restrict attorneys’ access to their clients, coercing bribes to allow defendants their legal rights.

In 2012, British national Lindsay Sandiford, who faced drug smuggling charges and was later sentenced to death, was appointed three different Indonesian lawyers, none of whom reportedly provided her with effective representation. Her first lawyer, appointed by the Indonesian police, allegedly stole money from her and made no effort to investigate her case or represent her interests in police interrogations. She was also unrepresented during at least two early court hearings because she was unable to pay for a lawyer herself.

Some NGO lawyer associations are effective at providing representation to indigents where to partially compensate for the failures of the legal aid system. In 2011, Jakarta Legal Aid handled 959 cases altogether.
