The Death Penalty Project, in partnership with Community Legal Aid Institute, LBH Masyarakat, commissioned The Death Penalty Research Unit (DPRU) at the University of Oxford, in association with University Centre of Excellence HIV/AIDS Research Centre-HPSI at Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia (AJCU), to conduct research on the use of the death penalty to deter drug related crime.
This briefing note summaries the key findings of the study, which draws on interviews with 57 prisoners convicted of drug offences. It is the first stage of a larger project, which will interview those convicted of drug offences and sentenced to death or life in prisons across Indonesia.
