Australia floats prisoner swap to save Indonesia pair

Indonesian police escort Australian death row inmate Myuran Sukumaran as he arrives on Cilacap in central Java on March 4, 2015 on his way to a maximum security prisonAustralia on Thursday proposed a prisoner swap with Indonesia in an 11th-hour bid to save two drug smugglers facing execution, while voicing “deep concern” about Jakarta’s international reputation if they are killed. Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, the ringleaders of the so-called “Bali Nine” drug-trafficking gang, could be shot within days after being moved on Wednesday to the Indonesian island where they are due to face a firing squad. Authorities must give convicts 72 hours’ notice before they are executed and in a last-ditch effort to save them, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop suggested a prisoner swap.
