Indonesia: The 1965 prisoners: how many more will die in jail?

, Index number: ASA 21/043/1996

14 men have been imprisoned in Indonesia since 1965, following unfair trials for their alleged involvement in the 1965 coup attempt. Many are prisoners of conscience, all are frail due to age and most are suffering from serious ill-health. Many others have already died in prison. Five of the fourteen are still held under sentence of death. Amnesty International is calling on the government to release immediately all prisoners of conscience, to commute the death sentences of Asep Suryaman, Sukatno, Bungkus, Nataneal Marsudi and Isnanto, and to ensure that all sick prisoners receive immediate medical treatment.
