Indonesia Executes 8, Australia recalls diplomat

P4260361-1.jpg

On the night of April 28 Indonesia executed eight men, shooting them through the heart, as punishment for their various crimes.  two of the men, Mayuran Sukamaran and Andrew Chan – of the Bali nine – were executed despite pleas from the Australian government and people. 

Some have pointed to the response from the Australian government and lack of receptiveness from the Indonesian government as a new low in the relationship between the two countries. 

However others have pointed to fundemental differences in the two nations outlooks – and political pressures – as feeding the execution process. 

Panorama covered the rollout following the executions – and what it means for the bilateral relationship.
