Lawyers for 2 Australians facing execution in Indonesia seek to overturn president's decision

Lawyers for two Australians facing execution in Indonesia on drug smuggling charges say they will challenge the president's rejection of their clemency appeals.

Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran are expected to go before a firing squad this month after being convicted of being the masterminds of a group of nine Australians arrested in 2005 on charges of attempting to smuggle 8.3 kilograms (18.3 pounds) of heroin from Bali to Australia.

President Joko Widodo has rejected their appeals for clemency.

Their lawyer, Todung Mulya Lubis, said Monday that they will file a complaint in an administrative court challenging Widodo's decision, arguing that it was made without consideration of the two men's remorse and rehabilitation.
