Sukumaran and Chan Families Deserve More Help, Says Wife of Death Row Man

The wife of a man still on death row says, the families of eight people executed in Indonesia in April deserve continued support, as capital punishment means a life-long sentence for them.
Sabine Atlaoui has recalled a terrible three months that began when her husband Serge was named on a list of convicts to face the firing squad alongside Australians Myuran Sukumaran, Andrew Chan and others.
As they were given 72 hours notice of their executions, the Frenchman was removed from the list and able to pursue legal appeals.
Atlaoui told the Asian Regional Congress on the Death Penalty the burden of capital punishment falls to innocent families, who must endure a lifetime of suffering.
