Migrant Care says Indonesian govt must issue a protest note over execution of Misrin.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Migrant Care Executive Director Wahyu Susilo has urged the Indonesian government to take stern measures against Saudi Arabia for carrying out the execution of an Indonesian migrant worker for murder. He assessed Indonesia should issue a protest note over the execution.

"The Indonesian government should issue a protest note over the execution of Zaini Misrin, an Indonesian migrant worker from Bangkalan, Madura, East Java, in Saudi Arabia," Wahyu Susilo, stated here on Sunday.

Susilo remarked that Misrin was executed on Sunday (March 18).

He stated that Saudi Arabia did not notify Indonesia about the execution either through the consulate general in Jeddah or the foreign ministry.

"Saudi Arabia has violated the principles of international law by failing to notify Indonesia about the execution," Susilo revealed.

Migrant Care also urges Indonesia to use political and diplomatic resources to release Indonesian migrant workers who are on death row.

Currently, 21 Indonesians are on death row in Saudi Arabia.

Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry on Monday revealed that the Saudi Government did not notify the Indonesian Government on the execution of Zaini Misrin. Misrin was sentenced to death for allegedly murdering his employer and was executed on Sunday at around 11.30 a.m. local time.

"Indonesian Government did not receive any notification before the execution of Misrin," Director of Indonesian Citizens Protection of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lalu Muhammad Iqbal, stated at a press briefing here on Monday.

It is understandable since there is no obligation for the Saudi Government to notify foreign representatives about any execution, Iqbal revealed.

"However, as two countries sharing good relationship, it would have been appropriate if the Saudi Government had notified the Indonesian Government about the execution through its representatives," Iqbal explained.
