Poll: Should countries be allowed to execute foreign citizens?

Two Australian citizens are currently facing this situation in Indonesia.

AUSTRALIA IS SCRAMBLING for an eleventh-hour appeal to stop the execution of two of its citizens in Indonesia.

The two men were sentenced to death in 2006 for drug trafficking.

The Australians’ legal team, in their latest bid to avoid execution, are arguing against the president’s decision to reject their pleas for clemency, saying he failed to assess their rehabilitation or give reasons for his decision.

Capital punishment was abolished in Australia during the 1980s.

We want to know what you think about this kind of situation: Should countries be allowed to execute foreign citizens?

Poll Results:

No (3476)
Only for very serious crimes (2560)
Yes (1876)
I don't know (312)
