Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose accuses Indonesian president of cowardice after unsuccessful appeal to stop executions


Guns N 'Roses frontman Axl Rose has reacted on social media about executions of the two Australians who were sentenced to death in Indonesia.


Rose posted some tweets after it was announced that Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran were executed early Wednesday morning at a jail on the Indonesian island of Nusakambangan.

Also drug trafficker Mary Jane Fiesta Veloso was sentenced to death, but spared at the eleventh hour after new information emerged about her case.
Axl Rose tweeted: "It's deeply troubling President Widodo ignoring International outcry went thru w/8 of the executions (sic)"

"Let's pray Miss Veloso's reprieve is permanent."

The singer continued: "Widodo's refusal 2 postpone the executions until all legal challenges n' investigations of corruption r resolved is inexcusable."

"4 Widodo 2 b out of the country during his big statement refusing 2 take calls or read any last minute pleas 4 the condemned is cowardice."

"The People of Indonesia deserve better," Rose concluded.
