Indonesia's Supreme Court sentenced nine men, including Chinese, French and Dutch nationals, to death for producing millions of pills of the illegal recreational drug Ecstasy.
"The Supreme Court considers the Frenchman and Dutchman as experts," Supreme Court spokesman Djoko Sarwoko told The Associated Press. "If we let them be, they would be able to produce in another place, or teach others their skills. This is a threat to the next generation."
