Jakarta (ANTARA News) 15/10/2017-

The Indonesian government has managed to successfully secure the release of two Indonesians on death row in Saudi Arabia and repatriated them on Saturday.

"The two Indonesian citizens, identified by their initials as DT and AHB, arrived today in Indonesia through the Soekarno-Hatta Airport," Director of Indonesian Citizens Protection of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lalu Muhammad Iqbal noted here on a message received on Saturday.

The two Indonesians were released after serving their prison term and caning sentence at a womens penitentiary in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Iqbal revealed that DT and AHB came to Saudi before 2002 as illegal migrant workers in Jeddah.

Both had lived in an illegal settlement in Jeddah along with other illegal migrant workers.

The legal case started in May 2002 when a body of an Indonesian woman named AA was found dismembered into two pieces in the settlement.

A Thai, the victims husband, was freed from accusation charges since he was not found guilty.

Meanwhile, DT and AHB were named as suspects in a case, as they escaped from the settlement.

The two Indonesians were sentenced to death by the General Court of Jeddah on April 12, 2010.

The Indonesian government had provided legal assistance to the two Indonesians since the beginning of the case by appointing a lawyer, Al Zahrani.

A judicial review submitted by Al Zahrani was approved by the Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia, and on August 24, 2014, the court changed the verdict from death sentence to five-year imprisonment and 300 lashes.
