Compass - Life and Death
Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran are two of the three 'Bali Nine' facing execution for drug trafficking. They live each day in hope and fear knowing it could be their last. In this compelling Compass episode their families speak for the first time, along with their lawyer Melbourne barrister Julian McMahon.
He represented Nguyen Tuong Van, the Australian hanged for drug offences in Singapore. He and Van's mother recall the last weeks of that young man's life, and grief since. Through the parallel story lines of two separate cases, this program examines how the death penalty extends punishment to the families and friends of the condemned.
