Ricky Gunawan

Ricky Gunawan is a human rights lawyer and Director of LBH Masyarakat (Community Legal Aid Institute). LBH Masyarakat is a frontline human rights organisation that provide free legal services for people facing the death penalty or execution.

Amnesty International recently released its 2016 report on the death penalty, finding that while executions decreased in Indonesia, at least 60 new death sentences were handed down. Ricky Gunawan and Raynov Tumorang Pamintori write that while there is plenty to be concerned about, there are some encouraging signs of change.
