Brazilian drug trafficker had ‘no idea’ about his execution
Rodrigo Gularte, who has been caught entering Indonesia in 2004 with six kilograms of cocaine hidden in surf boards and who was executed in Indonesia, was clueless about his death until the final moments.
According to Father Charlie Burrows, a local priest who accompanied Gularte in his final hours, due to the 42-year-old’s mental illness, he did not know he was about to be killed.
The Brazilian was lined up among eight others and shot shortly after midnight on Wednesday morning.
The Brazilian ambassador had pleaded for him to be spared on the humanitarian grounds, due to his schizophrenia.
His family presented several doctors’ reports to the Indonesian authorities attesting to his mental illness and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff had made personal pleas on his behalf.
