Indonesia's Supreme Court has turned down final appeals from two death row prisoners who are among 10 drug convicts awaiting executions by firing squads.

The appeals for judicial review by Serge Areski Atlaoui from France and Martin Anderson of Ghana were rejected at hearings on Tuesday, said court panelist Suhadi, who uses a single name.

Atlaoui's appeal was rejected because the three-judge panel found no mistake in the previous verdicts by lower courts, while Anderson failed to present new evidence to support his appeal, Suhadi said Wednesday. Read more Ghanaian, Eight Others To Face Execution In Indonesia

Appeals have been exhausted for all but one of the 10 convicts. One is Indonesian, and the other foreigners are Australian, Nigerian, Brazilian and Filipino.
