JAKARTA: Other than Pakistan's Zulfiqar Ali, Indonesia on Friday executed four drug convicts by firing squad, an official said, ignoring international pressure and desperate pleas from relatives to halt the execution. 

Ali’s lawyers at the Justice Project Pakistan said that he was not executed as per schedule. Some reports suggested that his case will be reviewed.

The news proved fatal and perterbing for anti-shia forces across Pakistan. One of the leading Saudi-funded newspaper 'Roznama Ummat' instead of appreciating the news as 'Justice Prevailed' they angled it showing their anti-shiite sentiments.

They printed that the Pakistani Embassy in Indonesia have Shia officials who saved their shia brethren from a smuggling case, smearing the image of Pakistan.

It is no secret that there were concerns about legal irregularities in the cases of some facing imminent execution, with Amnesty International citing “systematic flaws” in several trials and noting a handful of clemency appeals were still pending.

These included Ali, whom rights groups say was beaten into confessing to the crime of heroin possession, leading to his 2005 death sentence.

The 52-year-old had been arrested from Bogor on drug trafficking charges in November 2004 and sentenced by a district court in 2005. The sentence was upheld by a higher court in 2006 while two subsequent judicial review pleas, first in 2008 and then in 2013, were turned down.

On Wednesday, Pakistan’s Ambassador to Indonesia Aqil Naseem had cited findings of an internal investigation which found “serious breaches of a fair trial” and urged that the case be reviewed.
