2015 – The Year of the Drug Execution

Following up after a bit of delay due to other life issues:

2015 is over, and it turns out to have been a year where 552 people were executed for drug related crimes – 41% of the total people executed.  Most of these were in Iran and Saudi Arabia.  But, Indonesia made waves with 16 executions in two batches in January and April, which included mostly foreigners, including two of the Bali Nine from Australia.
