Bali Nine: Andrew Chan Funeral, ‘I Fought The Good Fight And Came Out A Winner In God’s Eyes’
The Inquisitor - almost 3 years
Today, Bali Nine member Andrew Chan was laid to rest in Sydney, Australia. Chan was recently executed after spending nearly ten years in jail for attempting to smuggle heroin. The service was live-streamed via Andrew Chan’s website so people who couldn’t attend in person could watch. Present for the service were Chan’s family, his new wife Febyanti Herewila-Chan, family members of fellow Australian death row inmate Myuran Sukumaran, and Chan’s lawyer Julian McMahon.
After several songs were sung, Andrew Chan’s brother, Michael, spoke of his younger brother. He described how people can change, of how the way a person departs the world can define them. He also vowed to continue in his fight against the death penalty.
“Andrew was a great son, brother, uncle and in his remaining months as a pastor he was always thinking of others and their well-being… People deserve a second chance in life, people make mistakes and in life and deserve a second chance.”
