The death row convicts will be executed "immediately after" the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Mr Mohammad Rum, a spokesman for the attorney-general's office, told AFP, last month but he did not give a precise date.
Mr Rum did not say who would face the firing squad, but Indonesia has been waging a campaign against narcotics and in 2015 executed 14 drug convicts, mostly foreigners, sparking international outrage.
