Seven of 10 death row convicts placed in isolation cells on Nusakambangan prison Island will be executed on Tuesday, lawyer Utomo Karim said after visiting his client, Nigerian Raheem Agbaje, on Saturday.

"Yes, I have received the notification, as has Raheem, that the execution will be held on Tuesday," he said at the Wijaya Pura Pier in Cilacap, Central Java.

"All convicts have been placed in isolation cells. In total, there are seven convicts [to be executed on Tuesday]."

In total, 10 have been placed in isolation cells: Zainal Abidin (from Indonesia), Serge Atresi Atlaoui (France), Rodrigo Gularte (Brazil), Silvester Obiekwe Nwaolise alias Mustofa and Okwudili Oyatanze (Nigeria), Martin Anderson alias Belo (Ghana), and Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran (Australia) and Mary Jane Veloso (Phillipines), in addition to Raheem.

When asked who of the 10 were not scheduled for execution, Utomo said he had not noticed Atlaoui's name on the list.

"There are seven names on the list, but I don't remember who they were," he said.
