Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has welcomed the released of Schapelle Corby, who has been released on parole after serving nine years in a Balinese jail.
"The decision by Indonesia's minister for law and human rights is welcomed," Ms Bishop told the Australian.
"I understand that now the decision to grant parole has been made is a matter for the authorities to determine the time of the release but I hope that she's now given some privacy as she gets her life back together," she added.
Convicted Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has been released on parole after serving nine years in a Balinese prison.
Corby - who has always protested her innocence - was convicted of smuggling 4.2 kilograms (9 pounds) of marijuana onto Bali and sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2005.
In 2010, she asked for clemency, citing her poor mental state. Two years later in 2012, Indonesia's president cut her sentence by five years.Corby, 35, will have to stay in Bali and cannot return to Australia until 2017.
A security guard died after being strangled to death by a huge python near a luxury hotel on Indonesia's resort island of Bali, police said.
The incident happened early this morning when the 15 foot python was slithering across the road near the Bali Hyatt hotel, closed for renovations.
The victim, Ambar Arianto Mulyo, was a 59-year-old security guard at a nearby restaurant. He had offered to help capture the snake, which had been spotted several times near the hotel, assistant manager Agung Bawa said.
The security man managed to capture the snake's head and tail, and lifted it on to his shoulders, but the python wrapped itself around his body and strangled him, Bawa said.
The snake then escaped into nearby bushes, and police have not located it. Bawa said:
"It happened so fast. We were sad because we could not do anything to help him."
A human rights charity has called for the Government to "step in" and help a British grandmother who lost her appeal against a death sentence for trafficking drugs into Bali.
This will be devastating for Lindsay and her family, following months of torment throughout the appeals process.
Without a lawyer to seek the new evidence needed for the Courts to re-review her sentence and prepare her clemency petition, Lindsay faces extremely difficult decisions.
We hope that the British government will step in to ensure that Lindsay is at least provided with a lawyer to help her avoid execution.
The Foreign Office said it would "consider how to support any application for judicial review or clemency" that Lindsay Sandiford makes after she lost her appeal against a death sentence for drug trafficking.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "We are aware that Lindsay Sandiford's appeal to the Indonesian Supreme Court has been denied.
"We will continue to provide consular assistance to Lindsay Sandiford and her family at this difficult time."
A British grandmother has lost her appeal against a death sentence for drugs trafficking in Bali, a spokesman for the Supreme Court in Jakata confirmed.
A three-judge panel at the court unanimously rejected Lindsay Sandiford's appeal, Ridwan Mansur said.
The judges agreed with the decision taken by Bali's Denpasar district court, which sentenced Sandiford to death, and the island's high court, which rejected her first appeal.
Under Indonesian law, Sandiford still has the opportunity to seek a judicial review of her case before appealing for a presidential pardon.
Lindsay Sandiford was sentenced to death after being found guilty of drug trafficking in January.
Sandiford's alleged accomplice, Julian Ponder, from Brighton, was jailed for six years in Bali after being cleared of drugs smuggling but convicted of possessing drugs. He remains in jail.
His partner, Rachel Dougall, also from Brighton, received a one-year jail term and has now returned to the UK after serving her sentence.
Paul Beales, a long-time Bali resident, was sentenced to four years in prison for possession of hashish. He remains in jail.
The Foreign Office is seeking confirmation that a British grandmother has lost her appeal against a death sentence for trafficking drugs into the resort island of Bali.
We are aware of unconfirmed reports that the decision of the Indonesian Supreme Court has been announced. We are seeking confirmation of the decision from the Indonesian Supreme Court.
We will continue to provide consular assistance to Lindsay Sandiford and her family at this difficult time.
