Bali Nine Member Nguyen Dies In Hospital From Cancer

Tan Duc Thanh Nguyen, a member of the infamous Bali Nine, has died after a battle with cancer.

Nguyen, 34, passed away in a Jakarta hospital, media outlets reported on Tuesday night.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed they are providing assistance to the family of an Australian man who died from a "terminal illness".

Nguyen was serving life in prison for his role in attempting to smuggle heroin from Bali into Australia in 2005.

Nguyen is the third member of the Bali Nine to die after Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran were executed by firing squad in 2015.

Renae Lawrence has been the only Bali Nine member to have her jail time cut after receiving a reduction on her 20-year sentence in 2017.

The remaining Bali Nine members will spend life behind bars in Indonesia.
