A mentally ill Brazilian executed in Indonesia this week was delusional and oblivious to his fate until the final moments before he faced a firing squad, his lawyer and priest said Thursday."I'm not sure whether he really 100 percent understood he would be executed," he said, adding that Gularte was adamant that the water on their prison island was poisoned.The lawyer said he tried to ask Gularte about his final requests, but the Brazilian responded with amusement. Gunawan quoted Gularte as asking.Gularte was arrested in 2004 while trying to enter Indonesia with six kilograms (13.2 pounds) of cocaine in his surfing gear.Indonesia's execution of the drug convicts -- Gularte, two Australians, four Nigerians and one Indonesian -- has sparked a storm of international protest.Burrows said Gularte had been hearing voices in his head.
