     News: Indonesia delays planned execution of Bali bombers

    Latest NewsIndonesia delays planned execution of Bali bombers
    Monsters and Critics.com, UK

    Jakarta - Indonesia has delayed the scheduled executions of three Muslim militants convicted of carrying out the 2002 Bali bombings, which killed more than 200 people, after their defence attorneys announced they would file a final appeal, a government spokesman said Monday. The condemned men - Imam Samurda and brothers Amrozi Nurhasyim and Ali Gufron - were among more than 30 people convicted in the bombings, many of whom were believed to be members of Jemaah Islamiyah, a South-East Asian offshoot of al-Qaeda. Their defence team plans to file a final appeal, known as a judicial review, with the Indonesian Supreme Court, which prompted the Attorney General's Office to delay Tuesday's scheduled executions by firing squad, said I Wayan Pasek Suarta, spokesman for the office. 'It's a legal process, and we respect the process,' he told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa. Defence attorneys said they would demand that the convictions be thrown out because the anti-terrorism law used to prosecute the three men was applied retroactively. The Jakarta government had pushed through the legislation in the weeks after the bombing, which killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists, at two nightspots in Bali's Kuta Beach area. 'We'll file an appeal on the basis that the Attorney General's Office has violated the constitution because, since the beginning, they were being tried on a retroactive law,' defence attorney Mahendra Datta told dpa. In 2004, Indonesia's Constitutional Court ruled that ...



    the Attorney General's Office had illegally applied the law retroactively but surprisingly upheld the convictions. Suarta rejected defence claims that retrials should be held and said he was confident the final appeal would be thrown out. 'We will see how the legal process goes,' he said. 'Our office is ready.' Nurhasyim, Gufron and Samurda confessed to carrying out the bombings, using a car bomb and a suicide bomber, and requested to be executed so they could be seen as martyrs. None of the men has expressed remorse for the killings. Indonesia has had a rash of terrorist attacks blamed on Jemaah Islamiyah, including the simultaneous bombings of dozens of Christian churches, a five-star hotel and the Australian Embassy. © 2006 dpa - Deutsche Presse-Agentur
