(8/9/2014)

The decision by the Indonesian Department of Prisons and the Minister of Justice and Human Rights to grant an early release to M. Choliy or “Yahya” - the man dubbed the courier of Bali Bomb II has prompted the provincial administration of Bali to express its unhappiness.

Beritabali.com reports that the deputy-governor of Bali, I Ketut Sudikerta (shown in illustration) said he sympathizes with Balinese who feel disappointed with the decision to free Cholily.

He reminded all that the bombings in Bali still linger painfully in the memory and daily lives of the Balinese. “The Bali Bomb has such an extraordinary impact. Bali’s tourism was left in shambles. We all suffered (from the bombing). The Bali bomb damaged us, the people of Bali,” complained Sudikerta speaking at the governor’s office on Thursday, August 7, 2014.

At the same time, Sudikerta, who also serves as the chairman of the Golkar Party in Bali, declared he would not interfere in the legal process, inasmuch as Cholily’s release meets all the legal requirements.

The deputy-governor said, however, any plans to release the terrorist should have been weighed against a public perception of justice. “Consideration should be given to the psychological impact on the Balinese who suffered emotionally from the Bombing, especially those who were victims of the 2nd Bali bombing either materially or spiritually.”

M. Cholily, also known as Yahya, was conditionally released from the Malang Penitentiary on August 6, 2014. He was originally sentenced to 18 years in prison in 2005 by the Denpasar District Court for his role in delivering the explosives used to detonate bombs in three location in Bali in on October 1, 2005 that left 20 dead and more than 100 people injured.

Cholily was also a known associate of Malaysian terrorist Dr. Azhari who planned the second Bali bombing. The now-released terrorist providing a secret sanctuary for Azhari in Malang.

Meanwhile, Cholily says he was not "actually" involved in the second Bali bombing and will therefore not apologize for having killed foreigners. He insists he only assisted in hiding the bombing’s mastermind, Dr. Azhari.

Cholily was released after having only served 9 years of this 18-year sentence.

Am anti-terror law passed in 2012 would have prevented the early release of Cholily, requiring that two-thirds of his sentence be served before any sentence remission could be granted. But this rule, introduced after Choilily's conviction, could not be applied retroactively,

The 2005 bombings took place in Kuta Center and 2 beachside restaurants in Jimbaran.
