Dead Men and Women Walking

Press Reports Suggest Government Moving Steadily Towards Execution of the Three Bali Bombers. Execution of 16 Convicted Drug Felons also Promised.


(11/12/2006)

Indonesian press reports over the past week suggest that the execution of the three Bali bombers, condemned to death before a firing squad, may take place in the near future.

The Denpasar (Bali) Prosecutor's Office has formally requested the Justice and Human Rights Minister for permission to proceed with the execution, according to a statement made a representative of the Attorney General's Office, I Wayan Pasek.

In a departure from standard procedure in which those sentenced to death are normally executed in the region where their crime was committed, it appears that the 3 men will instead die on remote Nusa Kumbangan Island, the location of Indonesia's highest security prison and facility where they are currently being held in isolation from other prisoners. While the exact dates and location of the execution are a closely guarded secret, normal procedure dictates that State Officials will inform the families of the condemned men when the execution become imminent and then, at any time within days or week of that notification, the men will be brought in the early morning hours from their cells and taken to a secluded field or empty beach, tied to a pole, and shot through the heart by a firing squad.

Following confirmation of death by a medical examiner, the bodies of the three bombers - Amrozi, Imam Samudra and Ali Ghufron will then be afforded a courtesy denied their bombing victims and released intact to their families for burial.

Barring a promised last minute appeal to the Supreme Court by the attorneys for the convicted bombers, the execution could take place in the very near future as the families of the men have all signaled that they will not legally contest the death order of the Indonesian Courts.



Execution of Drug Offenders Looming

Bali's former Chief of Police and now Head of the National Anti-Narcotics Police Team, Made Mangku Pastika, has publicly called for the execution of 16 of 43 people now housed on death row for drug offenses. Speaking before a group celebrating the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking on Saturday, June 24, 2006, Pastika called on State Prosecutors to complete the decision of the Indonesian Courts for those who have exhausted all possible avenues of appeal.

That the end for the 16 convicted drug felons is near was made more certain in the week following Pastika's call when President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono made a public statement that his office would not approve clemency from convicted drug offenders now on death row.

Pasek, a spokesman for the Attorney General's office, further sealed the fate of the 16 convicts when he announced last week in response to Pastika's call that he could now "clarify that 16 men and women . . .will soon face the death penalty" in connection with their drug convictions.
