Blindfolded Justice

Barring Last Minute Legal Appeal, Bali Bombers will Be Shot by Firing Squad on August 22nd.


Amrozi, Iman Samudra and Ali Gufron – the three convicted masterminds of the October 12, 2002 Bali bombing that killed 202 people – may be taken from their cells before dawn on the morning of Tuesday, August 22, 2006 and brought to a desolate beach on Nusa Kambangan Island where they will be blindfolded and shot by a police firing squad.

As required by Indonesian law, the families of the three men were formally notified of the imminent execution of the three men in order to allow final communication with the condemned men.

While the three men have steadfastly refused to exercise a final last-ditch appeal which would further delay their execution, their lawyers are threatening to unilaterally challenge the legality of the retroactive application of the new anti-terror law for a crime committed prior to the legislation's introduction.

The execution of the three, whenever it finally does occur, will perhaps bring some degree of closure to the families of the bombing victims, including the 88 Australians who died in the blast.

While vehement in their opposition to the capital punishment – particularly when applied on foreign soil against Australian nationals, the Australian Federal Government has tempered it opposition in the current instance with Australian Foreign Affair Minister Alexander Downer saying, "the Bali bombers were tried and convicted by Indonesian courts and found guilty of the most heinous of crimes." As a result, while Australia maintains its philosophical opposition to the death penalty, it will not protest the execution of the Bali bombers.

When executed, the bombers' remains will be handed over by authorities to the men's families for final burial. In doing so, Amrozi, Iman Samudra and Ali Gufron will be afforded a final dignity they so cruelly denied their victims on October 12, 2002.
