Time and Patience Running Out for Bali Bombers

Indonesia's Attorney General Gives Convicted Bali Bombers Until End of Year to File any Appeal. In the Absence of an Appeal, Execution to Move Ahead.


Indonesia's Attorney General has given the three Bali bombers a deadline of December 31, 2006 to file any judicial reviews of their death sentences. Quoted by Tempo Interaktif, Attorney General Abdul Rahman Saleh said, "if, by that time (the end of the year), they do not file a formal appeal, we will move ahead with the execution of the three."

The three Bali bombers - Amrozi, Imam Samudra, and Ali Ghufron are all under death sentences imposed by the Bali Courts for their pivotal roles in the October 12, 2002 bombing of two Bali night spots that resulted in 202 deaths.

The Indonesian Attorney General has ordered his subordinates to closely monitor any possible filing of an appeal with the Denpasar (Bali) District Court, the court of record for death sentences given the Three. Expressing his personal frustration with various delaying tactics engaged in by the Bali Bombers, Saleh warned, "no convicted person can interfere in the carrying out of an execution."

The Attorney General's comments were made following an announcement by the "Muslin Defense Team" – the name adopted by the Three's team of defense lawyers, that they would file an appeal sometime in 2007. Denying that waiting until 2007 to file an appeal represented another delaying tactic, Wirawan Adnan - representing the bombers' defense team, accused the Attorney General of being in a rush to kill his clients.

Amrozi, Imam Samudra, and Ali Ghufron were sentenced to death by firing squad, originally scheduled to take place on August 24, 2006. That execution, however, was delayed when the three withdrew their original refusal to file any appeal in the case, declaring suddenly they would seek a judicial review of their sentence in an effort to avoid their date with an Indonesian firing squad.
