Bali Bombers Withdraw their Appeal, For a While

Bomber's Lawyers Withdraw, Ending Latest Appeal Before Denpasar Court.


Angered at the refusal of judges to agree to a change of venue and another request to bring the 3 convicted terrorists from death row in Central Java to Bali to personally attend their final appeal, a lawyer for the "Bali Bombers" angrily withdrew his appeal on his clients' behalf and stomped out the Denpasar courtroom on Monday, March 24, 2008.

Showing markedly diminished bravado and a lessened personal urgency to "go to heaven," the three have reportedly quickly signed letters seeking yet another judicial review of their capital conviction for involvement in the death of 202 people in the bombing of a Bali nightspot on October 12, 2002. That letter will effectively delay, once again, the final execution of the three terrorists.

The dramatic withdrawal of the defense team for Amrozi (43), Iman Samudra (37) and Ali Gufron (47) means the three will now handle their own legal defense with self-labeled "Muslim Legal Team" acting only in an advisory capacity.

The Supreme Court is under no obligation to accept another request for an additional judicial review.

Legal observers have speculated that the execution of the three before a firing squad could happen 30-days after the court refuses the appeal request or a final rejection of their appeal by the Court.

A further delay could also take place if any of the three formally seeks a Presidential Pardon.
