Bali Bombers: Out of Options, Out of Time

Nearly 6 Years After their Heinous Crime, the Bali Bombers are Now on the Final Stretch for a Date with the Firing Squad.


(8/29/2008)

Appeals of Indonesian Supreme Court decisions are rare and, with the exception of the recent third petition filed by "the Bali Bombers," tertiary appeals are completely unheard of.

The anouncement on Friday, July 18, 2008, that the unusual "third appeal" to the Supreme Court by Amrozi Nurhasyim, Imam Samudra and Ali Gufron of their death sentence for their role in the October 2002 Bali bombing has been rejected, now suggests that the three's final appointment before a firing squad on a beach in Cilacacp, Central Java is now only a matter of time.





A letter from the Supreme Court in Jakarta has been sent to the Bali's prosecutor's office, according to the Head of the Denpasar District Court, Nyoman Gede Wirya.

Wirya explained while the execution of the three will be carried out near their place of imprisonment at Nusa Kembangan, the "official" administration of the firing squad rests with the Bali's prosecutors whose job it is to implement the final ruling of the court.

Not without its irony, the three terrorists, defiant and unrepentant for taking the lives of 202 people, feel no allegiance to the Indonesian Republic or its laws, can now only seek a delay of their death sentences by formally seeking clemency from Indonesia's President. The three have, however, steadfastly insisted they will not seek a presidential pardon, preferring instead to die as religious martyrs.

With all course of appeal now exhausted and requests for clemency a remote possibility, the National News Agency Antara quoted Indonesia's Attorney General Hendarmin Supandji as saying, "according to the law, the punishment can already be carried out."

A chorus of national and international voices opposed in principle to capital punishment are expected to begin lobbying the Indonesian government to revoke the death sentence of the three. But, barring any new unforeseen legal hurdles, the "Bali Bombers" may soon achieve the martyrdom they so strongly profess to crave.

While no formal date for the execution has been set, many belive the task must be completed before mid-September, the start of the Islamic fasting month.
