(6/22/2012)

The 20-year sentence handed down to Bali bomb maker Umar Patek has saddened large segments of Balinese society where the terrorist's evil act left 202 people dead and scores of others badly injured.

Quoted by Beritabali.com, one of those injured by the 2002 bombing, Wayan Sudjana said he had hoped that the trial would end in a death sentence for Patek.

“After Umar Patek was captured, I wanted to see him tried in Bali, but this did not happen. Now he’s been punished with 20 years in prison. If you ask me if I am unhappy with this decision, the answer is, yes, I am disappointed,” said Sudjana on Friday, June 22, 2012.

A similar sentiment was espoused by Haji Bambang Priyanto, the much-loved volunteer who worked tirelessly after the 2002 bombing by leading a team of volunteers to help restore normalcy in Kuta. Priyanto said the decision of the court was disappointing and gave no sense of justice to those affected by the atrocity.

“I was a witness against Umar Patek. I have already stated the aspirations of three components of the Balinese people who want to see terrorists punished in the most severe manner possible and executed,” said Priyanto.

Priyanto said the three components seeking the ultimate punishment for Patek included the 202 people who died because of his bomb, the 1,325 people who were severely injured by the blasts and the Balinese who continue to suffer economically because of that terrorist attack.
