We Beg Your Pardon, Mr. President?

Bali Bombers Last Hope of Salvation is a Presidential Reprieve.


The Indonesian Supreme Court has made a formal response to the sudden and abrupt withdrawal of the Bali Bomber's defense team last month during a final appeal before the Denpasar Court. Despite the "walk out" staged by the "Muslin Legal Team" who were angered at the refusal of the Court to change the venue of the hearing from Bali to Java and the judge's denial of the request to bring the three convicted men to Bali, the Supreme Court has ratified the decision of the Bali jurists.

A legal consensus is growing that the three bombers, Amrozi (43), Iman Samudra (37) and Ali Gufron (47) Ė now sitting on death row in Java for their role in the October 12, 2002, bombing of Bali nightspot that killed 202 people, are now left with the final legal option of seeking clemency from President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in order to avoid a fateful appointment with an Indonesian firing squad.

While the option of seeking leniency from the President is open to both the convicted men and their families acting on their behalf, the Bali bombers have thus far been steadfast in insisting they have no interest in seeking any pardon.

Claiming an allegiance only to God with unconcealed disdains for the laws or sovereignty of the Indonesian nation, should the Bali Bombers now seek clemency from the President they would necessarily be compelled to repudiate their fanatic religious militancy to make any request for mercy from the Indonesian leader tenable.
