Bali Bombers to Seek Judicial Review

Execution to be Delayed While Lawyers Challenge Legality of Law Used to Convict Bali's Self-Confessed 2002 Bombers.

(8/5/2006) The final capital execution of the three convicted Bali bombers - Amrozi, Imam Samudra and Ali Ghufron will be delayed as lawyers for the three have now formally announced that will seek a legal review of their conviction.

A retreat from the initial bravado of the three mass murderers who iniitally insisted they would seek neither legal reviews or Presidential clemency, their lawyers have announced they will now formally challenge the legality of their clients' ex post facto conviction for a crime committed on October 12, 2002 under a law that was only enacted some six days after the infamous Bali bombings.



The three are currently housed in isolation on death row on Indonesia's notorious Nusa Kambangan Island following their hasty evacuation from Bali's prison where massive crowds gathered outside the penitentiary demanding their immediate execution following the most recent October 1, 2005 bombing.
