At least 12 militants jailed in Indonesia over the 2002 Bali bombings have had their sentences reduced to mark independence day.
The reductions, of up to four months, were in sentences ranging from five to 16 years.

The move sparked anger in Australia, where 88 of the 202 victims of the nightclub bombings came from.

The reduction also benefited Australian drug-smuggler Schapelle Corby, who got a two-month cut in her 20-year term.

Another Australian drug-smuggler, Renee Lawrence is also likely to have a small sentence reduction.

'Good behaviour'

The reductions in sentences for the 12 Bali bombers mean that one man, Puryanto, has now been released.

"They are entitled to remissions because they have behaved well," Bali's Kerobokan prison chief Ilham Djaya told Reuters news agency.

More than 30 people have been jailed for the 2002 Bali blasts, which have been blamed on the South-East Asian militant group Jemaah Islamiah.

Those benefiting from Thursday's sentence reductions are thought to have played relatively minor roles in the bombings - such as sheltering the main suspects or helping to finance the attacks.

Several people convicted of playing a more serious role in the attacks are serving life sentences, while three militants - Amrozi, Ali Gufron and Imam Samudra - are due to face the death penalty later this month.

'Painful'

There was anger in Australia at the announcement.

David Stewart, whose son Anthony died in the bombing, spoke out at the reductions. "I want people to know that this is ridiculous, these short sentences," he said.

A spokesman for Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said many people would find the news upsetting.

"It is difficult for most Australians to comprehend that such prisoners have received reduced sentences," he said. "This is particularly painful for victims and their families."

But granting remissions was a long-standing practice in Indonesia, he said.

Under the Indonesian system, all prisoners are eligible for remission on independence day, so long as they have served at least six months of a sentence and they are not sentenced to either life in prison or death.

Corby in court for last legal bid

Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has arrived at a Bali court for a final legal bid to have her 20-year jail term overturned.

The Australian beauty therapist was found with 4.1kg (9 lb) of marijuana in her bag as she flew into Bali in 2004.

She claimed the drugs were planted in her surfboard bag by corrupt Australian baggage handlers.

Her case has won widespread sympathy in Australia, with many people believing her to be innocent.

In his opening remarks to the court on Friday, Corby's lawyer Erwin Siregar said there was "no way the defendant would do such a foolish thing" as smuggle drugs.

He said he would present new information to the court proving her innocence.

The case will be considered by judges behind closed doors, and the verdict is expected to take up to two months.

This hearing is Corby's last legal avenue. If it fails, her only option for a pardon would be to seek clemency directly from Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Its ok WD, those NASTY Americans did it accourding to Basha Basha;

Indonesian Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir claims America's top spy agency was involved in the devastating 2002 Bali bombings.

Bashir, who was convicted and imprisoned for having prior knowledge of the attacks which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, is also appealing for the lives of three convicted bombers to be spared.

Bashir, the spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiah (JI), was released from prison in June after serving nearly two years.

Amrozi, Ali Ghufron - also known as Mukhlas - and Imam Samudra are awaiting execution for their part in the plot.

In an interview tonight on ABC television's Foreign Correspondent, Bashir claims the device that killed most people in the Bali attack was a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) "micro-nuclear" bomb.

"The micro-nuclear bomb that did so much damage was a CIA bomb, not Amrozi's bomb," Bashir told the ABC.

"The Bali bombing was actually masterminded by America. Well, not masterminded, but hijacked. They planned it, but their plan was hijacked by America."

"So the bomb that killed so many Australians, it was an American bomb. It wasn't the bomb made by Amrozi and his friends."

Bashir defended the Bali bombers, but conceded their actions may have been "misguided".

"Actually, they (the bombers) are not terrorists. America is the terrorist. They are not terrorists. They followed the path of jihad to defend Islam and Muslims. Perhaps their actions were misguided," Bashir said.

"Secondly, it was unfair of the court to sentence them to death because their bomb would not have killed people, only injured them. It was a CIA bomb that killed people."

Bashir also attacked the Australian government, saying it wrongly continued to hound him and treat him as an enemy.

He said Indonesia had placed no travel restrictions on him and he was free to go where he wanted.

"It's the Australian government that makes every effort to ensure I continue to be hounded. So in Indonesia there are no restrictions on me travelling overseas. I'm allowed to go anywhere I want to.

"But it would be impossible to go to Australia because if I went there I would be arrested and slandered by the Australian government. The Australian government still treats me like an enemy for reasons that are unclear. "
