Is Idul Fitri upon us or April Fool's? I couldn't believe this story but it appears the Bali Bombers had dinner with anti terrorism chiefs

Hope you're right. These aren't the main three guys but a host of the hangers on who helped set up the others. But for me all should die, not only the big players.

AGO told to not execute Bali bombers

JAKARTA: An alliance of non-government organizations has asked Attorney General Hendarman Supandji to block the executions of the convicted 2002 Bali bombers -- Amrozi, Imam Samudra and Ali Ghufron -- for humanitarian reasons.

The three are awaiting execution after the Supreme Court rejected a request for a review of their case in August. Currently, the Attorney General's Office (AGO) is giving the convicted bombers the opportunity to file a request for a presidential pardon.

Spokesman for the alliance, Indria Fernida, said the death penalty violated the 1945 Constitution and the basic human right to life. She also criticized the government for not joining the 142 countries that had removed the death penalty from their legal systems.

AGO spokesman Thomson Siagian said it was not the prosecutors' right to stop executing prisoners on death row.

"Our country's legal system still imposes a death penalty as a legal penalty ... there is no way we can prioritize one form of penalty over another," Thomson said. -- JP/10
