Bali bomber seeks cut in sentence
Tuesday 16 February 2010
A terrorist convicted of building the bombs which killed 202 people on the Indonesian resort island of Bali in 2002 has asked the nation's president to reduce his life sentence, an official said today.
Denpasar District Court official Posma Nainggolan said Sarjiyo, who is known by a single name or by the alias Zaenal Abidin, recently sent a letter to the court requesting that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono set a fixed sentence for him to serve.
The same court sentenced him in 2004 to spend the rest of his life in prison for his part in the attacks on two nightclubs on October 12, 2002.
Mr Nainggolan said the court would send the letter along with his court file next week to the Indonesian Supreme Court, which will forward the letter to the president.
The process can take years.
