Bali bombing suspect's wife jailed
Wednesday 04 January 2012
The wife of the main suspect in the 2002 Bali bombings has been jailed for 27 months by an Indonesian court for immigration violations.
East Jakarta District Court found Ruqayyah binti Husein Luceno, a 32-year-old Philippines national, guilty of using falsified personal data to get an Indonesian passport.
Luceno and her husband, Umar Patek, were arrested in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad on January 25, ending a decade-long manhunt for one of south-east Asia's most wanted terrorist suspects.
Patek is accused of making the explosives used in the Bali bombings, which killed 202 people. He is awaiting trial.
"The defendant has been proven guilty of violating the law... by giving wrong information to the immigration office," said presiding judge Suharjono, who uses a single name.
Luceno and her husband travelled to Pakistan in August 2010, and were captured five months later in the same town where Osama bin Laden was killed.
Luceno and her lawyers have not yet decided whether to appeal over the sentence, which was lighter than the prosecutor's demand of four years.
