Bali Bomb Cleric Freed From Jail

Posted on 16. Jun, 2006 by in Culture Clash, Indonesia, Indonesian News, Rantings and Ramblings

Nice to know this f***’er is only a few kilometers from me. Absurd decision-making. Absolutely absurd.

From the BBC:

“A Muslim cleric convicted over the 2002 nightclub bombings on Indonesian island Bali, which killed 202 people, has been released from prison in Jakarta.

Abu Bakar Ba’asyir was found guilty in March 2005 of conspiracy in connection with the bomb plot, but he was cleared of more serious charges.

Security experts say the cleric is a founding member of a regional Islamic militant group Jemaah Islamiah (JI).

Supporters gathered outside the prison, cheering as he left the building.”
