Militant Sentenced to Life for Bali Bomb Blast

October 17, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

An Afghan-trained Indonesian militant who tearfully apologized to victims' relatives during his trial was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for helping plan and finance the Bali nightclub bombings in which 202 people were killed.

Mubarok, 34, whose real name is Hutumo Pamungkas, was found guilty of attending meetings to plan the Oct. 12, 2002, blasts and using his bank account to deposit money that was used to buy chemicals and a minivan for the attack.

The judge said he avoided a death sentence because of his confession and remorse.
