Appeals rejected for Bali bombers

September 25, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Indonesia's Supreme Court rejected appeals by all three Islamic militants on death row for the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people, state news agency Antara said.

Court spokesman Nurhadi said two panels of judges had ruled against Ali Gufron and Imam Samudra -- on Aug. 23 and Sept. 19 respectively -- because their lawyers provided no new evidence, Antara reported.

The court announced this month that it had rejected on Aug. 30 an appeal by a third bomber on death row, Amrozi Nurhasyim.

Defense lawyers argued that the convictions were illegal because an anti-terrorism law was applied retroactively.
