Bali bombers to be executed
The Daily Telegraph ^ | 3-24-08 | Karen Michelmore

THREE Bali bombers on death row over the 2002 bombings could soon be executed after a dramatic end to their final appeal today.

Their lawyer Fahmi Bachmid today withdrew from their last-ditch legal appeal, bringing it to an abrupt end.

Outside court, Chief Judge Ida Bagus Putu Madeg said the judges would now treat the appeal, known as a judicial review, as if it had "never existed".

"With this, whatever happened in the previous hearings is considered to not exist," Madeg told AAP after the hearing for convicted terrorist Imam Samudra.

"We will not convey this (case) to the Supreme Court because it's not something for which a decision is needed.

"So the case will stay here. It is considered that the judicial review request never existed."

Denpasar District Court had held three separate judicial review hearings, one for each of the three terrorists: the so-called smiling assassin Amrozi Nurhasyim; his brother Ali Ghufron (alias Mukhlas); and Imam Samudra.

The trio played key roles in the Bali nightclub bombings on October 12, 2002, which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

But the hearings became weighed down by a protracted bid to either have the bombers brought to Bali to testify or to have the appeal held in Cilacap District Court, off central Java, closer to their island prison.

These three devils are known as "the smiling assassins" for the idiotic grins they wore in court:

I'm sure the hangman will provide them with a more appropriate expression.

They will not be hung. The method of execution will be by firing squad. Normally such executions are carried out at sunrise and with no prior announcement.

The 202 souls that they killed had no prior announcements either.

Quite right. My mistake. At one point, they claimed that the firing squad violates Islamic law and have asked to be beheaded instead. The court rejected the request.

They want to be beheaded? OK. Behead them with a machine gun or 50 caliber hollow-point.

Unless they're executed by a method which would guaranty non-entry into paradise, then they win.
I'm sure we find plenty of volunteers to carry out these methods.

Their idea of “Paradise” doesn’t sound like much fun to me. Seventy-two virgins each will last them just over two months, tops: even less time if they are energetic. Then what will they do for the rest of eternity?

Eternity is a very, very long time.

Too bad we can’t sneak someone in there to dip the bullets in pig fat beforehand.

I’m surprised they haven’t “escaped”, yet.

Maybe not, but with the internet it's easy to get rumors started, and sensational ones are almost unstoppable.

Man, that’s an evil thought!

I LOVE IT!!!

Now, I wonder how would be the best way to get it started that way...
