Bali Bombers Execution Date Set

All in all more than 30 people have been convicted over the October 2002 nightclub attacks on Bali, which killed 202 people and injured a further 209. Among the victims were three Danish women, five Swedes and many other western tourists.
The three men – Amrozi, Ali Gufron and Imam Samudra – were sentenced to death in autumn 2003 and now “letters have been sent to the men’s families informing them of plans to carry out the executions near the end of August,” Bali prosecutors said.
But prosecutors said the execution could be delayed if the men appealed for a judicial review of their case.
Made Suratmaja, the head of Denpasar’s district attorney office, told Reuters news agency that the date of the execution could not be published until it had been carried out. But he said the men, their lawyers and their families had been sent letters notifying them of preparations for the execution.
The sentences would be carried out on the prison island of Nusakambangan, where the men are being held.
