Jakarta (AsiaNews) - The execution of Amrozi, found guilty of the bombing attack in Bali, will take place in Cilacap, a small district in central Java, as announced by chief prosecutor Abdul Hakim Ritonga. The decision was made "for security reasons", and for the same reason the date of the execution has not been made public yet.
The lawyers for Amrozi and for the other two condemned men, Ali Gufron and Imam Samudra, are in the meantime preparing to present a request for a third review of the case.
On October 12, 2002 in Bali, a series of bombs in tourist spots killed 202 people, mainly tourists. Public opinion is still inflamed over the attack, and about the repeated delays in the execution, which had previously been scheduled on August 22, 2006, but were delayed because of an appeal and then postponed for "technical" reasons. Responsibility for the attack has been claimed by Jemaah Islamiah, the terrorist network linked to al Qaeda and active in southeast Asia, and the three men condemned have never expressed contrition for their actions.
Meanwhile, at the beginning of the week Amrozi presented a request to remarry his ex-wife Rahma, with whom he has two children.
