Amrozi Execution

May 12th, 2008, in News, by

Amrozi Bali bomber Amrozi finds love in prison, and marries today, while his execution seems to be nearing.

Love

On May 12th condemned terrorist will re-marry his ex-wife Siti Rohmah/Rahma, who he divorced in 2000.

Amrozi's lawyer from Muslim Legal Team (Tim Pengacara Muslim (TPM)), Mahendardatta, says the love between Amrozi and Rahma had been rekindled of late, because Rahma was a regular visitor to the Nusa Kambangan prison, Cilacap, Central Java, where Amrozi spends his days.

Once Amrozi is gone Mahendardatta says: inilah

That Rahma will carry on the jihad struggle, that is certain. But not as a terrorist, those who call Amrozi a terrorist, well, that's you people [journalists].

Execution

Meanwhile it seems that the execution of Amrozi, and fellow prisoners Imam Samudra and Muklas aka Ali Ghufron, will take place not in Bali but in Cilacap, and the time is drawing near. Says Abdul Hakim Ritonga of the Attorney General's Office: inilah

The preparations are almost complete.

The final decision to go ahead with the execution rests with the minister for Law.

Amrozi

Method

Mahendradatta of the TPM had requested clarification from the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) on whether death by firing squad was a legitimate method of capital punishment within Islam. detik

After a person has been shot they don't die for 5 minutes, so it's torture, but if firing squads are deemed within the bounds of Islamic law [by the MUI], well then that's it.

Impatient

Another TPM lawyer, Achmad Midhan, says he can't understand what is happening with the plans for the execution and why the TPM's third request for a judicial review of the case is being ignored. kompas

If they're brave enough just do it now! It's strange, there are over 90 death penalty cases where the legal processes are complete but the executions haven't been carried out. The Attorney General's office should respect our client's efforts to have their cases reviewed.

Update. Amrozi wasn't allowed to have the marriage go ahead in the prison, so the ceremony took place in Lamongan, his home village, and he was represented by his younger brother Ali Fauzi. kompas

    Just kill the bastard already! Wife or no wife, shot 5 times or 10 times I don’t care. He obviously didn’t care either when he decided to blast Bali and kill those innocent people, so why should we?

    It’s been to bloody long anyway. He’s probably looking forward to death so that he can meet his 72 virgins!

    ????? what the hell are they talking about!? there were no guns when the quran was written in the first place, so they cant’ very well look it up can they? and as for saying a person who is shot doesn’t die for 5 minutes? Is he a retard!? I think let them blow themselves up in in a specially made bunker, that way there should be enough pieces to share amongst the virgins.

    Plus I think it is totally unfair that they aren’t being executed in bali. why they always get special treatment…..

    Seems like a blatant attempt of self promotion by the EX wife. I wonder if widows get some sort of special privilege, cynical bastard I am!!

    @GJ,

    Widows of jihadists are being picked up by other jihadists. Once Amrozi has been executed Rahma has a great chance of being married by our dear friend Cukurungan.

    It hasn’t dawned on anyone that he is in actual fact receiving a very Islamic punishment: execution for the crime of murder?

    Dilemma of the day: the death penalty – is it a good or bad thing? When to use it?

    It hasn’t dawned to you that this so-called very Islamic punishment hasn’t been carried out yet.

    Dilemma of the day: the death penalty – is it carried out earlier with non-Muslims (the three Catholics from Poso) than Muslims ( the Bali bombers)?

    Hell, it’s a legitimate method of capital punishment by NKRI legal system, so why should anyone give a S**T whether it’s legitimate for the scumbag’s religion? Didn’t he want to die by blowing himself up anyway? or has he changed his mind, has he chickened out?

    By the way, their “act of bravery” of committing suicide by blowing themselves up is to pussycat what seppuku is to tiger. Give them a blade, see if they still have the ball to slice open their belly.

    Just kill the f*cking bastard and let him meet his 72 virgins. Surely 72 virgins beats his 1 non virgin ex wife… Unless you compare sexual experience 😉

    And how could he actually still get such privileges of media coverage to marry his ex-wife when the Poso trio get no attention whatsoever? And why so much delays over the time of his execution? What rubbish is this?

  9. avatar shorty says:

    amrozi and his co convicted were sentenced to death.

    until such sentence is carried out they should be treated with no more, nor no less consideration than any other prisoner.

    we demean ourselves by asking or expecting for anything less.

    if we want ri to be a democracy where the rule of law is paramount, we must learn to impartially accept the process.

    i had friends, both local and european, killed and injured in these bombings.

    i want amrozi and his co convicted dealt with legally.

    to want other makes me no better than him.

    Inefficient administration? Corruption? Something else?

    Oh hang on I know what you mean. Favoritism right? The government hates non-Muslims and can’t wait to pull the trigger on them. As for Muslims, and especially Muslim terrorists, they love them right, and can’t bear to part with them?

    Perhaps what you can explain to me then is why the other 90 death row inmates mentioned haven’t been executed either? A bunch of Australians (no Muslims sorry) are on death row for drug smuggling and they haven’t been executed yet either. Favouritism for drug dealers or Australians or foreigners in general I suppose?

    Touche! The funny thing is, the very same people who advocated that those drug dealers should not be executed out of human rights concerns or that Indonesia should abolish it’s death sentence policy are now chanting “Burn Amrozi and co.” or “Kill them already” or even “Shoot those bloody bastards”. Hypocrisy anyone?

    Did they even realize that drugs that those traffickers brought to Indonesia (and worldwide for that matter) killed countless more than extremists like Amrozi and his ilks could ever imagined annually?

    For the members of the Family of Fabianus Tibo, Marinus Riwu and Dominggus da Silva, be strong and remember that their souls are in heaven now with Jesus.

    Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to those people on their passing. Our prayers be with you all in this time of loss.
    May god continue to bless and comfort each of you.

    As if death is not enough. Whoever did this is an uncivilized person. So much for human rights.

    I have no doubt that Tibo et al are with the Lord now. Let’s just wait and see if justice and accountibility really exist in Indonesia.

    Those executioners think they can get away. On the judgement day, they will have to answer God. May He forgive them.

    But in the bali bomber case case the tone is changed suddently here:

    For me it is very very Good …God willing to show to us again and again who they are and this strong evidence give us a solid justifications that we do not need to pay any attention to other people comment and opinion but we have to focus prepare anything neccesary to protect our interest at whatever cost and whatever mean.

    Brother I feel jealousy in your tone but if you want to a privilege of the Muslim Man …do not be shy you can follow my pad without my permission

    An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. But the best act within the sight of God is forgiveness.
    Amrozi, who thinks he is muslim, will be denied the 72 virgins, because God never made such promise.
    Upon his death, he will be judged by his deeds alone, not the amount of ritual worship, nor the number of pious children he garnered.
    Any man who embraces a religion, will eventually indulge in idol worship and create oppression, injustice and mayhem on earth.
    Amrozi was one such person, who blindly followed the words of his masters on earth, without thinking.
    He will ultimately face The Creator, The Judge. For Only God can decide his eternal fate.
    There is no requirement to worship God. For He is free of all wants. Focus on deeds of goodness. Be just and righteous. Confront the oppressors. And praise God alone.
    This was the messages relayed by Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohamed and many more.

  17. avatar Dykarg says:

    What is deceiving for me is just our consistency to apply our own law. Just too often we say about something, but then doing other thing, for un-transparent reason.
    If it had been decided to execute them, then what we are waiting for, either for drug dealers, or for Amrozy.

    The fact that this vermin has been allowed to breathe our precious air for more than 5 years after the events is unforgivable. But I agree that he should be shot in Cilacap to prevent his blood from defiling Balinese soil.

    The death penalty is debatable as far as it concerns humans, a category that doesn’t befit Amrozi dkk.

  20. avatar Mach Jabber says:

    I can only quote Therry back for truth.

    “Just kill the bastard already”.

    They make it like his execution is some kind of rite and he’s some kind of VIP.

    Brother, I must admit the prospect of spreading their wings all open wide and fill them up inside in stead of letting them grieve and mourn so shortly after they lost their loved ones is very tempting. But hey, who cares? It’s all for the great cause of Islam, right?

    Concerning the death penalty, basically I’m against it. A death sentence is the easy way out for these kind of criminals and I would rather see these creeps doing life in the worst circumstances and let inmates take care of each other. Since Amrozi can shake hands, laugh and pose for photographs with Da’i Bachtiar it’s better to shoot the bastard in his lower belly so he can have a slow, painful death.

    ‘scared’ Bali soil??? Sacred maybe, but scared?
    Wishful thinking, isn’t it, Cukurungan.

    Will he be allowed a conjugal visit?

    Just what we need some little “bin Amrozi’s” joining the jihad cause!

    I am against the death penalty!

    I personally think that these fellas should rot in jail! Shooting these blokes is a waste of perfectly good bullets! By shooting them you run the risk of making them martyrs and hence the little bin Amrozi’s, Samudera’s and Ghufron’s would have something to rally behind!

    It is an interesting question why the executions / murders of the Poso three were expedited and these blokes are being given every consideration under the sun. There are stark differences — the Poso three claimed innocence (whether provable or true is another story) and the Bali Bombers have confessed and have shown no remorse and are supposedly looking forward to the day they get to eat lead and die!

    When push comes to shove these fellas are on death row. So, if the MUI in its infinite wisdom issues a fatwa and says that death by firing squad is un-Islamic, so what? The government then goes out and finds a capable swordsman to smite them across the neck (some might prefer that a blunt blade is used). Or can people be stoned to death in Islam for crimes other than adultery? I think there might be a line of people will to cast the first stone!

    My little Brother sorry, you are correct but I am somewhat wondering with your post lately why you tend to become “Achmad Style” rather as future Jihadist Commander as I have put assignment on you.

    He is merely mocking his infidel enemies. He, or it.
    The search of affirmative power would have to move on and the whatever radical organization that once present him with such power is starting to leave him behind sooner or later.
    Amrozi will only be truly punished once he regrets and mourns for his act, and he realized it. He doesn’t want to amuse the enemies, he wants to tick them off.

    Never underestimate these radicals, they might’ve ingeniously understood the psychology of terror way before they’ve learned how to detonate bombs.
