One of the twenty-nine men sought by police in Poso is in custody. Andi Lalu, or Andi Lolu, or Andi Bocor, take your pick, gave himself up to police in Mapane, Poso Pesisir, Central Sulawesi on the 14th. He was straightaway taken to Palu, the provincial capital.

    Why they can’t stand on the neutral stance. Tibo Cs = death sentence. Bali bombing = max 19 years. I don’t see any prudence in the justice system on the sentence passed on them. It showed favoritism and sangka buruk.
