Happy Eid! It’s too bad that the people they killed can’t receive similar favors. From AFP, with thanks to Twostellas:
JAKARTA – Nineteen men convicted for their roles in the 2002 Bali bombings received reductions in their sentences on the Eid Al Fitr holiday, a prison official was quoted as saying on Sunday.
The reductions did not apply to the three key bombers who received death sentences and one serving a life term, said Tulus Widjajanto, head of a prison on the resort island of Bali.
Widjajanto was quoted by the official Antara news agency as saying that the 19 other Bali bombers at his prison received sentence reductions ranging from 15 to 45 days.
The Eid holiday is a traditional time for inmates with records of good behavior to get their sentences shortened. Numerous other prisoners in Bali and other parts of the country also received remissions.
