KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia has released from prison a man who allegedly financed the deadly Bali bombings in 2002, as well as five other suspects who trained with weapons and explosives in Afghanistan, officials said Tuesday.
None of the six had ever been charged with a crime. All had been imprisoned under laws that allow for indefinite detention without trial.
Wan Min Wan Mat, a former university lecturer who was detained in 2002, allegedly provided about US$30,500 to members of the Jemaah Islamiyah terror group to carry out the Bali bombings, which killed 202 people, mostly foreigners.
Wan Min was released on Monday “after he had shown remorse over his past actions and militant-like views,” a security official told The Associated Press on customary condition of anonymity. He did not elaborate.
Oh! He showed remorse! That makes it all OK!
