JAKARTA, May 16 (Reuters) – An Indonesian high court has upheld a two-and-a-half year sentence handed to Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir for his role in the 2002 Bali blasts that killed 202 people, an official said on Monday.
Lawyers for Bashir, who is accused by some foreign governments of leading the al Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiah network, said they would appeal to the Supreme Court once they received official confirmation.
“In their ruling, the panel of judges upheld the verdict made by the South Jakarta district court (on March 3),” Hussein Kasim, spokesman of the Jakarta High Court, told reporters.
I wonder if Bashir has a cane that he twirls round his diamond ring finger.
