No date for bomber executions
TWO Indonesian terrorists sentenced to death for the 2004 Australian Embassy bombing in Jakarta are yet to be given an execution date.
This is despite being sentenced before executed Australian drug runners Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran. The men, known as Rois and Hasan, are both on the Nusakambangan prison island where Chan and Sukumaran were executed by firing squad in 2015.
Indonesian Attorney-General HM Prasetyo, who scheduled the executions of Chan, Sukumaran and six other drug runners in April 2015, declined to comment when approached by The Advertiser.
Hasan and Rois were sentenced to death in 2005 for the car-bomb blast that killed eight Indonesians and tore strips off the embassy and buildings for hundreds of metres around.
Chan and Sukumaran were sentenced in 2006.
The Australians both expressed remorse during their trials, while both of the Indonesian killers, who’ve so far been given an extra three years of life, had no sorrow.
Rois supplied explosives that were placed in a vehicle that blew up outside the embassy; Hasan planned the attack with terror masters Dr Azahari and Noordin M Top.
