Shop owner faces death penalty for allegedly helping Bali bombers

A shop owner being tried for allegedly selling chemicals used in last year’s bombings on Bali island could face the death penalty if found guilty of aiding terrorists and illegally possessing explosives, a prosecutor said Saturday. Silvester Tendean, who owns a chemicals store in the East Java capital of Surabaya, went on trial Thursday for allegedly selling two tons of potassium chlorate to Amrozi, one of the key suspects in the deadly October 12 attack. Tendean is the first to go on trial for the attacks but is not suspected of direct participation. He is accused of violating recently passed anti-terror laws including aiding terrorism, possessing illegal explosives and violating a 1951 emergency law, said chief prosecutor Doni Irdan. “Under both the anti-terror and emergency laws, he could face the death penalty if found guilty,” Irdan told The Associated Press.
