Militant Sentenced in Jakarta Hotel Attack

An Indonesian court on Tuesday sentenced a Muslim militant to 10 years in jail for involvement in last year’s bombing of the J.W. Marriott hotel but acquitted him of helping plan the 2002 Bali attacks, even though he acknowledged participating in the plot. The August 2003 attack on the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta killed 12 people, while the bombing of nightclubs on the island of Bali killed 202. Jhoni Hendrawan, alias Idris, admitted taking part in both attacks, but the court ruled he could not be prosecuted over the Bali case because the country’s top court last month prohibited the retroactive application of the anti-terror law used to charge him. The law, however, was applicable in the Marriott case, which occurred eight months after the anti-terror law was enacted.Full Story
