Court rejects Ba’asyir’s appeal

Jakarta | Tue, February 28 2012 | 06:00 am

Tribunnews.com/HerudinJakarta: The Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of Abu Bakar Ba’asyir, upholding a lower court’s 15-year sentence on the firebrand cleric for running a terrorist training camp in Aceh.

“The court rejects the appeal by Abu Bakar Ba’asyir,” Supreme Court judge Djoko Sarwoko said as quoted by court spokesperson Ridwan Mansyur in Jakarta on Monday.

The Supreme Court also annulled the nine-year prison sentence for Ba’asyir handed down by the Jakarta High Court in October and reinstated the South Jakarta District Court’s original 15-year sentence, Kompas.com reported.
