Pro-Islamic State (IS) cleric Aman Abdurrahman has instructed his lawyer not to file an appeal against his death sentence for inciting various terror attacks in the country.
“It has been seven days since the final hearing, and we have not filed an appeal against the sentence,” lawyer Asludin Hatjani said on Friday, as quoted by kompas.com.
Therefore, he said, Aman would be transferred from the detention center at the National Police’s Mobile Brigade headquarters in Depok, West Java, to another, as yet unspecified, higher-security prison.
South Jakarta District Court found Aman, the de facto leader of Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD), a local affiliate of the IS terrorist group, guilty last week of inciting others to commit at least five terror attacks, including the bomb and gun attack on Jl. MH Thamrin in Central Jakarta in 2016 and the Kampung Melayu bombings in East Jakarta last year. (vny)
