Indonesia. Militants on death row for Bali bombings will not request presidential pardon: prosecutor

Three Islamic militants on death row for their roles in the 2002 Bali bombings will not request a pardon, a prosecutor said Thursday, a decision that will likely speed the date of their executions.

Amrozi bin Nurhasyim, Imam Samudra and Ali Ghufron turned down the chance to ask for a pardon when they met with judges and prosecutors in their jail cell on Wednesday, said I Wayan Suwilah, a prosecutor who attended the meeting.

Public calls to speed the executions of the three men have mounted since a second series of attacks on Bali earlier this month killed 23 people, including the three suicide bombers. Indonesian law says the convicts cannot be executed until all legal avenues have been exhausted.

Indonesian law says that families of prisoners on death row also can ask for pardons. It was not immediately clear whether prosecutors and judges also would meet with the prisoners' families in the coming days. The Attorney General's Office _ which would set the execution date _ was not immediately available for comment.

The al-Qaida-linked regional terror group Jemaah Islamiah is suspected in the 2002 bombings and Oct. 1 attacks this month on three crowded restaurants, the AP reports.

Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
