Demolition Man Bali
February 14, 2012 by staff
Demolition Man Bali, The Muslim militant nicknamed “Demolition Man” who is suspected of building the bombs used in the 2002 Bali nightclub attack went on trial yesterday in the Indonesian capital on t*rror*sm and other charges.
Umar Patek, the top remaining suspect in the Bali bombings, is also being tried in connection with other alleged acts of t*rror*sm following a nine-year flight from justice that took him from Indonesia to the Philippines to Pakistan, allegedly in pursuit of more terror opportunities.
He was captured in January 2011 in the same Pakistani town where US Navy Seals would kill Osama bin Laden just a few months later. He was then Asia’s most wanted terror suspect with a US$1-million bounty on his head.
He is accused of making the explosives used in the Bali blasts, which killed 202 people, mostly foreign tourists.
Patek, who was tightly guarded as he entered the West Jakarta District Court yesterday, smiled at reporters and photographers but did not respond to questions shouted by journalists.
Wearing a white robe and a white skullcap, Patek, 45, sat quietly as the indictment was read out loud by state prosecutors, led by Bambang Suharijadi.
Patek, whose real name is Hisyam Bin Alizein and who has several aliases, could face death by firing squad if convicted of the various charges against him.
Under the 29-page indictment, prosecutors charged Patek with premeditated murder, hiding information about t*rror*sm, illegal possession of explosives, and conspiracy to commit t*rror*sm.
He is also accused of providing explosives for a string of Christmas Eve attacks on churches in 2000 which claimed 19 lives.
In a re-enactment organised by police in Bali while he was in custody, Patek showed how he and other conspirators stashed a 1,540-pound bomb in four filing cabinets and loaded it in a Mitsubishi L300 van along with a TNT vest bomb.
