Bali Bombers Want To Be Beheaded

by | 8th, January 2008

THE Bali bombers want to choose the manner of their punishment:

A lawyer for three Islamic militants convicted for their role in the 2002 Bali bombings says the mode of their upcoming execution violates Islamic law.

Their lawyer, Achmad Michdan, says the men prefer to be executed by beheading rather than firing squad, which is Indonesia’s normal mode of execution.

The men are scheduled to be executed in the next few weeks unless they take advantage of a 30-day period to request presidential clemency. They have already indicated that they will not ask President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to grant them a lighter sentence.

Should they have any say in the matter, having murdered so many?
