JAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesian prosecutors on Friday sought the death penalty for radical Islamic cleric Aman Abdurrahman who is on trial accused of masterminding a series of attacks, including a deadly 2016 gun and suicide bomb assault in Jakarta, from his jail cell.
Abdurrahman is on trial for “planning and/or mobilizing others to carry out terrorist acts … to create an atmosphere of terror among the public”.
Prosecutor Anita Dewayani told the court that under Indonesia’s anti-terrorism laws the defendant, if found guilty, should face the death sentence.
