Jail Terms for Indonesian Terrorists


Around this time last year, a group of terrorists led by Pepi Fernando planned to send bombs disguised as books to four Muslims they considered liberal.  The book bombs, according to Indonesian officials, carried the same detonator as past bombs created by Jemaah Islamiyah.  Pepi Fernando, the mastermind, was implicated in several other terrorist plots, including an assassination attempt against Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.  Fernando told former Global TV cameraman Imam Mochammad Firdaus about one plot and asked him to videotape the planned explosion.  For failing to tell authorities about it, Imam was also sentenced to jail.
