Indonesia: Trial update, two combatants Jogjakarta

Reports from the trial of Eat and Billy, who have been imprisoned since October 2011, charged with having set fire to an ATM with explosives in Jogjakarta as a gesture of attack and solidarity.

Auto-translation from Negasi

February 15: Reyhard Rumbayan (EAT) and the Augustan Billy (Billy) yesterday (February 14, 2012) back in court for the third time. This agenda together with the second hearing on February 7, 2012, that is to hear testimony from witnesses. Public Prosecutor (Prosecutor) said they would present 30 witnesses to prove and convince the judge that the two combatants can be in the defendant with a chapter on terrorism.

The trial itself is increasingly clear to us is a sad parody of the state. Two witnesses that were presented at the second trial even admitted only see Eat and Billy in the cafe of Bourgeois before the burning took place. But the two witnesses who are owners of the cafe in front of the judges stated that they did not listen to the conversation the night before the attack on the property occurs.
Another peculiarity is also evidence that the institutions are state-by-trying to trap the brothers, we are one of the other witnesses who claimed not to see the combatants Eat at the scene when fire BRI Bank ATM. It is almost certain that the prosecutor-as an instrument of state repression-are unable to produce witnesses to prove that these two comrades were involved in international terrorist networks. Making it clear that the use of the articles on terrorism is a boring show.
Another bad scenario is to create a separate file for the second trial of the comrades. Each witness for the other. Both also continue to get the intimidation and terror of the interrogators, other than the fact that they are in brackets in the prison conditions are poor. The police also deliberately cut off the communication efforts with several comrades of the other combatants who follow developments beyond this case closely.
The process of protracted proceedings is also a tactic used by the state to make the two comrades-Eat-Billy and psychological exhaustion. They deliberately make a second trial on charges that comrade was disgusting passages, as a medium of terror against dissent-dissent in bloom.
But we are very confident that the two brothers will not give up and subjected to the forces of capital and the state. We also believe that the imprisonment that afflicts some friends who otherwise would not dampen the expression of anger against tyranny.
Long live the live action!
Exempt Eat & Billy!
Burn all the prisons to the ground!
