The Australian: Cleric jailed over embassy bomb [September 08, 2005]
: "A MUSLIM cleric has been jailed for seven years for helping assemble the bomb that killed 12 people outside the Australian embassy in Jakarta a year ago.
Heri Sigu Samboja, 23, was guilty of two counts of terrorism, Chief Judge Asnawati said in a verdict at South Jakarta District Court.
Samboja carried out a 'sinister conspiracy in terrorism' and was guilty of 'withholding information on terror attacks', Asnawati said.
But he was cleared of a primary charge of having directly taken part in the planning of the September 9, 2004, attack with Azahari Husin and Noordin Muhammad Top, two key suspects who are still at large.
Samboja, who teaches religion at an Islamic boarding school, visited Jakarta and conducted surveillance on the embassy before a truck driven by Heri Golun exploded outside the building, Asnawati said.
The defendant also helped to assemble the bomb that killed 12 people, including the suicide bomber, and wounded more than 200, she said."
