KOMPAS.com - A prominent Indonesian militant who has been linked to the 2002 Bali bombings has been sentenced to 15 years in prison by a Jakarta court, abc.net.au reported on Wednesday, Jan. 19.

Aris Sumarsono, better known as Zulkarnaen, was a former military commander for the Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group, Jemaah Islamiyah.

He was found guilty of aiding and abetting terrorism by either lending money, giving shelter to a terror perpetrator, and withholding information on a terror act.

The judgments and sentencing do not relate directly to the 2002 attacks, which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians.

The Jakarta court dismissed charges he masterminded the Bali bombings, as the statute of limitations had expired.
