Only two pilots in simulator, training a success The first reaction from Indonesia on the ban to fly to countries of the European Union for all Indonesian airliners was as clear as it could be. Furious they were, because there were no structural problems at all in the airline industry in the country. President Yudhoyono even canceled a visit to the Netherlands because of the ban. And all this even when there was not a single Indonesian airliner flying to Europe, since Garuda Indonesia had stopped flying to Amsterdam late 2004 already.

A deserted Kuta in November I have to admit, it is somewhere far outside any holiday season in the middle of November, maybe that will help create the almost deserted Kuta around this time of year. It was a short trip of about one hour from the beating cultural and religious heart of Bali, Ubud. With a virtually blue sky I left the spiritual village on a rented Mio (scooter), heading for the hot lowlands and crowds of Southern Bali. That crowd was a relative thing here, but seen from Ubud almost everything in the outside world looks crowded.

Executions are the new hype in Indonesia Two members from one family, mother Sumiarsih (59) and son Sugeng (43), were executed earlier this month after they had been on death row for an astonishing twenty years. They were sentenced to death in the 1980's over a murder on five members of their own family out of vengeance. After twenty years in prison, they names - and their story - reappeared in the news once again. The end of their story was clear for almost twenty years already, but it just did never materialize. Probably someone did not like cleaning his office, so these two death row candidates were only executed by firing squad earlier this month.

Amrozi prefers lethal injection over firing squad However a representative of the Indonesian police told media that the death penalty for Amrozi and his fellow bombers will be the firing squad, Amrozi rejects such a death. He prefers a lethal injection or the electric chair. This was spoken out by Achmad Michdan yesterday in a discussion over the way of executing death penalties in Indonesia. According to Michdan, Amrozi and the other convicted Bali bombers prefer to be executed according to islamic regulation, instead of being shot to death. "According to islamic regulations, a person who is convicted to the death penalty should not feel any pain when they are actually executed."

Indonesia sentences four Australians to death An Indonesian appeals court has sentenced four Australian members of a drug smuggling ring to death, prompting a protest from the Australian government, officials said Wednesday. But the court spared the lives of two other Australians, sentencing them to life in prison.
