Especially for Balinese and the victims’ family, bomb terror in 2002 recalls a bad memory of sad night when they lost their family. But for Umar Patek, the suspect of this terror, he must undergo reenactment of Bomb Bali 1 to give clear explanation how he and his group performed the crime.

Yesterday (19/10) Patek and some other suspects arrived in Bali escorted tightly by antiteror police. He will undergo reenactment at four different spots. However the spokesman of police admitted that the reenactment will focus on three essential locations including the scene at Legian where 202 people were killed. During two days, Patek who is placed separately from other suspects will also hold reenactment at US Consulate Office in Renon area as well as Ubung Bus Station, Denpasar. Not to mention, the house where Amrozi and others created the bomb before exploded at the ground zero will also become reenactment location.

Due to the reenactment, police has blocked some places like ground zero and Ubung Bus Station. Police also tighten the security around those 4 locations. Patek whose real name Hisyam Ali Zein was arrested in Pakistan in the same hillside town where Osama Bin Laden killed.

His name was mentioned by the suspect of Bali Bombing 1, Amrozi and others. Patek was accused as the man who taught them to create bomb. Patek on the interview with the press recently said that he tried to stop Amrozi and others to attacks Bali with Bomb. According to him, Bali was not the right place as Jihad should be fought outside Indonesia

Although Indonesian police considers that Bali Bombing 1 reenactment needs to be done, some people think this is useless.  “I Think I am just way to stupid to ever comprehend what this “re-enactment” circus is all about,” wrote Devine on Jakarta Globe site. People claimed that the police only want to show off their ‘seriousness’ to handle bomb terror in Indonesia
