GMA News Online reports that Filipina Ruqayyah Husein Luceno-the wife of the 2002 Bali bombings mastermind Umar Patek-has been sentenced by an Indonesian court to 27 months in jail for falsifying her identity. Luceno and her husband were arrested in January 2011 in Pakistan.

 

The report quoted chief judge Suharjono of the East Jakarta district court, who said that Luceno was "’found guilty legally and convincingly’ of falsifying her identity in order to acquire her Indonesian passport. He pointed out: "She falsified her birthplace from Mindanao in the Philippines to an Indonesian address. She also used a fake name."

 

Meanwhile, the report added that Patek will be charged with premeditated murder over the deaths of the 202 people, mostly Western tourists, who were killed in the 2002 Bali bombings. However, the report said that "it was not clear when his trial would begin."
