Israel launches website in Indonesia

Pollycarpus Priyanto, a 45-year-old pilot, was originally sentenced to 14 years on charges of putting arsenic in Munir's food while the human rights campaigner was on a flight from Jakarta to Amsterdam two years ago.The Supreme Court quashed the conviction in October citing a lack of evidence, but upheld Priyanto's two-year sentence for falsifying flight documents. Indonesia traditionally cuts prison terms for some inmates on national holidays, and the justice ministry said Tuesday the pilot was one of more than 6,000 non-Muslim convicts to benefit on Christmas.His one-month reduction made him eligible for release and he left Cipinang prison in the capital, Jakarta, on Monday.Activists slammed the decision, saying it showed that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's government was not serious about finding justice for Munir.
