Abu Bakar Bashir: Cleric linked to Bali bombings must renounce radicalism to win release

The alleged mastermind of the Bali bombings will not be released from prison early unless he renounces radicalism, Indonesia’s president has said – backtracking from plans to free him imminently without conditions.

Joko Widodo said radical cleric Abu Bakar Bashir must agree to pledge loyalty to the state to win his parole.
