Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says the release of Umar Patek, one of those responsible for the 2002 Bali bombings, from Indonesian prisons will have a devastating effect on the families of victims.
202 people lost their lives in the terrorist attacks, 88 of them Australians.
“They are going through trauma as they mourn loved ones who have passed away,” Albanese said at a press conference on Friday.
“It was a barbaric attack. More than 200 people were killed and 88 Australians died. All 88 Australians were sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers.”
Mr Albanese said the Australian government would diplomatically convey its views on further reduction of Patek’s 20-year prison term.
