Terrorist To Be Executed

Sphere: Related Content

One of the terrorists who killed more than twenty people with sarin gas in the Tokyo subway had his appeal rejected:

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected a special appeal by AUM Shinrikyo founder Shoko Asahara against the death sentence for the sarin gas attacks on the Tokyo subway system in 1995 and other crimes.

The death sentence on 51-year-old Asahara for 13 crimes is now finalized as Japan's top court dismissed his appeal.

The Tokyo District Court's ruling deemed that Asahara, whose real name is Chizuo Matsumoto, masterminded the 13 crimes by AUM Shinrikyo, and that a total of 26 people were murdered by AUM members under Asahara.

Good, I just hope it doesn't take us 11-years to stick the plunger in Zubaydah and KSM's arms.
