TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian National Police (Polri) on Tuesday said the recently arrested suspected terrorist in Bekasi identified as Thoriquddin, alias Abu Rusydan, is a reoffender of terrorism charges. The Jamaah Islamiyah (JI) member previously spent 3.5 years behind bars for terrorism charges. 

Abu Rusydan is believed to be involved in a plethora of terrorism cases the police handled in the past couple of years. He is believed to be in the 53 arrests against suspected terrorists who are mostly JI members and in August this year police suspected his involvement in the fundraising scheme initially used to fund terrorists. 

“That was his latest involvement after serving his time in prison,” said the Polri headquarters spokesperson Grand Commissioner Ahmad Ramadhan on September 14.

Ramadhan said Abu Rusydan is still believed to be an active member of Jamaah Islamiyah and is even a higher ranking member of the terrorist group. He, along with other senior members, established a group that continues to communicate with one JI leader Para Wijayanto who had been arrested in 2019.
