TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The antiterrorism special detachment Densus 88 of the National Police predicted that at least there are 38 Indonesian nationals involved in the terrorism acts in Marawi, Philippines.

Police’s Public Relation head Insp. Gen. Setyo Wasisto said that one of them was a woman. The police call them Foreign Terrorist Fighters. Of the 38 Indonesian citizens, six were deported by the Philippine government, while four were suspected to be dead.

Setyo Wasisto mentioned his concern about the weakness of the antiterrorism law. He said that with the law, the police cannot punish those who deported from Marawi since they have committed the crime abroad.

"We’ll do a profiling process toward them; if we have data on their activities in Indonesia. Since they have committed [the crime] in Marawi, we’ll synchronize it and then we can penalize them based on the profiling data," Setyo said at his office in Jakarta, Friday, June 2.

He further explained that an Indonesian citizen who defends the interests of other countries can be subject to the immigration laws.

The police are now securing borders in three islands in North Sulawesi. "North Sulawesi Police has deployed 119 personnel at the borders," Setyo said.

The three islands, which are the biggest islands in the province and the closest to the South Philippines, are Marore, Miangas, and Nangusa Islands.

"We plan to deploy 200 mobile brigade personnel to strengthen the border posts along with the TNI personnel," he added.
