Iriawan stated that investigators are waiting for Rizieq Syihab to return to Indonesia because the hardliner group Islamic Defender Front (FPI) leader has not been questioned even though he has been named a suspect.

Although Rizieq is still abroad, Iriawan explained, there is no reason to halt the investigation. Police have not encountered any difficulties in processing the case, he added.
