A multi-party coalition of legislators in the House of Representatives legislators demanded that the Islamic Defender Front (FPI) be officially declared a forbidden organization, said a coalition representative.

“We are not concerned about their mission. We concerned about the way implement their goals,” said Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle legislator Eva Kusuma Sundari at a press conference at the House on Monday.

The FPI has been implicated in “too many” violent incidents and there is more than enough evidence for police to bring criminal charges against the group, she said.

“The police must follow up reports on the FPI so that the courts will have a firm basis to determine that the organization should be forbidden,” she said.

Eva also urged President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to use his authority to take firm action against the FPI.
