Police correct statement: No Ahmadi suspects in Cikeusik lynching
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The National Police has corrected an earlier statement that the eighth suspect arrested in relation to a fatal attack on members of the Ahmadiyah Islamic minority sect in Pandeglang, Banten, was an Ahmadi.

“D”, the initial of the suspect in question, was apparently part of the attackers group, National Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Boy Rafli Amar said Friday.

Boy made the correction while showing journalists footage of D wearing a black jacket and carrying a machete while facing the Ahmadis at the house of Ismail Suparman, the leader of the local Ahmadiyah congregation.

“He is a resident of [Pandeglang], but doesn’t live there. D was arrested in Ulujami, South Jakarta, early on Thursday morning. So far there have been no Ahmadiyyah suspects [in this case],” Boy said in Tangerang, Banten, as quoted by

National Police chief detective Comr. Gen. Ito Sumardi and his subordinate Brig. Gen. Agung Sabar had earlier said that D was an Ahmadi.
