FPI Attackers

VIVAnews — The Makassar District Police named Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) leader, Abdurrahman, a suspect in a riot case committed by the FPI South Sulawesi.

Abdurrahman was detained at the police station for investigation process.

Makassar District Police Crime and Investigation Division Head, AKBP Himawan Sugeha asserted, Abdurrahman, was arrested during the attack at the Jamaah Ahmadiyah Indonesia (JAI) Secretariat, early Sunday morning. Abdurrahman’s act allegedly violated Article 160 on sedition, for inciting others to commit unlawful acts.

“Abdurrahman did not set out the destruction, but he incited (FPI members of the destruction). He faces criminal imprisonment of maximum six years,” said AKBP Himawan Sugeha in his press statement.

In addition to Abdurahman, the police were still pursuing three other unidentified FPI members who promoted vandalism during the fasting month. They were identified in the case of destructions of restaurants and JAI secretariat on Jalan Anuang.

“We hope that FPI will not do it again because it is police authority to conduct raids,” said Himawan.
