It is finally official, Ustadz
Abu Bakar Ba'syir (ABB ) is being detained by the
Mabes Polri today, Wednesday (11/8). The Polri is also
already entrapping Ustadz with the article of a death
penalty. Meanwhile, Ustadz ABB himself is relaxed in
accepting those demands. The fight still continues!
Ustadz ABB Officially Arrested
It did not need to take long, the Polri is ultimately
formally arresting the Amir of the Jamaah
Anshorut Tauhid (JAT), Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'syir.
The Polri claimed to have had strong evidences of the
involvement of Ustadz Ba'asyir in the Aceh 'terrorist'
"It is already official (the detention),"
Commissioner General of Police, Ito Sumardi told the
journalists when intercepted at the building of Police
Headquarters Criminal Investigation Body, Jl Trunojoyo,
South Jakarta, Wednesday (11/8/2010).
Ito explained, investigators have strong evidences
that show Ustadz's involvement in funding the military
training in Aceh. However, Ito is still not sure how
much the amount of funds supplied by Ustadz ABB was,
in order to finance the operations.
"I certainly do not know, what's clear is that he
delivered it through someone or other party. The
terminology is, 'basically, please
support'. It's already a command,"
"Then there was also a flow of funds (from the
relevant)," he continued.
Without any delay, Ustadz ABB has been snared by all
the existing terrorism Law Articles i.e. article 14,
sub articles 7, 9, 11, and/or article 11 and/or
article 15 sub articles 7, 9, 11 and/or article 13
letter a, letter b, letter c, Law No. 15 year 2003
about the Eradication of Terrorism. What punishment is
promised for him? Death Penalty!
Ustadz ABB Just Relaxed
Ustadz ABB himself is relaxed in hearing the demand of
death penalty put on him. "He just accepts it. He
is relaxed," lawyer of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir,
Mahendradatta, said, Tuesday night (10/8/2010).
Mahendra added, it is useless to fight or defend
himself, because all are designed by a section of the
Polri. This is as what Ustadz ABB had said when
interrogated by the investigators of the Mabes Polri.
"No matter what I say, I will still be thrown into
prison, please do as you like to determine my fate in
this world!" Mahendra said, mimicking the words
of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir.
According to Mahendra, this is not the first time that
he was charged with bombastic articles. It has been
repeated times that this white-bearded man was charged
with horrific terror acts through a series of bombings
in the homeland. Now, when Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir
is charged with the involvement in the military
trainings in Aceh, this is not surprising anymore for
"Surely, there is a small group of actors in the
body of Polri who were not happy when he was freed"
The Team Of Muslim Lawyers (TPM) will do it all-out in
defending Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir. But in this month
of Ramadan, Ba'asyir asked so that there would be not
too much argumentative rebuttal. The TPM parties
agreed to this request.
"We are moving again after Ramadan. Just relax,
this need not be too serious" Mahendra explained.
Police Are Manipulating
With regards to the accusations of the Polri who are
too sure that Ustadz ABB is linked to the financing of
Aceh, a spokesman of JAT denied it. Son Hadi the
spokesman of Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT)
said that the police are manipulating the evidences to
ensnare Ustadz Ba'asyir.
"On what basis is the determining of the
defendant? If it is the video recording, it could be
made up anytime," he said, Wednesday (11/8/2010).
Concerning the video that Son meant, Mabes Polri
claimed to have pocketed a video that proves the
involvement of the Amir of the Jamaah
Ansharut Tauhid (JAT), Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir,
in the military trainings of the 'terrorists' in Aceh.
Further, Son annunciated that there is a special
scenario which is being played by the authorities with
"Ustadz was arrested two days after SBY admitted
of getting threats. There's something here," he
He added that the arrest of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir
in a time close to the month of Ramadan, is feared to
cause provocation on the Islamic ummah who
are in the midst of performing the ibaadah of
sawm (fasting). Because, Ustadz does not only
have the Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT) but he
also have the ummah. The Islamic ummah
will never be willing if their ulama's are
tyrannized just like that. They would surely fight
back and demand justice. Allahu Akbar!
