Suara.com – The Jamaah Islamiyah (JI) and Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) groups became the two organizations that were most heavily prosecuted by law enforcement officials throughout 2021.

The National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) noted that of the 364 cases handled by the National Police’s Anti-Terror Detachment 88 in 2021, 178 of them involved JI members and 154 were related to JAD members.

“We know that JI and JAD have been declared banned by the district court,” said Head of BNPT Komjen Pol Boy Rafli Amar when delivering his institution’s Year-End Notes in Jakarta, Tuesday (28/12/2021).

In addition to JAD and JI, Boy Rafli said Densus 88 also took action on 16 cases related to members of the East Indonesia Mujahidin (MIT) and the remaining 16 were connected to members of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI).

Meanwhile, if it is observed from monthly arrests, the most prosecutions occurred in March with 79 cases, April 74 cases, and August 62 cases.

In the same activity, the Head of BNPT presented several terrorist organizations that are still quite active in Indonesia besides JI, JAD, and MIT, including Jamaah Ansharul Khilafah (JAK), Jamaah Ansharusy Khalifah (JAS), and the Islamic State of Indonesia (NII).

In his presentation, Boy pointed out that the JAK group is currently divided into two groups, namely JAK led by Arham alias Abu Hilya which focuses on developing Imam Ahmad’s Quran House and charities, while the other group is led by Suherman who focuses on managing Baitul Mal Watanwil.
