CLERIC RIZIEQ SHIHAB TO RETURN TO INDONESIA

The Islamic Defender Front (FPI) leader Rizieq Shihab plans to return to Indonesia following the issuance of a termination letter for the pornography case against him. It would be a one-year period of his hiding over the police probe should he arrived on June 2018. The police on Sunday confirmed that the termination letter (SP3) for the pornography case against Rizieq Shihab had been issued because the investigators had difficulty discovering additional evidence to support the allegation of Rizieq’s involvement in the case. Rizieq, who spearheaded the 2016 sectarian rallies that led to the incarceration of former Jakarta governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama for blasphemy last year, has said he believed his case was politically motivated.
