JAKARTA, July 31 (JDN.id) – Indonesia’s South Jakarta Court has decided to ban Islamic State–affiliated Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) on Monday.
JAD has been responsible for a series of terrorist attacks in Indonesia in couple of years.
JAD was represented by Zainal Anshari who is believed to be the second-in-command of the militant group.
The group leader Aman Abdurrahman is on his death row.
Presiding judge Haris Bawono said JAD has violated the Anti-Terrorism Law and settled as a forbidden network.
The judge said that JAD is a corporation that disrupts public order and no reason to lighten the sentence.
The U.S. government previously added JAD to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists in January 2017.
