Jakarta: Jihad Website Owner Gets Five Years Over Hotel Bombs

(Jakarta Post) The owner of arrahmah.com, which publishes articles and pictures advocating jihad against the West, was sentenced to five years in prison on Tuesday for his role in the 2009 bombings in Jakarta’s Kuningan area.

Muhammad Jibriel Abdul Rahman was found guilty of forgery and of hiding information about terrorist activities by the South Jakarta District Court.

Jibriel’s supporters replied to the verdict with deafening chants of “Allahuakbar”. Some of his supporters said Jibriel was a journalist who was persecuted by law enforcement officials.

Jibriel said he would appeal the verdict.

An article in arrahmah.com said the verdict was “wicked” and that Jibriel’s fight to prove his innocence “was not over yet.”

“Their key witness, Amir Abdillah, claimed that he did not know me. A case has been fabricated against me because I run an Islamic media outlet,” he said, as quoted by arrahmah.com.

His father, Abu Jibriel, filed a pre-trial lawsuit contesting the police’s arrest and detention of his son in September, but it was rejected by the court.

The court has now convicted three people — Supono, Rohmat Puji Prabowo and Aris Susanto — for connections to slain Malaysian terrorist leader Noordin M. Top and for involvement in the attacks on Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels last year.

None of the three convicts have appealed their verdicts.
