The government is drafting new laws that could make expressing enmity toward the government a crime. The radical cleric was cited as an example. (Reuters Photo/Crack Palinggi) Terrorists Face Reform School Under New Plan The government is establishing an agency that will focus on rehabilitating terrorist detainees and preventing future attacks. The move comes after it was discovered that many terrorists had returned to their old ways after being freed. More than a dozen terrorists released from detention joined a militant group that conducted training in the forests of Aceh and clashed with security forces earlier this year. The group has since been outlawed. "The body will be called the National Board on Antiterrorism," Brig. Gen. Tito Karnavian, head of the Densus 88 counterterrorism unit, told the Jakarta Globe over the weekend. Tito said the body, which is expected to be formed this year, would focus on rehabilitation and heading off attacks. Ansyad Mbai, the head of the antiterror desk at the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, told the Globe that the new body also would coordinate counterterrorism work between agencies such as the police, military and the State Intelligence Agency (BIN). "This body will work directly under the president and hopefully it will start to work this year," Ansyad said. Tito and Ansyad declined to give further details. But Ansyad said the government was also working to amend the 2003 Anti-Terror Law this year as changes were needed if the country wanted to fight terrorism effectively. Among the changes sought are a longer detention period for suspects without charging them, the ability to charge people who support terror networks and the use of telephone conversations and e-mail as evidence in court. "At present, we cannot charge people involved in military training because our laws do not permit this," Ansyad said. "That is why several terror suspects who were arrested had to be released. We need to upgrade our law after what has been going on in Aceh." He said another amendment being sought was to enable the authorities to charge any party showing dissatisfaction with, and enmity against, the government. Ansyad cited the case of hardline Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bahsir, who continues to criticize the government in his sermons and advocates the implementation of Shariah law throughout the country. "Bashir has always shown his dislike and hostility towards our government, saying the Indonesian government is infidel," Ansyad said. "With the new law, hopefully he could be charged over such statements," he said. Bashir, founded Jemaah Anshoru Tauhid in Solo in 2008 after resigning from the Indonesian Mujahideen Council, an umbrella group pushing for Shariah law. Many members were found to be involved with the armed group in Aceh, but Bashir denies he or JAT have anything to do with them. Tito also said that to be better equipped to fight terror it was time Indonesia had special prosecutors and judges who understood the terror networks. "If they understand what is going on, it will be much easier to combat terror," he said. Haris Azhar, deputy chairman of the Commission for Missing Persons and Victims of Violence (Kontras), agreed society had to crack down on terrorism, but said people should not be singled out just because they were different. "As long as you do not ask people to violate others' rights and do not force your dissenting views on others, you should not be charged," he said. [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
