Terror alert as Bashir verdict under way in Jakarta
“Our officers are alert but there are no serious indications,” Ansyaad told news portal Detik.com on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the panel of judges at Bashir's trial continued reading the verdict, recalling statements from previous hearings.
"Witness Abdul Haris admitted that the defendant met with Harry Usman and Syarifusman and told them that his jihad program needed money," Herry read the ruling.
Haris was the chair of Jakarta chapter of Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT) and admitted to having frequent meetings with Bashir.
After 1.5 hours judge Herry asked Bashir and his lawyers whether the judges should read the testimonies of all 30 witnesses.
"It can take another five hours," Herry said.
Bashir' party agreed for the judges to skip the testimonies except for defense testimonies and witnesses.
The trial is ongoing.
