Jakarta -Polri, TNI, and National Intelligence Agency (BIN) are required to ensure that the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang are free and clean from terrorist threats.
Chairman of the House of Representatives (DPR) Bambang Soesatyo said the slightest threat should not be tolerated. Therefore, he encourages an increase in the intensity of operations to paralyze and eliminate threats from terrorist cells.
“The House leadership paid serious attention to the fish bomb explosion incident in Bangil, Pasuruan, East Java, last week, a proof of the continued presence of active terrorist cells, and the activities of terrorist cells appear from the findings that show that the owner of the bombing of Pasuruan is a member of the terrorist network, “said Bambang, Tuesday (07/10/2018).
He explained that the owner of the bombing of Pasuruan is a former terrorist prisoner (napiter) who is free from Cipinang prison in 2015. The convict is known to be affiliated with Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) Depok and Medan, and allegedly involved bomb explosion in Kalimalang in 2018.
Of note, it is alleged that the owner of Pasuruan bombs still interact with his fellow members of the terrorist network as well as being a clue that terrorist cells are still active. This is a possibility to watch out for.
This Golkar Party politician revealed that terrorists are always looking for momentum to act to gain widespread attention. For example, suspected terrorists who were shot dead in Pamanukan flyover, Subang, West Java (Jabar) on June 22, 2018 allegedly planned to conduct terror during voting simultaneously.
The 2018 Asian Games will open on August 18, 2018 and attend delegates from 45 participating countries. The number of athletes and officials present is said to reach 16,000 people.
Based on this record, Bambang asked that the security of the 2018 Asian Games is really tightened because of the betting of Indonesia.
