Mas Selamat’s son in detention under ISA

The son of known terrorist leader Mas Selamat has been placed on a two-year detention order, the Ministry of Home Affairs said.

In an update on terrorism-related cases under the Internal Security Act, the Ministry said that Masyhadi Mas Selamat, 25, was placed on a two-year detention order on Nov 21 last year, after his arrest in Indonesia on Oct 20, 2013.

The eldest son of JI-leader Mas Selamat was deported to Singa­pore on Oct 30 last year.

The statement said restriction orders (RO) have been imposed on three Singaporean members of terrorist group Jemaah Islamiah (JI), while similar orders have been allowed to lapse for six other JI members who have responded well to rehabilitation efforts, the Ministry of Home Affairs said.

Two other Singaporeans, Zakaria Rosdan, 23, and Muhammad Khairul Sofri Osman, 29, have had their movements curtailed for two years from last December, having been self-radicalised by online videos and websites “through which they imbibed violent ideology”, said the statement.

An RO prevents a person from changing his residence, travelling overseas or printing, distributing or contributing to any publication – among other things – without prior approval of the Internal Security Department. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
