Teenager arrested for alleged links to terrorist cells

Inspector-General of police Tan Seri Muhamad Fuzi Harun (pix) said that nine of those detained were from the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) and three from the Turkish Fettulah group (which is listed as a terrorist group by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation).

According to the daily, the teenager was one of several people who were nabbed in Kelantan on Wednesday for having terrorist links.

"Our proactive action was taken based on intelligence gathered, that Daesh terrorists from various nations who had previously operated in Iraq and Syria, had begun escaping after the Daesh terrorists lost its control over most areas it conquered in Iraq and Syria", Fuzi said, adding that these militants were then ordered to enter other countries in the world to launch terror attacks for Daesh.

He said that all of them had been directed to infiltrate into various countries worldwide to launch attacks on behalf of Daesh.

Fuzi said that the intelligence gathered by the police confirmed that there were foreign terrorist groups such as ASG and Jamaatul Mujahideen, which had joined forces with IS.

Mohamad Fuzi said the remaining 31 individuals were FTF from various nationalities suspected of being involved with the Daesh group including three FTF who were Iraqi nationals who were Daesh commanders in southern Iraq.

One has been detained under Malaysia's Prevention of Terrorism Act, while 12 suspects are still under investigation. Indonesians, Filipinos and Yemenis were also part of this group of detainees.

So far, 13 of the militants have been charged for offences under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012.

"We have made some arrests that are in relation to their (suspects') planned attacks on certain targets", he said when asked to comment on arrests involving schoolchildren, believed to possess explosives and who have the skills to produce them, in Kelantan.

He said the success of the PDRM in the operation to prevent this was the result of close cooperation with intelligence agencies and foreign enforcement agencies in terms of exchanging intelligence information.

He said that the police will keep their ear to the ground and continue to take action on foreign terror elements that are infiltrating the country.
