Police Uncover International Funding for IS Terrorist Attacks

Islamic State Terrorists funding

The source of funding for the Islamic-State (IS) linked, homegrown, militant group Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) is currently being investigated by national police.

The group’s terror attacks have allegedly been funded by different people across five different countries.

According to National Police spokesperson Brigadier General Dedi Prasetyo, the global-scale funding was uncovered after the arrest of an alleged terrorist called Novendri last week in West Sumatra.

He informed the authorities that he had obtained funds from one of JAD’s elites known as S, Daniel, or Chaniago.

It is estimated that S had received funds totalling Rp413.17million (USD$29,569) from 12 different people with alleged ties to the Islamic State (IS), in five countries through Western Union. The five countries are Trinidad and Tobago, the Maldives, Germany, Venezuela, and Malaysia.

“We are cooperating with our counterparts in several countries to investigate the case,” Dedi added.
