Cops arrest ‘bomber man’

KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian was caught with more than 7,000 detonators while trying to smuggle them into Indonesia.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Hussin Ismail said Indonesian police arrested Mohd Nawawi Malong, 40, from Tawau, at a port in south Sulawesi last Wednesday with the help of their Malaysian counterparts.

“We learnt that Mohd Nawawi was transporting the detonators from south Philippines to Tawau and to south Sulawesi via Nunukan Island in East Kalimantan.

“He travelled with the Indian-made detonators on passenger ferries,” Hussin said.

It is learnt police discovered that Mohd Nawawi brought the explosives for local fishermen to assemble fish bombs.

The suspect had wrapped the detonators in dozens of sacks.

In another operation, Hussin said on Sept 29, Taufiq Marzuki@ Sulaiman Tarmizi, a member of the Acheh Mujahideen Militant group (KMA) was arrested in Johor.

The 29-year-old had fled to Johor after a KMA training camp in Bireun, Aceh, was raided by Indonesian police in March.

Hussin said both arrests were due to the good working relationship between local police and their Indonesian counterparts.
