Malaysia to deport Agus Salim to Indonesia

A suspected member of an Indonesian militant group, Agus Salim, 34, who was detained on June 6, is expected to be deported to Indonesia on Monday.

Bukit Aman Special Task Force (Operations/Anti Terrorist) director Datuk Mohamad Fuzi Harun said investigations on Agus had been completed and the case was currently the responsibility of the Immigration Department.

"We are satisfied with all the investigations which have been carried out," he said after closing a course on investigation science programme here Friday.

Agus, 34, from Medan, Indonesia who was detained in Malaysia two years ago before being deported, was arrested recently for using a false identification document to re-enter Malaysia.

His arrest in 2009 was for planning to take South East Asia's most wanted terrorist, Mas Selamat Kastari, who was hiding in Malaysia, to Indonesia.
