The National Police are set to add more anti-terrorism charges against Abu Bakar Ba’asyir, following a finding that he was likely to have incited actions in North Sumatra’s robbery and attack against a police station.

“We will compile the testimonies from the group members, including those who listen to Ba’asyir’s sermons in Hamparan Perak, [North Sumatra]. We will add them to the Ba’asyir case file so people can get a clearer picture of the cleric’s involvement in these events,” National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Iskandar Hasan told journalists Friday.

Iskandar was referring to an alleged terrorist group military-style training camp in Jantho, Aceh, a CIMB Niaga armed bank robbery in Medan on Aug. 18 and a fatal attack on Hamparan Perak Police in Deli Serdang, North Sumatra, in September.

The National Police’s antiterror squad Detachment 88 arrested Ba’asyir in West Java on Aug. 10, when the firebrand cleric and his family were on their way home in Central Java.

The police believed the members of Jantho camp were related to Al-Qaeda, Jamaah Islamiyah (JI) and Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid, led by Ba’asyir. The police are now trying to find more evidence linking Ba’asyir’s sermons in Hamparan Perak to the armed robbery and the attack
