“We also regret the police’s statement that the men were FPI members who were killed assaulting police officers. Since their actions amounted up to murder, they should take responsibility for their actions in a court of law.”

The Jakarta Metropolitan Police has summoned Rizieq twice since last week to account for his repeated violations of health protocols, particularly on social distancing, following his return from exile in Saudi Arabia last November. To date, he has yet to answer their summons.

The FPI has withheld Rizieq's whereabouts from the police.

Rizieq’s tumultuous return from exile forced the National Police to fire their regional heads for Jakarta and West Java. The police also summoned Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan and West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil for allowing the gatherings to occur in their provinces.

They also called senior officials at Soekarno-Hatta Airport for not taking proper measures to prevent Rizieq’s followers from storming the airport during his homecoming.
