Release Of Detainee And Lapse Of Restriction Orders Under The Internal Security Act

One person released from detention
                 Muhammad Zamri bin Abdullah (Zamri) was detained under the ISA in Dec 2007. Zamri had been self-radicalised through radical propaganda in publications, videos and the Internet, and had attempted to make arrangements to participate in militant jihad overseas. While in detention, Zamri had cooperated with investigations and made good progress in his rehabilitation. As such, he was assessed to no longer pose a security threat that required preventive detention. He was released on a Restriction Order (RO) which took effect on 5 Dec 2011.
Lapse of 8 ROs
2            The ROs against 6 members of the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terrorist network, one self-radicalised individual and one Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) sympathiser were allowed to lapse between 8 Nov 2011 and 5 Jan 2012. The ROs against JI members Muhammad Amin bin Mohamed Yunos and Muhammad Arif bin Naharudin lapsed on 8 Nov 2011, while the ROs against Adnan bin Musa, Andrew Gerard, Fathi Abu Bakar Bafana and Halim bin Hussain lapsed on 5 Jan 2012. The RO against self-radicalised individual Mohammad Taufik bin Andjah Asmara lapsed on 4 Dec 2011 and the RO against MILF sympathiser Faizal Khan bin Gulam Sarwar lapsed on 5 Jan 2012. The ROs were allowed to lapse as the 8 men had been cooperative and responsive to rehabilitation efforts.
