Cleric and leader of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) has been charged with "criminal incitement" in relation to his daughter's wedding, where 10,000 people attended during a pandemic. The charge carries a jail sentence of up to 6 years. Five other people who organized the wedding were also charged.

You may want to avoid the area around Monas for the next 6 months...

The police is going to bring Rizieq in by force. They have to expect a firefight, and they may get one. I don’t believe his entire posse only have two guns.

Maybe, but it is likely to prevent him from pulling another runner like the last time he was facing charges. Someone on a Jakarta Post article said he is already prevented by immigration from leaving the country.

If he were to pull a runner, where could he go outside of Indonesia? I doubt Saudi would allow him back after he overstayed his visas.

If I were Jokowi, I would let him exit the country, pretending that he escaped. He’ll be a fugitive who will be arrested as soon as he steps foot on Indonesian soil, but free to stay abroad forever.
