Some interesting details emerging about the Jakarta plots last year

According to the indictment, he sent an email to his brother detailing the plot by Noordin, the terrorist mastermind who was gunned down last year by Indonesian police.

”Cleric N needs 100 million [rupiah or $12,000]. Please pray for me,” the email, sent a year before the twin hotel blasts, said. ”It’s really crazy. It’s the biggest after WTC [World Trade Centre]. It’s a secret, OK.”

Jibril’s brother, Ahmad Isrofil Mardhotillah, was studying in the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia at the time and was subsequently visited by Jibril and Saefuddin Jaelani, the field commander of the Jakarta bombings.

The men went to do a minor pilgrimage and also sought funding for the terrorist act.

It is unclear if the men raised the money on the trip, as Jibril is not actually charged with financing the bombings. Instead, he is accused of hiding information in the lead-up to the bombing, document forgery and using a fake passport.

Prosecutors believe the funding for the Jakarta bombings came from a Saudi man, al-Khelawi Ali Abdullah, who faces court today.

Even so, prosecutors allege that the email was part of the early planning for the Jakarta hotel bombings.

Email linked ‘prince’ to Jakarta bombings.
