He used to love being on the spotlight, so why does he go missing now?
Rizieq is being sought after by the Jakarta Police as he already failed to show up twice for questioning as a witness in a pornography case — the one involving a series of raunchy messages and photos of him and a woman named Firza.
Jakarta Police Spokesperson Sr. Commr. Argo Yuwono said on Monday that they would issue a warrant.
What we know so far about Rizieq's travel plan
On April 27, Rizieq was known to go on Umra (pilgrimage) in Saudi Arabia, but has not returned to Indonesia since.
But then, Rizieq was said to move to Malaysia to work on his doctorate dissertation at the Islamic Science University of Malaysia (USIM).
FPI spokesperson confirmed to Kompas yesterday afternoon that the cleric is still in Malaysia with his staff named Muchsin.
The Jakarta Police announced on Friday that they would detain the firebrand leader of Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), Rizieq Shihab, as soon as he returned to the country after Rizieq failed to show up twice for questioning as a witness in a pornography case.
“We have sent Rizieq an invitation for questioning, but he did not respond nor attend the questioning as scheduled. Therefore, once he returns, we will detain him immediately,” Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono said, adding that the details would be elaborated on later by the investigators.
As a witness, Rizieq has twice evaded a police questioning for a pornography case allegedly involving him and a treason suspect, Firza Husein.
The police first summoned Rizieq, Firza, Rizieq’s wife and a friend of Firza’s as witnesses on April 25. However, none of them showed up.
Excerpts from [http://www.thestar.com.my/…/is-fpis-rizieq-shihab-a-threat…/]
1. There are reports that Rizieq and some members of his family flew in from Saudi Arabia to Kuala Lumpur International Airport on May 5.
2. Rizieq is believed to have been invited by a Malaysian political party to share his experience and opinion on Indonesian politics, especially on how the Islamism movement brought down Ahok.
“They will use the playbook FPI used against Ahok in Malaysia,” a political observer familiar with Malaysian and Indonesian politics told me.

Hmm .. It seems the Najib administration is turning Malaysia into a magnet for undesirable elements from Indonesia, India, Daesh terrorists (deported by Turkey), etc.
Here's the scary part - Did any of these undesirable elements play a role in instigating several mysterious and unsolved kidnappings?
