The looming release of hundreds of militants from Indonesia’s prisons is raising fears some will join forces with the Islamic State group. About 200 convicted militants are due for release in the next two years, and experts say inadequate de-radicalisation efforts mean many will leave jail with their ideology intact. According to terrorism expert Taufic Andrie, prisons are still the hotbed of radicalism, terrorism and recruitment in Indonesia. Lax detention laws have allowed detainees to keep preaching behind bars, extending their reach through the use of laptops and smartphones. Thus far, an estimated 60 Indonesian are believed to have joined IS.
