National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Ronny F. Sompie said that counterterrorism unit Densus 88 had arrested terrorist suspect, 36-year-old Toni Saronggalo, in Lamongan, East Java, on Sunday evening.
Ronny said that Tony, a chicken trader with five children, allegedly assisted now-deceased terrorist leader, Dulmatin, to set up training grounds for the Jemaah Islamiyah militant group in Jantho, Aceh.
'We have been on the lookout for the suspect [Tony] for an extremely long time. He is currently still being questioned by investigators,' he said.
Dulmatin was once Southeast Asia's highest-profile terrorist leader and one of the masterminds of the 2002 Bali bombings, among many other devastating bombings between 2000 and 2003 in Jakarta and Mojokerto in Surabaya, East Java.
However, the al-Qaeda trained man was eventually shot dead in a police raid in Pamulang, South Tangerang, Banten, in 2010.
Toni's wife, Musmainah, denied knowing of her husband's alleged involvement with the militant group and insisted that he had no other activities apart from chicken trading, as reported by kompas.com.
'He didn't do anything in particular during his free time,' she said.
