JOHOR BARU – The Sessions Court here witnessed a high-profile hearing on Wednesday, June 19, as five family members of the Ulu Tiram police station attacker were brought to court under heavy security. The suspects, comprising Radin Imran Radin Mohd Yassin, his Singaporean wife Rosna Jantan, and their three children, are facing a total of nine charges, including the grave accusation of supporting terrorism.

  • Rosna Jantan, 59
  • Radin Romyullah Radin Imran, 34
  • Farhah Sobrina Radin Imran, 23
  • Mariah Radin Imran, 19

All five were escorted separately to the Johor Baru Court Complex, each under intense police protection. They were brought before Sessions Court Judge Datuk Che Wan Zaidi Che Wan Ibrahim.

Charges Against Radin Imran

Encouraging Terrorism

Radin Imran faces four serious charges. The first accuses him of encouraging terrorist acts by integrating Islamic State (IS) ideologies into his family, including the now-deceased attacker, Radin Luqman, between the end of 2014 and May 17, 2024. This falls under Section 130G(a) of the Penal Code (Act 574), with a potential penalty of 30 years imprisonment and a fine.

Supporting Terrorism

The second charge alleges that Radin Imran supported terrorism by storing four homemade air rifles for IS activities. This incident reportedly took place at his residence in Kampung Sungai Tiram around 10.45 am on May 17. This charge, under Section 130J(1)(b) of the Penal Code (Act 574), could lead to life imprisonment or up to 40 years and a fine, with confiscation of the properties involved.

Pledging Allegiance to IS

Radin Imran’s third charge is for pledging loyalty (baiah) to IS leader Abu Bakar Al-Baghdadi at the same location at the end of 2014. This charge is under Section 130J(1)(a) of the Penal Code (Act 574), with similar penalties to the second charge.

Possession of Terror-Related Materials

The fourth charge involves the possession of a book titled “Hakikat Islam & Hakikat Syirik” by Abu Sulaiman Aman Abdurrahman, linked to IS. This was found at his home on May 17 and 19. He faces up to seven years imprisonment or a fine under Section 130JB(1)(a) of the Penal Code (Act 574).

Charges Against Radin Romyullah

Allegiance and Possession

Radin Romyullah faces two charges. The first is for pledging allegiance to Abu Bakar Al-Baghdadi, and the second for possessing an external hard disk containing IS-related materials, committed between the end of 2014 and May 17. He is charged under Section 130J(1)(a) and Section 130JB(1)(a) of the Penal Code (Act 574), facing life imprisonment or up to 40 years and a fine, and up to seven years imprisonment or a fine, respectively.

Charges Against Rosna Jantan, Farhah Sobrina, and Mariah

Withholding Information

Rosna Jantan and her daughters, Farhah Sobrina and Mariah, face charges of deliberately withholding information on crimes linked to terrorism between April 2017 and May 17. They could each face up to seven years in prison and a fine.

Court Proceedings

All five defendants understood the charges presented against them. Judge Che Wan Zaidi Che Wan Ibrahim set the case for remention on July 31. No bail was granted, and the judge advised the defendants to either appoint a lawyer or represent themselves in the subsequent hearings.

Prosecution Team

The prosecution was led by Mohamad Mustaffa P. Kunyalam and Fazeedah Faik from the Putrajaya Attorney General’s Department’s serious crimes unit.
