Indonesia court jails three 'gunmen' for aiding JI

Three Indonesian "gunmen" were jailed for up to nine years for aiding from regional Islamist network Jemaah Islamiah (JI) wanted for several deadly attacks, a panel of judges told a court on Monday.

One of the men, Parmin, had helped protect the identity of Noordin Top, a fugitive accused of planing a series of bombings in Indonesia, said the panel of judges at the Central Jakarta court.

Parmin, who was jailed for eight years, had met Top at least twice and recorded a video containing threats by the fugitive Malaysian national that was planned to be sent to the Al Jazeera television network, the judges said.
Another of the men, Agus Purwantoro, a doctor from Surabaya, East Java, was also jailed for raising funds for JI activities.

The third of them, Abdul Rohim bin Thoyib, also known as Abu Husna, was also convicted of aiding wanted people.
