INDONESIA--A popular Muslim cleric was questioned by the police on Monday about claims by 11 young men that he molested them years ago.
Despite the serious nature of the allegations, the cleric, identified only as H., had ignored other police summonses, saying his preaching schedule was too busy.
“He was questioned as a witness,” Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr Rikwanto said. “After [his deposition] is crosschecked, the information will be analyzed.”
Riwanto said the police had already questioned the accusers and conducted psychological tests on seven who are still minors.
“The others were not tested because they are adults,” he said. “We will then determine whether the accused really did what he is reported to have done.” (Read more.)
