JAKARTA, Indonesia – The trial of terror suspect Cahya Fitrianta, 26, began on Monday (October 8th) at the West Jakarta District Court, local media reported.

An alleged member of the Abu Umar network, Cahya is accused of raising money last year to finance terrorist military-style training in Poso, Sulawesi by hacking online investment sites, transferring assets and manipulating member data.

"The defendant has knowingly collected funds partially or completely used for terrorism activities," said prosecutor Rini Hartati, according to DetikNews.

Investigators say Cahya, who worked as cell-phone technician, managed to raise Rp. 500 million ($52,000) for the terror network. His trial resumes next week.
