Rizieq Shihah (Photo:Deny Irwanto), Jakarta: The Jakarta Metro Police issued an arrest warrant for the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) Rizieq Shihab on Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

Rizieq was named as a suspect in a pornography case a day earlier. Female activist Firza Hussein was named as the first suspect in the same pornography case earlier this month.

An alleged sex chat between Rizieq and Firza was uploaded to the internet few months ago. The alleged sex chat between the two people was gone viral in social media immediately.

"Investigators will visit his home. Investigators will inquire about his whereabouts," the Jakarta Metro Police spokesperson Senior Commissioner Raden Prabowo Argo Yuwono said.

The controversial cleric reportedly has been staying in foreign countries, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia, over the past few weeks.
