Here is the statement from the Ministry of Home Affairs:

Singaporean Masyhadi bin Mas Selamat (Masyhadi) was deported to Singapore on 30 Oct 2013 from Indonesia where he was earlier arrested.

Masyhadi, aged 24, went to Indonesia with his family members in 2002 to join his father, Singapore Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) leader Mas Selamat bin Kastari (Mas Selamat) who had fled Singapore following the commencement of investigations into the Singapore JI terrorist network in Dec 2001.

Mas Selamat and his family had taken refuge in Indonesia with the assistance of the Indonesian JI network.

Masyhadi continued to remain in Indonesia when his family members returned to Singapore after Mas Selamat was arrested in Indonesia in 2003. Masyhadi is presently under investigation to ascertain if he has been involved in activities that are inimical to the security of Singapore.
