ISIS recruiting domestic workers in Hong Kong, Singapore — top official

by | News

Nov. 11, 19 | 3:16 pm

Three domestic workers in Singapore were used by terrorist group ISIS to promote their cause online. The workers reportedly donated money to the militant group and have been radicalized with one expressing readiness to be a suicide bomber in Syria. This, according to a CNN report, citing Singapore’s Ministry of Home Affairs.

The domestic helpers were all Indonesian nationals and were arrested last September.

Authorities said the women were involved in terror financing. They are now facing 10 years of imprisonment and fines of up to $500,000 Singaporean dollars.

CNN has reported that the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore also confirmed the arrest and they are now providing legal assistance to the women. No formal charges have been filed so far.

Terrorism experts said there is an increasing trend of domestic helpers being radicalized in Asian cities like Singapore and Hong Kong.

ISIS is also shifting its focus after its caliphate in the Middle East fell from Western forces.

“They are preyed upon and exploited by militant cells who essentially view them as cash cows. They have a stable income, speak English and usually have a broad international network, making them ideal targets,” an Indonesian think tank tells CNN.

There are about 250,000 domestic workers in Singapore and 385,000 workers in Hong Kong. Most of the domestic workers radicalized by the terrorist group came from Indonesia.
