The wife of one of Southeast Asia's most wanted terror suspects left prison Monday after serving 27 months in jail for helping hide her still-at-large husband, an official said.
Munfiatun, 30, was convicted of sheltering Noordin Top, a Malaysian accused of being a key leader of Jemaah Islamiyah, a regional terror network blamed for a string of suicide bombings in Indonesia, the most deadly being 2002 nightclub bombings on Bali island that killed 202 people.
Munfiatun, who goes by a single name, told the warden of Malang women's prison on Indonesia's main island of Java that she would return to her hometown, also on Java.
"I have heard that my neighbors there are not concerned that I am the wife of a terrorist," she told the warden in front of journalists.
