Detachment 88 was formed after the 2002 Bali bombings[4] and became operational in 2003[5]. Detachment 88 has disrupted the activities of Central Java-based Islamist movement Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) and many of its top operatives have been arrested or killed.[4] Abu Dujana, suspected leader of JI's military wing and its possible emir, was apprehended on June 9, 2007.[6] Azahari Husin was shot and killed in 2005. Indonesian terrorist organization suffered further blow when probably its only last surviving and at-large prominent figure, Noordin M. Top is killed in a shootout against Detachment 88 on September 17th 2009 at Solo, Central Java.
Detachment 88 is assisted by foreign agencies, including the Australian Federal Police, in forensic sciences including DNA analysis, and communications monitoring. In pre-emptive strikes in Java, the unit thwarted attack plans to material assembly.[4]
Detachment 88 operators were involved in an operation in Poso, where 10 people, including a policemen, were killed in a gunfight during a high-risk suspect arrest operation on January 22, 2007. [7]
In 2007, Detachment 88 arrested and interrogated West Papuan human rights lawyer, Iwangin Sabar Olif, and charged him with incitement and insulting the head of state, because he sent an SMS text message critical of the Indonesian military and president[3]. Detachment 88's operations include using US intelligence officers in its Jakarta headquarters to tap the phone calls and read the SMS text messages of Indonesian civilians.[8]
According to Brig. Gen. Pranowo, the Indonesian Police Headquarter Anti-Terror Director, the number '88' is taken from the number of Australian fatalities in the 2002 Bali bombing, the largest number from a single country
