Parlindungan Siregar is an Indonesian engineer identified by Spanish authorities as a close associate of an Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01) cell led by Imad Eddin Barakat Yarkas (not listed) in Spain. Siregar has also been involved in Al-Qaida training activities in Indonesia, according to the same authorities. Spanish authorities arrested 11 members of that cell in November 2001. During the course of their investigation, Spanish authorities uncovered evidence indicating that Siregar led an Al-Qaida training camp in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Siregar is believed by Spanish authorities to have arranged for several hundred Al-Qaida operatives from Europe to travel to Indonesia for training.
In May 2001, Siregar accompanied the head of the Spanish Al-Qaida cell in Madrid, Yarkas, to Poso, Indonesia. Soon afterwards, Yarkas arranged funding for an international training camp there. The Poso camp was established by Parlindungan Siregar and consisted of eight to ten small villages with small arms ranges and combat maneuver training areas.
Siregar worked as an intermediary for Agus Dwikarna (QI.D.111.03) and arranged for several hundred Al-Qaida operatives from Europe to travel to Indonesia for training.
According to a Spanish court document, Siregar recruited fighters in Spain to be sent to terrorist-military training camps in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Indonesia and was the leader of one of the existing camps in Indonesia at the service of Usama bin Laden (deceased).
Siregar has worked to achieve Al-Qaida’s terrorist goals in Southeast Asia: he is among the Jemaah Islamiyah (QE.J.92.02) members that have plotted to assassinate international leaders and planned and supported attacks such as the Bali bombing in 2002.
