Abdul Majid was detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) in June 2011. He had undergone military training at MILF's Camp Abu Bakar in Mindanao and aided the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in procuring funds and weapons components before he was caught.

He cooperated with authorities and was released from detention and issued with a restriction order on 17 June 2013.

"While on RO, he was cooperative and responsive to rehabilitation efforts," MFA said. "As such, he no longer requires RO supervision."

Persons undergoing RO supervision face restrictions on their activities and places of residence and employment. They may be subject to curfews, are required to notify the authorities of his or her movements, and prohibited from addressing public meetings or from holding office in, taking part in the activities of, or acting as adviser to, any organization or association. They may also be disallowed to travel to parts of Singapore or abroad.
