After the Bali ‘02 Bombings , when the extent of his involvement in committing the attack as a coordinator was exposed through the investigation, a reward of $1 million was offered by the Australian, USA and Indonesian governments for information leading to his capture. Umar Patek managed to flee from Indonesia with Dulmatin and Zulkarnaen.
In 05/2003 Umar Patek began to operate from Pawas, which is near Cotabato, South Philippines, in coordinating attacks in Indonesia such as the Marriott Hotel on 08/05/2003. On 10/2003 Umar Patek, Zulkarmaen and Dulmatin, planned an attack, which was foiled, against the South Asian Anti Terror Convention scheduled to 10/06/2003. Umar Patek participated in the setup of the attack against the AUSTRALIAN Embassy in Jakarta on 09/09/2004. His main role was to track down, recruit and train the right people for the planned attacks.
In 04/2004 Umar Patek contacted, through his assistant Sunata, a financier from Saudi Arabia known as Abu Mohammad who supported his activity. The financial support lasted up to late 2006.
In late 2005 Umar Patek was one of the guides at an Abu Sayyaf training camp in Mindanao, in the Southern Philippines.
Umar Patek was reported killed on 09/14/2006 in the Sulu province of the Philippines but this report was never confirmed. Umar Patek is, probably, still at large (see – Dul-Matin Death). The Indonesian police confirmed, on Sunday 03/14/2010, that Umar Patek is still in the island-province of Sulu aided by homegrown terrorist group Abu Sayyaf.
A terrorism research group has strong proof that INDOMESIAM JI (JI) bomb expert and alleged Abu Sayyaf trainer Umar Patek is in the Philippines. A video provided by the Philippine Institute for Peace, Violence and Terrorism Research to ABS-CBN News showed, in early 11/2010, Umar Patek carrying a rifle. The group said the video was taken in Tawi-Tawi province just recently.
