The man, Mukhlis bin Muhammad, worked for the Aceh Ulema Council (MPU,) the Islamic lawmaking body in Aceh, a semi-autonomous region of Sumatra, Indonesia’s largest island.

The charlatan was busted by Aceh religious police in a car with a married woman near a tourist beach in September, BBC Indonesia reported.
