Tsk, tsk. What short memories we JakChatters (JakChatterers?) have.

It was only on 23 Jun in these very web pages that I ranted (i.e., made a bombastic declamation) about the poor writing and subterfuge that Tempo foisted upon us concerning the EU flight ban of Indonesian air carriers.

For proof go to: <http://jakchat.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/111531/1>

And now, less than two weeks later, Tempo comes under terrorist attack. Is there a connection between these events? I don't know but will you now agree it behooves everyone to pay attention? For years I've been inveighing that you JC sinners should stop all your drinking and fornicating. Who will pay attention now?

That is all. And have a nice day grin

What? Who said that? I only asked if there was a connection between the two events.

BTW, are you familiar with the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution grin.

Listen, I am, by my beliefs, not allowed to hurt a flea. The personal credo I live by and that has always stood me in good stead is this:

"Peace on earth, good will towards men -- or I'll kill you!" grin

Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: Indonesian graft activist investigating the police dubious assets report was brutally assaulted this morning and sustained serious injuries, two days after the molotov cocktail attack at Tempo Magazine linked to the publication of police enormous wealth.

Tama Satya Langkun, a researcher with the Indonesia Corruption Watch got 29 stitches for cuts from sharp weapons and bruises all over his body after being beaten this morning at about 4 am, after his motorcycle was ambushed by several men on two motorcycles and one car around Duren Tiga area, South Jakarta.

He was riding with a friend who witnessed the attack and took him to the nearest hospital after the attack.

Vice Coordinator of Indonesia Corruption Watch Group Emerson Yuntho said they are suspecting a move against their member after the group received several questions about Tama from unknown persons.

Danang Widoyoko Chairman of the group said the attackers stopped after Tama and his friend Kadhafi fell off their motorcycle, forcefully took off Tama's helmet identified his identification card before beating him and quickly left him with serious bleeding.

The group is reputed for its straight comments on the corrupt National Police in its attempt to collect evidence in the report on dubious giant assets owned by top police officers. Its serious and incessant pressure to the government to investigate the case include the call for the government to remove the National Police from the investigation process and hand over the entire investigation to the Corruption Eradication Commission, or a newly set team independent from the sides indicated in the report.
