JAKARTA : A few hundred metres from the hospital where the former Indonesian president is struggling for his life, human rights groups pressed on with their demands for Mr Suharto to be tried for corruption and human rights abuses.

27 of the most influential civil society organisations in Indonesia have formed an alliance called KERAS - People's Alliance To Try Suharto.

Their members gathered at a busy overhead bridge to collect signatures from the public for their cause.

The alliance said similar efforts will be carried out throughout the country.

"We will go to the hospital with these signatures to show that the public still want Mr Suharto to stand trial," said Yoseph D Lali, People's Alliance To Try Suharto, KERAS

Since the 86-year-old former leader's health took a turn for the worse, segments of the Indonesian population have called for his pardon.

Among these are Golkar, the party that was in power during Mr Suharto's 32-year rule, and the Islamic Prosperous Justice Party or PKS.

Human rights groups oppose such a move.

"We are willing to forgive him on humanitarian grounds. However, he has not been convicted, so there is no basis to pardon him," said Lali.

Indonesia's Supreme Court has ruled that Mr Suharto can longer stand trial for criminal charges due to his ailing health.

But a civil case against him will continue as his family has rejected a government's offer for an out-of-court settlement.

Several charity foundations once headed by the former leader are alleged to have been misappropriated more than US$1.4 billion.

Heated debate on whether to pardon the former president is expected to continue for some time to come.

Human rights groups have urged the government to set up an independent commission to help arrive at some form of closure. With the issue splitting Indonesian society, they hope the authorities will respond to their call soon. - CNA /ls

Uncle Suharto could learn a lot from Mr. Ledger.


It was very amusing that they didn't let Habibie in to see him though.

Ex-Indonesian Dictator Suharto Dies
By ANTHONY DEUTSCH 15 minutes ago

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) Former dictator Suharto, an army general who crushed Indonesia's communist movement and pushed aside the country's founding father to usher in 32 years of tough rule that saw up to a million political opponents killed, died Sunday. He was 86.

"He has died," Dr. Christian Johannes told The Associated Press, adding that he died at 1:10 p.m.

Finally toppled by mass street protests in 1998, the U.S. Cold War ally's departure opened the way for democracy in this predominantly Muslim nation of 235 million people and he withdrew from public life, rarely venturing from his comfortable villa on a leafy lane in the capital.

Suharto had ruled with a totalitarian dominance that saw soldiers stationed in every village, instilling a deep fear of authority across this Southeast Asian nation of some 6,000 inhabited islands that stretch across more than 3,000 miles.

Since being forced from power, he had been in and out of hospitals after strokes caused brain damage and impaired his speech. Blood transfusions and a pacemaker prolonged his life, but he suffered from lung, kidney, liver and heart problems.

Suharto was admitted to a hospital on Jan. 4 and had been in intensive care. Over the past week his physicians had spoken of a recovery, but that had changed dramatically by Sunday, when his condition took a sharp downturn.

Am falling off the wagon right now, opening bottle of whisky to celebrate. If only the ruling elite's reprehensible sycophancy to the Suharto clan would die with him.

There's some dreadful shit on TV at the moment. Plenty of sycophantic rubbish and shots of the old bugger in rice fields.

Anyone here work at The Jakarta Post? Don't report that the Australian reaction to Suharto's death was mixed/whatever-lah... Aint nothing about it - all attention instead on retirement of an Australian cricket player and a tennis match happening tonight. Though a few people in Oz are getting cunted to celebrate his long overdue demise.
