So our friend Bakrie has recently been in a bit of trouble but was bailed out by a Singaporean Hedge Fund called Brentwood Ventures. However it would seem that nobody had heard of this hedge fund and when a search was done it came to light that it was set up in June last year. When one of the director for this company was contacted she said she was a nominee director and it was "something to do with Bakrie" saying it was "very sensitive" and that she took her orders from a Bakrie in house lawyer. A few days later she said she had been confused and said Brentwood was like a hedge fund and was independent of Bakrie.

Further investigations show this director is also a director of another company that is owned by Bakrie.

Really? It gets worse. How fitting that Indonesia's richest man should also be its dodgiest.

Ah, I saw the fuss and wondered what it was all about. Just like the fire in Pertamina's offices a couple of years ago. Just one stray bit of cigarette ash...
