front page of Kompas this morning "Keluarga Soeharto Minta Maaf kepada Rakyat" (Soeharto family says sorry to people). article states that one of soeharto's daughters, siti, issued a stock-standard javanese apology for any "mistakes" that may have been made over the course of the soeharto regime.

great timing. the old man is nearly dead, and *now* he says sorry. or maybe it's just his family seeing the writing on the wall and preparing for the inevitable demands for the family to be taken to court once soeharto is dead.

tommy's wife filed for divorce last week, so it seems the rats are bailing out of the sinking ship.

and now soeharto is handing out largess to the displaced residents of the merapi volcano, using one of his infamous foundations to do it! this guy has no shame. he, or more likely his family, are clearly trying to buy some credibility before he kicks the bucket. pathetic. unfortunately, indonesians generally have very short memories; they'll probably buy it.


Soeharto Bantu Pengungsi Merapi

Magelang, Minggu

Mantan Presiden Soeharto melalui Yayasan Gotong Royong Kemanusiaan miliknya memberikan bantuan sebesar Rp100 juta untuk penanganan pengungsian warga lereng Gunung Merapi.

Penyerahan bantuan itu dilakukan putri Pak Harto yang juga Bendahara Yayasan Gotong Royong Kemanusiaan, Siti Hediyati (Titik), di Magelang, Sabtu (20/5), diterima Wakil Gubernur Jateng Ali Mufiz. "Kami menyampaikan amanah bapak. Saat bapak terbangun saya bilang (tentang Merapi--Red), bapak diam, tetapi tiba-tiba menyuruh yayasan cepat membantu pengungsi," tutur Titik.

Menurut Titik, Pak Harto yang sedang sakit masih mengingat masyarakat yang mengalami musibah bencana Gunung Merapi.

Rp100 juta is very little. How many pengungsi are they?

i'm not sure, but i think it's around 20,000 or so. that works out to Rp5,000 per person. hmmm. soeharto's family obviously want kudos on the cheap.

What the..! 20.000 pengungsi, they got a Rp5000/person, and they only get a piece of tempe goreng I guess!
why don't they (tutut, titik, and that motherfucka' Ari..the bad boy who wasting people money in the US, partying and drives a lamborgini at school) make donation for the pengungsi!

Rp100 juta is a fraction of what it cost to ferry tommy back and forth to jakarta by helicopter every weekend for the past few years when he was living in his island prison on the south coast of java.

Suharto leaves hospital for home

The former Indonesian President, Suharto, has left hospital in Jakarta after almost four weeks of treatment to stem intestinal bleeding.
Doctors at Pertamina hospital said his condition had improved after several operations and he could go home.

Mr Suharto, 84, who ruled Indonesia for 32 years until ousted in 1998, smiled weakly as he left hospital.

Charges of embezzling $600m (322m) from the state were dropped recently on account of his ill health.

Pertamina Hospital Director Dr. Adji Suprajitno said the former leader's kidneys and intestines were now functioning more effectively.

"Suharto wanted to go home because he has been hospitalized for so long, and the team of doctors also believed that medical treatment for Suharto can be moved to his house," he said, according to the Associated Press news agency.

RISE AND FALL OF SUHARTO
Born in Java, June 1921
As army minister, plays a central role in helping Sukarno overcome a coup in 1965
Becomes president March 1967
Modernisation programmes in the 70s and 80s raise living standards
East Timor forcibly annexed in late 1975
Asian economic crisis of the 1990s hits Indonesian economy
Spiralling prices and discontent force him to resign in May 1998
Judges rule he is unfit to stand trial for corruption in 2000

He was discharged despite being in critical condition for several weeks. Only last week, doctors said his condition was deteriorating.

Mr Suharto has suffered several strokes since he left office in 1998 amid street protests and riots.

Earlier this month, Indonesian prosecutors issued a letter to close the corruption case against him on health grounds.

The move angered his critics and human rights activists who also blame him for hundreds of thousands of deaths during his regime.
