Jakarta (Antara News) – After surprisingly surviving a Garuda Indonesia flight from Tokyo to Saint Petersburg, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's personal food taster Suparman was confirmed dead today after ingesting unknown quantities of an as yet unidentified poison during a state banquet at the Kremlin last night.

WilliamHill had been offering odds of 3 to 1 against Suparman surviving the flight on an airline with a proven track record in murdering its own, though the international bookmakers were refusing to take bets on the food tester's chances of surviving a night in Moscow after the recent poisonings of two well-known Russian exiles.

Yudhoyono, in his typically diplomatic style, was continuing to refuse to comment on the alleged bungled attempt on his life, given the ongoing plans to purchase Russian fighter planes.

However, a spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that Indonesia would be doubling its order. “We will probably triple the order if we are forced to stay here for another state dinner,” he told Antara.

Slament, Suparman's replacement, was meanwhile understood to be seeking an immediate flight home. “I will even consider flying Aeroflot,” the visably shaken West Javan said.
