Haven or Hiding Place

Haven or Hiding Place A MASSIVE pile of documents leaked out from the Mossack Fonseca law fi rm based in Panama has laid bare the names of people who, for differing reasons, have invested their money outside of their own countries. Listed among them are more than 800 rich Indonesians: mostly business people but quite a few public offi cials. Did they do it to evade taxes, launder dirty money or because they have little faith in the system? National: Jakarta Bay Reclamation Politics THE KPK’s recent arrest of Jakarta Council member Mohamad Sanusi for bribery over the Jakarta bay reclamation project has exposed the role of the Agung Sedayu and Agung Podomoro property giants, led by the super-rich and mysterious businessmen Sugianto Kusuma, better known as Aguan. A more important question is whether the scandal will affect Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama’s reelection chances, given that one of his trusted staff may have been involved in facilitating the deal. Outreach: Millennial Torchbearers NEXT month, 38 youths of the Pencerah Nusantara (Nation’s Torchbearers) program created by the President’s Special Envoy for the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) will begin their work in the health sector around the country. Tempo English recently covered their activities at Mentawai, West Sumatra, in Berau, West Kalimantan and in Lindu in South Sulawesi, where they are expected to help out at rural health outposts.
