The Politicians Strike Back

The Politicians Strike Back THE DPR did not unanimously approve the right to inquire on the workings of the Corruption Eradication Commission or the KPK. Suspicions abound that this move might be nothing more than a lead-up to revising the KPK Law. Legislators are worried that the KPK have gone too far in investigating the involvement of quite a few legislators in the electronic ID or e-KTP bribery case. Interview: Ex-Guantanamo Inmate, Sami Elhag He spent seven years at the infamous American Guantanamo Prison, built especially to house suspected international terrorists. Although it was later discovered that his arrest was a result of mistaken identity, Elhag, an Al Jazeera journalist, was nevertheless tortured and given unmentionably cruel treatment during those dark days. He shared his story with Tempo in between sessions at the World Press Freedom Day conference in Jakarta last week. Outreach: Understanding History through Travel OFTEN regarded as “ancient” knowledge – history is not an appealing subject to many youths, even though understanding the past provides vital clues to learning about the present and the future. Aware of this lack of interest in history, some youths began initiating projects that would be appreciated by the public, especially in their local areas. In West Kalimantan, a club invites members to visit sites with historical significance. In West Sulawesi, a college student organizes outings to historic areas.
