Trial By Fire

Trial By Fire THE panel of judges at the North Jakarta State Court found former Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) guilty of blasphemy and convicted him to a two-year immediate prison sentence. The verdict goes against the prosecutor’s finding that no blasphemy had been proven and that it had demanded a suspended prison sentence. Ahok has appealed. What kind of political pressure was behind this unusual conviction? National: Should Hardline Group HTI Be Banned? THE Government has decided to begin legal proceedings on the dissolution of the hardline Islamic group Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI). Campaigning aggressively to establish an Islamic caliphate, the group is seen as opposing the state ideology Pancasila and the nation’s 1945 Constitution. It will be quite an eff ort given HTI’s growing influence in the country. Outreach: Clean Water For All NOT every Indonesian has easy access to clean and potable water. In 2014, only 68 percent of the population are able to get clean water. The government has set a target to achieve 100 percent access to water by 2019. A village-owned water company in East Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara provides clean water to its community. Meanwhile in East Sumba, the Regional Water Company (PDAM) at East Nusa Tenggara along with the Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative have improved their water services with the help of the community.
