Is Tommy Soeharto a Murderer?
The problem as Tommy sees it is that the article was about his business interests in a resort in Bali, and therefore there is no correlation with any previous actions of his. I thought that "Garuda" was the in-flight magazine that you get when you fly with Garuda.
It would seem that Tommy and his legal representatives have forgotten that he is in fact a convicted murderer. He did ten years for the premeditated assassination of a Supreme Court judge. This, if I am not mistaken, is a fact of life; a fact of Tommy Soeharto's life that he cannot escape.
Nevertheless, Tommy seems to think that he deserves a public apology, and that the apology should be published in a national newspaper. Perhaps at the same time he can instruct his lawyers to place a public apology in the same paper noting his remorse over his criminal activities, including an apology to the family of the judge, Syafiuddin Kartasasmita, who he ordered murdered for having the courage to sentence Tommy Soeharto to prison for breaking the law; graft I believe. If not, then Tommy should take his lawsuit and shove it where the sun don't shine. As a matter of fact he should just take his frivolous little suit and shove it where the sun don't shine.
To be perfectly honest, the title of murderer should, and must, follow Tommy wherever he goes.
The original news on this one comes from Detik (in Indonesian).
