A Shitty Christmas
For the past umpteen months my colleagues and I expected our Christmas hols to start on Thursday. This evening, as I lingered a little late, my boss stated that we go on leave on Friday. I shudder to think of my colleagues' reaction when they hear the glad tidings tomorrow morning.
Someone else who is not very happy this evening is Pollycarpus Budihari Priyanto
who has just been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for planning the murder of a top human rights activist, Munir, during a flight on the national carrier Garuda last year.
'? I thought he was charged with the actual murder, through spiking Munir's juice with arsenic. Whatever, it has always been clear that Polycarpus was being set up and this is verified by the current head of the State Intelligence Agency (BIN), Syamsir Siregar
who, earlier today at the State Palace, said that it still hadn't been revealed who were behind Pollycarpus.
Gossip about Siregar's predecessor, Lt. Gen. (ret) AM. Hendropriyono
, has refused to die down, mainly because of Hendropriyono's total lack of co-operation with the Presidential Fact Finding Team
, whose report is still gathering dust in SBY's office.
We all wish Munir's widow, Suciwati, family and friends a closure of this sad affair. Unfortunately, we must continue to Seek Truth and Justice
