We Need To Immediately Restore Public Trust
Detainees and convicts from terrorism cases jailed in the Salemba Detention Facility of the National Police's Mobile Brigade Command Headquarters in Kelapa Dua, Depok, West Java, rioted and attacked police guards and members of the Special Counter-Terrorism Unit on Tuesday last week. After taking possession of firearms, rifles, and explosives which they took from officers and the evidence room, they held six members of the Special Counter-Terrorism Unit hostage and took over the facility for 36 hours. The rioting inmates, numbering over a hundred, surrendered after being surrounded by thousands of police. Six people died during the tension-filled incident: five police officers who had been taken hostage, and one inmate.

A district court has annulled a cassation verdict against a company responsible for a forest fire. The decision has jeopardized legal certainty.
Or the first time, an opposition coalition has won in Malaysian general election. It's the victory of common sense.
"Don't you have the sense that we are living... if you can call that living... in a broken world? Yes, broken like a watch that has stopped."
