Former President Yudhoyono feels he is being suspected over the loss of the Munir murder report, heightening tensions between the offices of the past and current presidents.
The findings of the fact-finding team could be a new legal reason for a deeper investigation into the assassination of Munir. Some key witnesses have yet to be questioned.
Playing With the Fire of Conservatism
The most recent study by the State Islamic University (UIN) in Jakarta yielded surprising -- and worrying -- results: over 80 percent of the respondents rejected the idea of a non-Muslim leader and the establishment of other houses of worship in their areas.
UIN's Islamic and Social Studies Center (PPIM) conducted the study on 500 schoolteachers of (the Muslim) religion in five provinces at the end of last year. Some respondents also rejected the idea of educators of other faiths teaching in a public school.
