President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono named two National Heroes on Thursday: physician Johannes Leimena and Indonesian Army officer Johannes Abraham Dimara. Not named were former presidents Soeharto or Gus Dur.
Honorary Title and Order-of-Merit Council member Jimly Asshiddiqie said the two figures were “meritorious commanders and heroes” during the nation’s struggle for independence.
