It was a long, long journey from Sidoarjo to Jakarta, but for Hari Suwandi and Hartowiyono, the journey was the least they could do after years of unsuccessful attempts to obtain the remaining compensation promised by oil and gas company Lapindo Brantas.
“We’ve come 847 kilometers to see the President to ask about the compensation that was promised by Lapindo and we are not going home until we’ve met the President,” Hari told reporters on Monday.
It is time for the person who is responsible for the Lapindo disaster to be held responsible.
We all know that person now has political ambitions and is responsible for the removal of one of the best and finest ministers from the SBY Cabinet.
