Indonesia: police to deploy thousands for anti-corruption protest

Updated On: Dec 09, 2009

In the latest development in the ongoing anticorruption saga in Indonesia, thousands of police officers will be deployed to maintain order at an expected anti-graft protest tomorrow in Jakarta. The protests will coincide with World Anti-Corruption Day.

Popular pressure in Indonesia continues to mount over corruption allegations against the Yudhoyono government. The president has been slow to discipline the officials involved, causing onlookers to call his actions "out of touch" with the strong Indonesian sentiment against anticorruption.
