After landing at the airport at around 09:00 Adisumarmo, President Yudhoyono and entourage wore a dark suit compact transit-time in Pendapa Karanganyar Regent. They await the arrival of the Hercules aircraft carrying Suharto's body to Solo.

Entourage minister who joined the presidential aircraft Boeing 737-500 of Garuda Indonesia, among others, National Police Chief Pol Gen Sutanto, Cabinet Secretary Sudi Silalahi, State Secretary Hatta Radjasa, Transportation Jusman Syafii Djamal, and Home Affairs Minister Mardiyanto. There were Coordinating Minister for Economy Boediono, Minister of Industry Fahmi Idris, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Purnomo Yusgiantoro, and members Wantimpres Ali Alatas.

Although one group, only the First Lady Ani Yudhoyono, Hatta Radjasa, Sudi Silalahi, TNI Commander General Djoko Santoso, four head of military force, and the Police who accompanied the president with a car.

Other ministers of tourism buses transported. Presidential motorcade arrived at the Astana Giribangun around 10:30. A parking lot is only 50 meters from the cupola Argosari relatively narrow. Just enough for the cars of precedence presidential convoy members. Since it was crowded with thousands of people, the bus carrying the minister was forced to park in the Field Karangbangun, about two miles below the Astana Giribangun.

Enough to climb steep terrain, so that ministers should be taken with a motorcycle taxi to the cemetery entrance. No less than 30 motorcycle taxi were deployed to bring the party's top officials.

From the entrance, party ministers still had to walk up about 300 yards into the parking lot B. Located about 150 meters from the cupola Argosari. However, the journey becomes heavy because of the parking lot of the ministers had to climb about 500 stairs to get to the parking lot A. As a result, almost all the ministers who headed a five-over-looked when it was struggling in the parking lot A.

"I came as the Indonesian people. This is proof he (Suharto) is very loving people, so well loved by the people," said Haryono Suyono while arranging panting breath.

The position is important and close relationship with the deceased in the past also seems to be no guarantees Astana Giribangun can enter easily. Former Vice President Try Sutrisno who arrived late (around 13:30 o'clock) to walk from the Market Matesih. The market is located five kilometers beneath the Astana Giribangun.

Finally, Pak Harto Bebar-Right Died

A. Mustofa Bisri

Finally, Pak Harto has really left us. President's longest-ruling Indonesia was already eight times out of the hospital. And the last really horrendous people who ruled for 32 years. Press as if to deliberately bring Pertamina hospital where Suharto was treated, to our homes so we can all go "wait" bit. After that, we all wake up and drove her body to the tomb of a far-distant days had prepared meticulously.

General strongest when the power capable of conjuring many smart people become the ducks, the people's representatives meneluh become mute, and made the press lay down for so long, it turns out, finally just lay helpless, and then surrendered to the angel of death.

We remember Bung Karno, the first president who was also so great, that the gallant to "go to hell" about America, even loudly declared out of the United Nations international agencies, in fact, end up helpless and surrendered to the angel of death.

In addition to the difference when dead-Bung Karno died at age Soeharto, Soeharto died while still in their own day-. Both the first and second presidents, have much in common. They are both long in power, are equally kontoversial-much-hated and loved at the same time together to bring issues that do not complete when he died.

Controversial they may result from too long in power. And they were in power too long, especially because his followers are cowards and ordered. (Remember, once the Assembly's decision to lift Bung Karno lifetime and subsequent decisions that the Assembly continues to encourage Pak Harto).

Regarding the problems that did not complete until both died perhaps because we're not accustomed to dealing with the problem until resolved. Certainly affected their family and perhaps the nation's history.

Waba'du, however, now Pak Harto has really gone and we still do not know exactly, whether he is guilty or not. However, for the careful, especially since Soeharto, Haji Muhammad Soeharto, was a Muslim who believed in the final days, his family and his heirs ought to behave like a family in my area.

In my area, if there is a Muslim or a Muslim dies, the corpse at the time of departure ceremony, usually a family representative told the audience that the presence of the wake: "Deceased was a human being, then if the deceased in his lifetime relationships with their fathers and mothers have error, please be so good as our family fathers and mothers forgive him. If in between fathers and mothers there was a case concerning the rights Adami to be borne by the deceased, if if it can in release dependents, the family is very grateful and thank you. But if not, should immediately contact the families concerned to be resolved with the best and will not be bumps in the Day of Judgement. "

However, as a faithful servant, Soeharto, as the family and anyone who loved him, would have wanted a better life in the hereafter. It's far more important than mere status as high as anything in this mortal world.

Innaa lillahi wainaa ilaihi raaji'uun.

Defended Mahathir and Lee Kuan Yew
SINGAPORE - The body of former Indonesian President of the Second H. M. Suharto was buried at Astana Giri Bangun yesterday (28 / 1). Death of former New Order ruler even then reopen the old romance with a number of influential world leaders.

A series of praise and appreciation skated from people who had "close" to him. The great figures of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew said that Suharto was awarded a place worthy of respect in the history of Indonesia.

In a letter addressed to the eldest daughter of Sandalwood, Siti Hardiyanti Rukmana, Lee praised the perseverance in restoring Indonesia's economic downturn in the era of 1965. "For decades, Pak Harto has shown identity as someone who holds to its commitment. Promise always met. He was a man of quiet character, but resilient," said Lee.

Lee who is currently Senior Minister of Singapore from his son's cabinet, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, said the first time met with President Soeharto in 1970. Closeness Lee formed because he served as Singapore's prime minister during the Suharto to power as leader of the New Order since 1966.

Suharto placed his position for almost ten years ago in the midst of a wave of protests and riots that hit Indonesia since the falling value of rupiah which was affected by regional economic crisis. Lee had visited Soeharto, who lay in the Central Pertamina Hospital in Jakarta two weeks ago, before the death of the second RI president's pick on Sunday (27 / 1).

Former Prime Minister (PM), Malaysia's Mahathir Muhammad also described Suharto as a leader and a great world statesman. The man then defend the dynasty that has been adjudged the world as dictatorial and corrupt government.

Mahathir said that the victims of political violence that is estimated to reach 500,000 people is nonsense. "I understand very well with the facts. I know what happened in Indonesia, when it is full of conditions of anarchy. Even so, I knew that Suharto had never ordered the murder," he asserted.

Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer who frequently criticizes the Father of Development for the negative track record this time appearing with profound condolences. Downer expressed amazement with his strength in leading Indonesia. "I can not be denied, indeed greedy, dictatorial, and has a record of human rights violations that quite a lot. However, it is recognized or not he has great strength as a leader," he said.

Ambassador of the United States (U.S.) in Jakarta, Cameron Hume, praised him as a historic figure who managed to achieve remarkable economic development. But, he added that Suharto's legacy will probably always attached to some controversy. (AFP / BBC / Zul / bad)
