Note: the Jakarta 13 May 1998 riots were hardly spontaneous and judging from what I saw - and also from the accounts of people I know – they were undoubtedly “orchestrated” by “certain elements” who were way beyond the reach of the “law”. The scary thing is not just that the ringmasters of the rape, pillage and murder got off scott-free - but also that they are still actively involved in Indonesian politics to this very day. Justice. What justice?
