Farewell Pak Harto

Bapak Soeharto, the second President of the Republic of Indonesia had passed away today at 1.10 pm, January 27, 2008, at Pertamina Hospital, Jakarta. He was 86. May he rests in peace.

Heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family, relatives, friends, Indonesian people, us, for the loss of one of the greatest Indonesian sons. The government announced a seven-day national mourning for the late President. He deserves the respect for all of his contribution to the nation, to the countrymen, women and children; and forgiveness for all of his mistakes and wrongdoings.

The funeral procession will be done on Monday. Tempo Interaktif posted reports on its latest news (in Indonesian):

Farewell Pak Harto, you've done whatever you thought were goods for the majority of the Indonesians, and it's up to the Great Judge to decide for the place in the eternal life that you will belong to. Long live the spirit of the patriotic son of the Republic of Indonesia.
