Bakrieberry Bold


Did anyone notice the extra bold headline for this in the physical edition of The Jakarta Post this morning?

Wonder if it was a sllp by the copyeditor to depart from the Post’s design stylebook, or maybe they were puking with disgust while processing the story?

Bakrie was, before all this shebang, declared by the hagiographic Globe Asia as the richest man in Indonesia. If Unspun had such suport Unspun might be richest man too. But ten Unspun would have to be a native son and exploit nationalistic sentiments to do so.

Govt mulls helping out Bakrie to repay favor


Desy Nurhayati ,  The Jakarta Post ,  Jakarta   |  Thu, 10/16/2008 10:49 AM  |  Headlines


The Bakrie family, headed by welfare minister Aburizal Bakrie, is unlikely to go bust any time soon, as the government ponders allowing state firms to buy stakes in the clan’s companies to help avoid a possible debt default.


A failure by the family to secure immediate funding means it could risk losing the ownership of its crown jewel companies.


State enterprises minister Sofyan Djalil said the government could allow state miners PT Tambang Batubara Bukit Asam (PTBA) and PT Aneka Tambang (Antam) to acquire stakes in Bakrie unit PT Bumi Resources, the nation’s biggest coal producer.
