Indonesia Vows to Stand Up To Malaysia Over Ambalat Clash
Ambalat. As tension rose over the disputed Ambalat waters, the National Police dispatched investigators on Tuesday to the Ambalat and Tarakan areas of East Kalimantan to help the local police in the wake of two recent standoffs between the ships of the Indonesian and Malaysian navies.
Brig. Gen. Boy Salamudin, the director of special crimes, told reporters at the Marine Police headquarters in Tarakan, just three hours sailing time from Ambalat, that the police were there to stop Malaysian vessels from illegally fishing in Indonesian waters.
“We will not sit by and let Malaysian vessels steal our fish,” he said. “The military is in charge of our country’s defense while the police will ensure our national security. We are protecting our jurisdiction and our own sovereignty.”

SBY Says He Raised Concerns About Manohara
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said on Tuesday that he had raised concerns a month ago in the case of Indonesian-American teenage model Manohara Odelia Pinot, who claims to have been sexually and physically abused by her husband, a Malaysian prince.
He had done so by addressing the matter with Malaysian Ambassador to Indonesia Datu Zainal Abidin Mahama Zain when he was in Bali on May 2 to open a meeting of the Asian Development Bank board of governors.
“I was asking for clarification about this issue,” Yudhoyono said.
The president said he spoken to Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda and Indonesian Ambassador to Malaysia Da’i Bachtiar asking them to look into the matter.
“I told them to handle this issue fully and to be aware of the line between domestic affairs, spousal — or family — issues and human rights violations,” Yudhoyono said.
“We have the privilege [as a government] to be able to enter into the human rights domain.”
