JAKARTA - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will call a press conference in connection with the legal case of Youth and Sports Minister Andi Mallarangeng.
"True, (the youth and sports minister) met with the President this morning. The President will call a press conference (later in the day)," presidential spokesman Julian Aldrin Pasha said on Friday.
Andi Mallarangeng arrived at the Presidential Palace at around 08.00 a.m. and later held a closed-door meeting with the President. But Julian refused to elaborate on what the President and Andi Mallarangeng discussed.
