Trials and travails of Indonesia's richest man Publicity-shy paper and plantation magnate Sukanto Tanoto is in Indonesia's national headlines after topping two high-profile lists.

It did not say where or how it had obtained the document.

Asep, a Jakarta parking-lot attendant, rejoiced in 1998 when Indonesian strongman Suharto was overthrown after three decades of authoritarian rule. But democracy hasn't proved to be quite the boon he and so many other Indonesians expected. In some ways, says Asep, his life is worse now than ever before. Under Suharto, he says, at least he only had to bribe one person—a stadium security officer—for the right to manage the lot at Senayan Stadium. But now, Asep complains, he is routinely approached by people claiming to be policemen, soldiers, sports department officials and political-party officers, all demanding baksheesh of a few thousand rupiah or a pack of cigarettes. These kickbacks often eat away almost half of his meager earnings of $2 a day, but "it's hard not to give," says Asep, "because you don't know anymore who is really in charge."

Just when investors might have been thinking it was safe to look at Indonesia a little less skeptically, the biggest banking scandal to hit the country since the central bank liquidity scandal, this one involving Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) and allegedly fraudulent letters of credit, has shattered confidence yet again. With BNI marked for semi-privatization next year, the scandal could hardly have come at a worse time. It highlights concerns raised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over corporate governance in Indonesia and the central Bank Indonesia's failure to detect the scam until a year after it allegedly began.

Despite fear, Indonesia marks Christmas in peace Christians flocked to churches in Muslim countries across Asia on Wednesday for Christmas services that have passed peacefully despite concerns over possible bomb attacks by Islamic militants. In Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, the mood was festive but sombre in the wake of violence that has bedevilled the country, such as church bombings two years ago that killed 19 people and October bomb blasts in Bali that left almost 200 dead, mostly foreigners.

Megawati Sukarnoputri was born to power. But in order to wield it for the benefit of Indonesia, she will have to learn to work with, and control, the powerbrokers in parliament and the military. Can she do it? On a day when most business executives in Jakarta were chasing rumors about the possible shape of President Megawati Sukarnoputri's cabinet, investment banker Tim Gray was past caring. Let others worry whether her government will prove any more stable than that of her impeached predecessor, Abdurrahman Wahid. Gray is leaving town. "The type of deals I do, the movement of capital into this market, those sources of capital have dried up," he says. After more than 10 years in Jakarta, he left his job as president of Development Capital, a privately held investment bank, and headed to Dubai. It's a departure with regrets, says the American-born banker. But even with Megawati as president, there's no sense staying. "They've dug themselves a deep hole. To dig themselves out is going to take years."

Breaking in a new boss is always a complicated task. That's especially the case at the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency, responsible for almost $50 billion in corporate assets and bad debts surrendered to the government during Asia's economic crisis. You'd think IBRA staffers would have a neat routine in place by now, having greeted six new bosses since the agency was formed in 1998 — two in the past eight months. But it's always a pain. "People are demoralized," said one insider. This time round Edwin Gerungan, a career banker known for his honesty, was replaced by I Putu Ary Suta, a former head of the capital markets regulatory board.

It is really to be regretted that finding a solution for the Bank Indonesia case seems to take forever. Central banks anywhere in the world, are very respectable institutes, they are honored for their exalted position. Why? For reasons that our economy is no longer a primitive one, when everything was bartered for agriculture products.

Neighbors asked to help rupiah The acting governor of Bank Indonesia has asked Singapore and other neighboring countries to provide technical assistance in shoring up the embattled rupiah.
