Indonesia sentences four Australians to death An Indonesian appeals court has sentenced four Australian members of a drug smuggling ring to death, prompting a protest from the Australian government, officials said Wednesday. But the court spared the lives of two other Australians, sentencing them to life in prison. The fate of the men - part of a trafficking ring dubbed the "Bali Nine" by the media - has been followed closely in Australia, which does not have a death penalty. If carried out, the death sentences could strain ties between the two countries.

Australians rate Indonesia as their greatest military threat The Australian public ranks Indonesia as the country’s greatest military threat, a study by a defence think-tank said on Wednesday. The Australian Strategic Policy Institute surveyed opinion polls on defence issues dating back to the 1960s and found Australians now saw less chance of an foreign security threat than at any time in the past 30 years. “However, to the extent that the public identifies a security threat to Australia, there is a greater consensus than ever before that the threat comes from one country: Indonesia,” it said.

The Indonesian government will soon decide whether to impose a state of emergency in Aceh, the rebellious and resource-rich region on the tip of Sumatra island. But if Jakarta were serious about ending the separatist rebellion in Aceh, it would not be talking about a military solution. It would be talking instead about ending corruption, upholding the law, and making the conflict less profitable for all parties concerned. Now more than ever, the war in Aceh is about money, and no one is clean. An autonomy law, adopted last year, has created a giant slush fund for provincial officials from oil and gas revenues, with no effective controls over how the money is spent. Every day, the local press carries stories about misspent funds, missing budget allocations, suspected cronyism, or crooked contractors.
