The Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama still has a handful of issues confronting him—the biggest one of all is the controversial Jakarta Bay Island Reclamation project. But in last week, Ahok was once again confronted with a scandalous land procurement case. This time, the problematic parcel of land is located in West Cengkareng, West Jakarta.
