On Oct. 4, 2021, we were invited by KontraS and the Director of Lokataru, Haris Azhar, to tune in on a presentation regarding the Wabu Block gold mine in Intan Jaya Papua. After Haris claimed that the Coordinating Minister of Maritime and Investment Affairs Luhut Pandjaitan had played a role in the gold mine project, the latter reported the former to the police. At the event, we had the opportunity to speak with two Indonesian Party of Struggle (PDIP) politicians, who refused to be named, on the Indonesian military (TNI) commander succession process. As the incumbent Commander of the TNI Hadi Tjahjanto will retire in November 2021, the President is expected to propose a nominee for the succession at the latest in early November.To subscribe please click here
