Indonesia awaits corruption verdict
Prosecutors have demanded that Tandjung be sentenced to 4 years in prison for allegedly misusing state funds designated to pay for assistance, including food packages, for people impoverished by the 1998 Asian financial collapse.
"The food packages which were supposed to be delivered by truck to several villages in East Java never arrived," judge Andi Samsan Nganro said.
Tandjung denies any wrongdoing and told reporters: "I am ready for the judges' decision whatever it may be. If I am found guilty, I will appeal."
