ACEH REBEL LEADER CALLS INDONESIAN RULE ABSURD
In a rare interview from his exile in Sweden, the leader of the movement fighting for independence in Indonesia's northernmost province of Aceh, Hasan di Tiro, says Indonesia has no right to govern Aceh. The exclusive interview with the FAR EASTERN ECONOMIC REVIEW appears in its July 29 issue, published Thursday, July 22.
The uncompromising di Tiro calls Indonesia another name for the Dutch East Indies with new rulers, Javanese instead of Dutch. Di Tiro, who declared Aceh's independence in 1976 but fled to Sweden three years later, dismisses Indonesia's new autonomy legislation as irrelevant. The notion of Indonesia is absurd, he says. He also ridicules the Bahasa Indonesia language as "pidgin Malay" and calls the Javanese "barbaric and uncivilized."
Di Tiro puts the overall strength of separatist forces operating in Aceh at around 5,000. Asked what sort of message would he send to a new Indonesian government, perhaps one headed by Megawati Sukarnoputri whose party won the largest number of votes in June's parliamentary elections, Di Tiro says: "No message. They're all the same. Uneducated fools."
The REVIEW obtained the interview amid mounting concern that Aceh may be posing a serious challenge to Indonesian unity. The REVIEW reports Indonesian military concerns that outside support makes Aceh's rebels much more dangerous than the ragtag, poorly armed independence fighters of East Timor and Irian Jaya.
Two battalions of troops--backed by 1,700 paramilitary police from Jakarta--have renewed operations in Aceh response to a wave of ambushes, assassinations and arson attacks in recent weeks. In one of the worst incidents so far, guerrillas killed five soldiers and wounded 20 in a July 19 ambush on a military convoy. More than 70,000 refugees have scattered across Aceh.
