Indonesia Puts Soeharto Under House ArrestThe Indonesian government on Monday put ousted former President Soeharto under house arrest. State prosecutors have questioned the former autocrat several times over allegations of corruption and abuse of power during his 32-year iron rule, and expect to bring charges against him by August.
"His status is changed to house arrest from city arrest starting today," Yushar Yahya, spokesman of the Attorney-General's office told reporters in Jakarta.
Last week, the government said it planned to move the frail 78-year-old former leader from his long-time home in central Jakarta after it became the focus of repeated anti-Soeharto protests which last week turned violent.
Soeharto was forced from office two years ago as the country descended into economic and social mayhem.
