Indonesia Ailing Rebel Leader Dies


June 3, 2010

(Kompas)  Founder of Free Aceh Movement Tengku Hasan Tiro passed away after having a treatment at ICCU Zainal Abidin Hospital. “That’s right, Hasan Tiro passed away,” confirmed the spokesman of Aceh handover committee Lingga Dismsyah  on Thursday.  

Indonesia restored the citizenship of the ailing founder of Aceh’s separatist rebel movement on Wednesday after three decades of exile and a civil war in which thousands died.  Hasan di Tiro, 84, who returned home in 2008, had been hospitalized since last month in the Aceh’s provincial capital with a failing heart and a lung infection.  (*)
