Indonesia could pay forgotten Sjafruddin more respect: VP

Vice President Boediono suggested the government pay more respect to the often forgotten former country leader Sjafruddin Prawiranegara, who ran an emergency government during the 1948 Dutch military aggression which saw then president Soekarno and vice president Hatta held captive.

However, Boediono declined to comment on whether Sjafruddin was fit for the title of national hero.

"I don't want to get into the political aspect," Boediono said during an event to pay homage to Sjafruddin, in Jakarta on Monday, as quoted by tempointeraktif.com.
