Courtroom Drama: The Key Players in the Case


SUHARTO
The former President has avoided prosecution so far and his family has refused to negotiate out of court over the return of billions of dollars to state coffers. This time, he may stand trial.

MARZUKI DARUSMAN
The Attorney General has narrowed his case to corruption charges involving $571 million in laundered contributions to a charitable foundation Suharto chaired.

ABDURRAHMAN WAHID
The President promised to pardon Suharto earlier this year if he were tried for abuse of power. But he might not protect his predecessor from corruption charges.

THE OPPOSITION
Some political activists suspect Darusman of a half-hearted effort. Even a trial with a not-guilty verdict could risk renewed street protests.
