Indonesia: Blaze at Jakarta's main fuel tank

Devi Girsang talks about the recent fire at Pertamina‘s fuel tank in Jakarta. Since Indonesia is now preparing for legislative and presidential elections this year, speculations among common people spread out that the incident was not merely an accident.


  • I’d like to know what do you think about it? :)

  • Hi Devi.. I think your point is interesting. That’s why I cited your post in here. Given the history of Plumpang Fuel Tank, it might be possible that the blaze was not purely an ‘accident’. Just a few months ago, the police captures suspected terrorists with explosives targeted at the tank.
