Gen. Prasetyo Utomo for allegedly issuing a travel letter for Djoko.Responding to Pinangki’s arrest, Indonesian Anti-Corruption Community (MAKI) coordinator Boyamin Saiman said the case saddened him because as a law enforcement official, Pinangki did not set a good example to the public.“We hope the AGO can develop this case and find the parties who provided the funds and promises to Pinangki,” Boyamin said in a video release.

SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Statement, Women’s Rights Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Commission for Women issued the following statement on House Bill 1948, which was passed by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives last week by a vote of 132-65, further restricting a woman’s right to and ability to receive an abortion in Pennsylvania:“The Pennsylvania Commission for Women has serious concerns with the process by which House Bill 1948 was voted on and passed by the PA House of Representatives. This bill was brought to a vote without a hearing and without receiving input from medical professionals or organizations in the Commonwealth. If this bill becomes law, it would be one of the most restrictive abortion bills in the country. The Commission feels strongly that any changes to abortion laws that impact women to this degree should not occur without a robust discussion that includes input from both the healthcare community in Pennsylvania as well as the public, particularly Pennsylvania women.“The Commission for Women will continue to follow the path of this bill in the Pennsylvania General Assembly and will provide further analysis and information as the process moves forward in order to keep Pennsylvania women, and all Pennsylvanians, informed.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Pennsylvania Commission for Women Statement on House Bill 1948 June 28, 2016
