When President Suharto of Indonesia arrives in the Hague tomorrow (Thursday) he will me met by massive security precautions. As the President left Indonesia for his twice-delayed state visit, the Dutch Justice Minister, Mr C.H.F. Polak said that all demonstrations would be banned in the hague and surrounding areas tomorrow.
The president postponed his visit after the Indonesian embassy residence in the Hague was stormed and occupied on Monday by Ambonese separatists. The separatists shot dead a Dutch policeman and held the ambassador's family hostage for 12 hours.
President Suharto refused to leave Djakarta, the Indonesian capital, until he had received satisfactory guarantees of his safety from the Dutch Government.
Under present arrangements President Suharto will not leave the Hague, and his movements in the city will be confined to a short car journey from the Royal Palace to the Parliamentary buildings.
From the time the President lands the Ypenburg military air base near the Hague tomorrow, to the time he leaves 24 hours later for his state visit to Bonn, he will be under a heavy security guard.
