  • Description

    Indonesian President Achmed Sukarno today ended his 18-day stay in Japan as he boarded a specially chartered PAA plane for an undisclosed destination.

    While in Japan the Indonesian President was faced with an ultimatum by rebel army leaders in Sumatra to oust the Communist from the Government. The ultimatum expired on Saturday (today).

    In Manila Indonesian rebel leader Colonel Vjente Sumual announced on February 14th that the rebel movement would set up a revolutionary government one minute after the ultimatum to Sukarno expired. Sumual further stated that the rebels would form a free Indonesian Republic with its capital in Bukittinggi, in central Sumatra.

    So it maybe that Sukarno returns to a country faced with the prospect of civil war.
