Garuda chiefs face poisoning trial

Two former top officials at Indonesia’s national airline have gone on trial in connection with the murder of a leading human rights activist.The ex-president and ex-deputy president of Garuda airlines are accused of helping Pollycarpus Priyanto, an off-duty pilot, kill Munir Said Thalib by poisoning him on a flight to Amsterdam three years ago.Indra Setiawan and his former deputy, Rohainil Aini could face up to 20 years in jail if found guilty.Priyanto was convicted of the actual murder and jailed for 14 years in 2005, but the conviction was overturned a year later by the supreme court a year citing a lack of evidence and witnesses.
