Hilton & Mulia Hotel sits on troubled lands

The Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) had completed its audit on assets under the management of The State Secretary and handed over the results to Attorney General's Office (AGO) for suspicious assets transfer, including the land of Hilton Hotel and Mulia Hotel at the heart of Jakarta's Central Business District.
"Who owns the lands that Hilton and Mulia sits on," Anwar Nasution, chairman of BPK questioned today.
Both Hilton and Mulia are five-star hotels. Hilton Hotel is owned by Sutowo family. The late Ibnu Sutowo, a former president director of Pertamina during Soeharto administration, built the hotel on a strategic land that was part of Senayan sport center.
Around his Pertamina years, the site on which the Jakarta Hilton now stands was lent to Ibnu by the government, which technically still owns the land---a claim that the family denies.
Meanwhile Mulia Hotel was built by a consortium led by Bambang Trihatmodjo (Soeharto's second son) and property tycoon Djoko Tjandra also on the land under the State Secretary management in mid-90s. Mulia was built as an emergency project to accommodate athletes but then emerged as a luxury hotel.
Unfortunately Anwar didn't disclose the detail of the audit on Hilton and Mulia. "I leave it to the President to decide," he said.
