Lapindo updates

President SBY is expected to make an important decision today, to declare the status of hot mudflow in Sidoarjo, whether it's a natural disaster (so the reconstruction cost would be the state's responsibility) or a disaster caused/triggered by drilling activities of Lapindo Brantas Inc. Watchout!

State Minister for Environment Affairs Rachmat Witoelar told the press yesterday that the mudflow could be considered a natural disaster. While Energy Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said it's the president himself who has the authority to declare the status of the disaster.
