Sukanto Tanoto Interview

Sukanto Tanoto made a big show in CCTV China “Dialogue” program.

The show called him as the Wright Brothers of Indonesia. The man with a dream (of clearing out all Indonesian forests)

It started with his fairy tale story how he was made rich, family, companies. All propaganda to make him like a super hero, what the show doesn’t show is how he evade tax, bad debts, corruption, stole people’s land, and destroy Indonesian forests
