Trump's Indonesian business partner slapped with travel ban

Authorities in Indonesia have issued a travel ban against the Indonesian business partner of President Donald Trump after he was accused of threatening a deputy attorney general, officials said Monday.


Billionaire Hary Tanoesoedibjo has been barred from leaving Indonesia from June 22 to July 12 due to the case, which is under investigation by the National Police's criminal investigation unit, said Agung Sampurno, the Indonesian Immigration Office spokesman.


He said the travel ban could be extended upon police request.


The 51-year-old tycoon Tanoesoedibjo, better known as Tanoe, is also an aspiring politician with ambitions to run for Indonesian president in 2019. His company plans to start building two resorts in Indonesia this year that Trump's business is associated with through management and licensing deals.
